What can I say.. I found the movie atmospheric and evocative. I love films that aren't simply formulaic pablum and this movie surpassed my every expectation. Well worth seeing and highly recommended.

Recently my blockbuster was having a going out of business sale and my dad bought this just thinking it was a good movie. This movie was really good the way they twist the story of edgar allen poe it was like watching abraham linclon vampire hunter. The killings was very gorey but this movie is not a horror movie its a mystery who is the killer?. the ending is suprise but it was really good.

It was a pretty good movie good who done it that keeps you wondering throughout the whole film who the murderer is, the dialogue was bad at some points though.

Can we have back the old John Cusack where he picks a movie with a good story (Runaway Jury, Identity) or witty romantic humor (Gross Pointe Blank, Serendipity) or...Well just not this ever again.
There are two movies from the Cusack collection I will never watch again - The Ice Harvest and The Raven.
Problems with the movie:
- Predicable villian by 30 minutes into the film
- More face time on Cusack than focus on developing a good story
- Poor directing
- Poor production
- Passable casting
- Soft leading lady
- I didn't spend as much on the ticket as some people did.
Sorry John - you latest movie was a joke. One you might wish you could undue.

John Cusack is classic in his role of Poe. Just creepy enough to pull it off. Not too bloody, just enough to make a point. If you like John Cusack, or Luke Evans it's a must see. If you like a good mystery, or the Edgar Allan Poe stories, it a must see as well.
