The Raven is a fictionalized account of the final days of gothic writer Edgar Allan Poe as he tracks a serial killer whose crimes mirror works by the famous author. Coming from V for Vendetta director James McTeigue, starring John Cusack as Poe and Luke Evans as Baltimore Detective Emmett Fields, and featuring Brendan Gleeson, Alice Eve, and Oliver Jackson-Cohen, this is one potential-filled period thriller.
When a mother and daughter are found brutally murdered in 19th century Baltimore, Detective Emmett Fields makes a startling discovery: the crime resembles a fictional murder described in gory detail in the local newspaper – part of a collection of stories penned by struggling writer and social pariah Edgar Allan Poe.

But when it appears someone close to Poe may become the murderer’s next victim, the stakes become even higher and the inventor of the detective story calls on his own powers of deduction to try to solve the case before it’s too late.
