The macabre and lurid tales of Edgar Allan Poe are vividly
brought to life—and death—in THE RAVEN, a stylish, Gothic thriller directed by
V FOR VENDETTA’s James McTeigue. When a madman begins committing horrific
murders inspired by Poe’s darkest works, a young Baltimore detective (Luke
Evans of IMMORTALS and CLASH OF THE TITANS) joins forces with Poe in a quest to
get inside the killer’s mind in order to stop him from making every one of
Poe’s brutal stories a blood-chilling reality. A deadly game of cat and mouse
ensues, which escalates when Poe’s love (Alice Eve of SHE’S OUT OF MY LEAGUE)
becomes the next target. THE RAVEN also stars Brendan Gleeson (28 DAYS LATER)
and Oliver Jackson-Cohen (FASTER).
Reviewing THE RAVEN, critic Matthew Turner of View Auckland
said: “Enjoyable period thriller that plays like a Gothic version of SE7EN and
succeeds thanks to a literate script, atmospheric direction, some suitably
grisly murder sequences and a superb performance from John Cusack.” Peter
Bradshaw of The Guardian agreed on the star’s turn: “[Cusack] is wittily cast
as the washed-up Poe.” Finally, Ross Miller of Thoughts on Film noted: “[THE
RAVEN] has an interesting mystery at its core—a whodunit that actually keeps
you guessing who did it.”
