Still shot from the movie: The Raven.

The Raven

Life mirrors art, or so it is feared when Edgar Allan Poe's poem, The Raven, becomes the inspiration of a serial killer. This fictional period piece portrays the horror author (played by John Cusack) as an advisor on the macabre case, hoping to catch the murderer before he commits any more grisly acts.
