THE RAVEN (2012)
– 3 and a half out of 5 stars

Set in 19th century Baltimore, the movie tells a fictionalized account of the last days of Edgar Allan Poe and his encounter with a serial killer whose methods mirrors those in his stories of mystery and macabre.

I entered the cinema wondering why the movie was slapped with a M18 rating. I discovered the reason why a few minutes later. Turns out the partly-severed neck wasn’t the worst thing. Wow, you know sometimes you enter a cinema not expecting it to be quite as thrillingly scary, well, this was it. The sleuthing with John Cusack and Luke Evans was good but the gore – not really.
