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.

I'm into horror movies, creepy, strange, grim and all kinds of horror genre. I like this one because of John Cusak. He played a good role, giving it a sense of human decency that seemed to go hand in hand with the killer he was up against. I like Edgar Allan Poe and if you do too i'd consider going to see this one.

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.

Not a great first date movie maybe, but if a fan of John cusak or Poe, it is an interesting tale, all be it totally fiction, there was no emily in his life, let alone the last days of it.
