The Raven is more like a turkey. John Cusack overacts big time as Edgar Allan Poe in a fairly boring movie about someone killing people using the writer’s works as inspiration. Not much tension, the murders come off as poor “Saw” ripoffs, the mystery muddled, and the big reveal of the killer isn’t that big of a reveal at all. You get the feeling everyone behind this film thought they were a lot more clever than they actually were. Will I rewatch The Raven in the future? Nevermore.
