So it’s only fiction, the plot is not about Edgar Allen Poe’s real life but rather a homage to his stories.
Here’s a film you’d assume was directed by Tim Burton. The trailer is just a teaser leaving only a glimpse of gruesome murders. You’ve heard it all before, the killer copies the writer, it’s nothing new. Although maybe a bit more tense when you’ve read the stories of Edgar Allen Poe. This could be the dark horse of 2012 as the director James Mcteigue if you remember also directed V for Vendetta, underrated but brilliant. Here’s hoping The Raven is as dark, artistic and gruesome as Edgar’s writing.
