The Raven (1935)
Perhaps one of the strangest movies I've ever seen...
Bela Lugosi was campy as hell and yet hellishly enjoyable.
Boris Karloff's role, on the other hand, was quite subtle and downplayed, yet good in the opposite spectrum of that of Lugosi's.
The plot was, to put it briefly, bizarre. The author of the script may have been an Edgar Allan Poe fanatic. The various incursions regarding Poe, however, although somewhat out of place, are doubtless enjoyable to fans of Poe, especially if they happen to like The Raven and The Pit and the Pendulum.
The script seems to have been tightly edited; the plot moves along at breakneck speed, and there are no meandering scenes whatsoever.
All in all, a rather enjoyableif only mainly for its strangeness "old dark house" movie from the 30s.
