The Raven DVD review
The Raven succeeds in a few areas but also falls short in a number of means mostly due to director James McTeigue’s handling of Edgar Allan Poe’s most famous poem.
The film opens with a reminder of Poe’s mysterious death. The film then carries on bringing the Gothic write to life in the form of John Cusack, who must come to the aid of the Baltimore police after a series of grisly murders that have striking similarities to the deaths in several of Poe’s best-known tales.
However, his beloved Emily becomes a kidnapping victim of the unknown killer and Poe decides to join the investigator. Soon a dangerous game of cat and mouse erupts with Poe in the midst of one of his own dreamt up tales.
It’s a shame that both the director and the screenwriters end up not fulfilling the interesting concept at hand.
