First image released of John Cusack as Edgar Allen Poe in The Raven

Directed by James McTeigue comes The Raven, a fictionalized film based on the last days of Edgar Allan Poe and his pursuit of a serial killer basing his kills on Poe’s writing. The film is a long way off yet, due for release March 2012, and this is the first proper look we’ve had at Cusack in the famous role. I believe Cusack is a great choice to play Poe and this dark tale is expected to mirror Seven both in style and in content.

Think of the film as a sort of period piece version of Seven and you get the idea. Also starring in the movie are Alice Eve, Luke Evans and Brendan Gleeson. Check out the image below.

A keen enthusiast and collector of all horror and extreme films. I can be picky as i like quality in my horror. This doesn't necessarily mean it has to be a classic, but as long as it has something to impress me then i'm a fan. I watch films by the rule that if it doesn't bring out some kind of emotive response then it aint worth watching.
