This week, we have a few groups of people looking to bring historic works of art to a modern audience. There are the reprinted adventures of Nelvana, a superheroine from Canada's Golden Age, a publication of 19th-century illustrations for Poe's "The Raven," and a documentary about a famed Victorian taxidermist.
Edgar Allen Poe's The Raven is like The Night Before Christmas for Halloween. You have to listen to it at least once before November 1st arrives, and who better to deliver one of the most haunting poems ever written than James Earl Jones. So dim the lights, find a comfy chair, maybe even crack a window to get your…
We wanted to like John Cusack's spin on Edgar Allan Poe as a sexy drunk crime-fighter. We desperately wanted this "Saw for people who've passed High School English" movie to reawaken our love for dark eyeliner and graveyard make-out sessions. Basically, we just wanted Goth back!
Before there was black eyeliner-ed youths rocking out to death rock, there was Edgar Allan Poe, the Godfather of Goth. But John Cusack — who plays the thirsty scribe in his wild horror flick The Raven — wants you to know that this angry (and very broke) poet is responsible for so much more. Everyone stole from Poe.…
Watch John Cusack get super pissed as a sexy crime solving version of famed dark poet Edgar Allan Poe in his new old timey horror film, The Raven. Watch the The Pit and the Pendulum get turned into some sort of wacky Saw contraption, as one poor soul begs for his life.
John Cusack is channeling every last bit of sexy right into playing Edgar Allan Poe, in this dark trailer for The Raven. We're all for angsty hipster Cusack, but how is this 1800s facial hair and dark attitude working for you? Hot enough to get his on-screen squeeze, Alice Eve?
How good would Edgar Allan Poe have been at fighting crime? The new trailer for The Raven surmises pretty good, if all of the crimes were based specifically on his poems. In this new trailer for John Cusack's latest film, Edgar Allan Poe is forced to pick up the dueling pistols when his biggest fan makes off with…
The first trailer for The Raven is out, showing off John Cusack as the goateed poet who's tracking down a serial killer (with the cops) who's leaving pieces of his stories as clues. Think of it as old timey Castle, but with half the Fillion charisma!
John Cusack steps into the shoes (and moustache) of Edgar Allan Poe, in the ahistorical murder mystery The Raven. Director James McTeigue says the movie will be like Seven, with a series of grisly killings based on Poe's tales.
Though there are many great wizard battles in cinema, only one stands out in my mind as embodying everything that wizarding represents. I'm speaking of the great, bizarre battle between the good and evil wizards (Vincent Price and Boris Karloff, respectively) in Roger Corman's 1963 classic The Raven. It's funny and…
The latest Tron Legacy clip focuses on the drinking/partying aspects of life in the Grid. More familiar characters are joining The Hobbit. The man playing a possible villain in the Spider-Man reboot doesn't know much about his character either. Spoilerage!
Here's your exclusive first look at a new Halloween treat from Quantum Mechanix. The collectables company got John De Lancie (Q from Star Trek: The Next Generation) to read Edgar Allan Poe's "The Raven." Prepare to be chilled!
Ricardo de Montreuil's snazzy short The Raven cost a mere $5K and was shot over a single weekend. Now Universal wants a Raven feature film, and Mark Wahlberg is potentially on-board to produce and star as the telekinetic hero.
Holy hell the undead ladies of Kiss The Abyss will have you screaming in your sleep for nights. Dead is not better, haven't we learned this by now? Also check out the gorgeous short The Raven.
