About the Film
John Cusack (2012) is infamous author Edgar Allan Poe in this stylish, gothic thriller from the director of V for Vendetta. When a madman commits horrific murders inspired by Poe’s darkest works, a young Baltimore detective (Luke Evans, Clash of the Titans) joins forces with the writer in a quest to get inside the killer’s mind in order to stop him from making every one of Poe’s brutal stories a blood chilling reality. A deadly game of cat and mouse ensues, which escalates when Poe’s love (Alice Eve, She’s Out of My League) becomes the next target. Brendan Gleeson (In Bruges) co-stars.
Ignore the critics
Ignore all the OTT negative criticisms which I suspect originate from the scene where a critic is literally cut down to size. This is an excellent and moody film filled with Gothic atmosphere. Cusack is spot on too. Enjoyable if you watch with an open mind.
A truly wonderful film!
