Arriving in theaters today, THE RAVEN is the first successful effort in a long series of projects attempting to bring EDGAR ALLEN POE to the screen. An atmospheric thriller, it tells the fictional story of a killer copying the murders committed in POE’S writings. Together with a determined detective, the author is drawn into the search for the madman. Directed by JAMES McTEIGUE, the cast includes JOHN CUSACK, ALICE EVE, LUKE EVANS, BRENDAN GLEESON and KEVIN McNALLY.
At the recent press conference to promote the film, CUSACK talked about the mythological significance of the raven in POE’S life and playing the “godfather of goth.” (CLICK ON THE MEDIA BAR FOR AUDIO) LANGUAGE NSFW
