A serial killer copies Edgar Allan Poe’s crimes in 1849’s Baltimore, dragging onto himself the cops and the writer he is drawing inspiration from.
Interesting, gripping and atmospheric.
I found John Cusack suitable for the role of Edgar Allan Poe and the story well paced.
It seems the idea stems from the writer’s mysterious death on a park bench that very year.
I did watch the Italian dubbed version, as I found it absolutely impossible to find the English anywhere on the web (it’s getting harder and harder to watch movies online without the burden of a fee).
I understand there’s another version of the The Raven dated back to 1935.
