Next Friday, April 27, is the release date of The Raven, a movie starring John Cusack as Baltimore’s Edgar Allan Poe. (See the resemblance?) The movie, a “thriller,” is about a serial killer whose murders in 19th-century Baltimore are inspired by “The Murders in the Rue Morgue” and “The Pit and the Pendulum” and other works by Poe. The doomed poet and author (John Cusack) joins forces with a young Baltimore detective (Luke Evans) to hunt down the murderer.
Although the movie depicts Baltimore, we missed out on this one. It was shot in Belgrade and Budapest in 2010.
