Synopsis: A fictionalized account of the last days of Edgar Allan Poe’s life, in which the poet pursues a serial killer whose murders mirror those in the writer’s stories.
Release Date: April 27th, 2012
Thoughts: Coming across as a mixture of Sherlock Holmes, Zodiac and The Silence of the Lambs, the trailer for The Raven is received with open arms by this viewer. John Cusack is a consistently interesting actor with a good gut instinct for movies that have resonance. The last thriller he did, Identity, was fascinating in my book and I’m anticipating more good things from this thriller. Directed by James McTeigue who gave us the flawed but dazzling V for Vendetta, from the looks of it The Raven will provide some nice twists and atmosphere.
