The Raven Trailer Starring John Cusack

The Raven Trailer: John Cusack Gets Into Edgar Allan Poe's Gory Lore

If you're at all familiar with the work of Edgar Allan Poe, then you know just how dark and twisted the 19th-century writer could be. With that in mind, it's no surprise that the trailer for the The Raven looks mysterious and gruesome — it centers on a serial killer that gets inspiration from Poe's various tales. Naturally, the detective that's investigating (Luke Evans) immediately points a finger at Edgar himself (John Cusack). When Edgar asserts his innocence, he gets sucked into the murderer's sordid game that eventually targets Edgar's love (Alice Eve) to be the subject of one of Edgar's stories.

The film looks creepy (if not downright nauseating), and it's fun to recognize Poe's various work, like "The Pit and the Pendulum." My biggest gripe about the trailer is that I'm not completely buying Cusack as Poe, particularly his delivery with some of the dated dialogue. The film hits theaters next March, but get your first peek after the jump.
