Fox will be bringing James McTeigue’s latest drama, The Raven, to Blu-Ray this October. The film stars John Cusack, Alice Eve and Luke Evans.
Edgar Allan Poe is without a doubt one of the most important literary figures of all-time, which meant it was only a matter of time before someone translated that to a motion picture for the big screen.
Director James McTeigue (V for Vendetta) attempts to dramatize the last days of Poe with a horror mystery that is well-acted, but predictable and illogical. It’s not complete trash but overall, The Raven is gory, filled with plot-holes and forgettable on almost every level.
Our very own Kristal Cooper had this to say about the film in her official review:
It’s silly, has plot holes big enough to drive a truck through and is little more than a gothic version of Law & Order, yet it has a macabre charm that will keep you interested for the film’s duration.
The film will be coming to Blu-Ray/DVD/Digital Copy combo pack with a 1080p video transfer, a 5.1 DTS-HD Master Audio track and the following bonus content:
- Commentary by director James McTeigue and producers Marc D. Evans, Trevor Macy, & Aaron Ryder
- Theatrical trailer
- 6 Deleted/extended scenes
- 5 Behind-the-scenes featurettes
The Raven will be released on October 9th, 2012.
