Movie Details

The directorial debut of filmmaker Kermit Christman, Descendant is a straight-to-video thriller infused with the spirit of Edgar Allan Poe in more ways than one. Party of Five's Jeremy London stars as Ethan Poe, a descendant of the legendary writer who is living in the elder Poe's footsteps and is attempting to finish his latest novel. Holed up in a small town to concentrate on writing, Ethan falls for a local girl (Katherine Heigl of Grey's Anatomy), but there's trouble in store for the both of them when the ghost of Edgar Allan Poe shows up. ~ Matthew Tobey, Rovi
