THE RAVEN comes to the Alamo April 27!
From James McTeigue, the director of the phenomenal V FOR VENDETTA, comes a movie about the master of the macabre, Edgar Allen Poe. THE RAVEN stars the great John Cusack as the infamous and brilliant writer. When a lunatic begins acting out the crimes described in Poe's darkest works, Poe teams up with a Baltimore detective (Luke Evans, CLASH OF THE TITANS) to solve the mystery and nab the madman.
Also starring Brendan Gleeson (BRAVEHEART) and the beautiful Alice Eve (SHE'S OUT OF MY LEAGUE) as the love of Poe's life and the killer's target, THE RAVEN is a dark, stylish thriller and a love letter to the gothic atmosphere that permeates each of Poe's works.
"McTeigue's vision of Baltimore is vibrant and alluring, all gothic architecture and swirling fog, while Cusack is eminently watchable as the boozy, perpetually broke Poe..."--Terry Staunton,RADIO TIMES
"Stephen King's Misery and Updike's Bech Noir spring to mind, and it's a nice touch to give Baltimore a serial killer over a century before Dr Hannibal Lecter was employed by the Johns Hopkins Medical Centre in that city."--Peter Bradshaw, GUARDIAN UK
"Enjoyable period thriller that plays like a Gothic version of Seven and succeeds thanks to a literate script, atmospheric direction, some suitably grisly murder sequences and a superb performance from John Cusack."--Matthew Turner, VIEW LONDON
