McTeigue describes the project as "like the poem, 'The Raven,' itself, crossed with Se7en."
The part about murders inspired by Poe's stories reminds me of Nathan Fillion's show on ABC, Castle, on which he plays a murder mystery writer. The first episode included just that: murders that mirrored those described in Castle's stories. I have a feeling this project will be a bit more serious than all that, and I look forward to it. Creepy!
