Storyline

Writer/director Peter Bradley brings Edgar Allan Poe's classic horror poem,THE RAVEN, to chilling life in a faithful, word-for-word adaption. Based not completely in reality, but not completely in fantasy, one man's self-induced torture over the loss of his lover manifests itself and pushes him over the edge of sanity. This stylized piece captures the twisted, tortured world of Poe in a simple, yet highly detailed way that has to be seen and heard to be believed. Written by Anonymous

Superb? I wouldn't go that far
20 March 2005 | by hoehn0113See all my reviews

What's so different about this film than with every other 'Raven' ever made? I saw one that was original in the fact that it wasn't even a bird at all. It was a woman and they had her perched above the chamber door. It was actually pretty good. Another thing interesting about it was that it wasn't told in from the author's point of view. It was told from both his and The Raven's. I wouldn't say it was scarier, but then again I would say this particular Raven was scary either.

The only serious issue I had was with the bird itself. It wasn't at the level of the rest of the film. The film was okay, but it could have been better. A lot better.
