I think you'll find the link below to be quite informative.  Poe was a master at developing the mood of his works - he knew exactly how to make his readers feel what he wanted them to feel.  He didn't just say things were scary, gruesome, creepy, etc.  He used language that truly made his readers believe that everything going on in the story was scary, gruesome, creepy, etc.  Good luck!
