Storyline

For centuries, a masked hero known as the Raven has battled the forces of darkness - primarily the supernatural syndicate called SERPENT. Unsuspected by the world, the Raven's crusade has been passed down from male to male in one family without interruption. Now, parentless high-school student Tommy Taylor has donned his late father's hood and become the newest Raven, mentored by his spinsterish Aunt Paula. But when SERPENT sends its two deadliest agents - a sensuous witch and a cunning vampire - to eliminate the Raven, Tommy must use all his skills to survive both their deadly powers and their most diabolical trick - the supernatural corruption of his beloved aunt.

Respectable First Feature From Director!
15 June 2004 | by ryow13See all my reviews

This movie shows that J.A. Tripp(Director) will become a man to watch in the world of low budget genre films. "Behold The Raven" does an excellent job building suspense and lovingly stays true to its comic themed origin. The film is shot in a stylistic manner that brings to mind Fritz Lang and Guy Maddin's proactive use of color to move along the story. The mystical aspects of the film are only enhanced by being filmed in a technique reminiscent of early coloring efforts. Like the one's used in the original prints of "Nosferatu" and "The Cabinet Of Dr.Caligari". Also worth mentioning is the excellent sound quality of this feature. These days many low budget features have a sparse sound track. This is not the case with "Behold The Raven". The movie's sound is layered in a way that augments the elements of the story. Building to a remarkable climax near the end. All in all, a damn good first feature for a director.
