The Raven (2012)

Mash together a couple of Edgar Allan Poe's Gothic mysteries with the writer as the detective... and you'll get The Raven.

Campy, trashy, and entertaining, John Cusack takes on a role that must have been written for Nicolas Cage - and may yet do it better than Cage.

The Raven is a literate B-movie that would go well as a doublebill with Vincent Price's The Abominable Dr Phibes.
