The Raven is a fictionalized account of the final days of the famous gothic writer, Edgar Allan Poe. In the the film, he tracks a serial killer whose crimes mirror works by the author. John Cusack has been cast to play Poe, who’s intellect is challenged by the killer directly. The film hits theaters April 27.

John Cusack honestly wasn’t the talent I’d typically expect to play this role, but he certainly looks like he’s fit for it from the well-assembled theatrical trailer. The Sherlock Holmes style murder mystery is sure to keep us on our toes (hypothetically), as we are taken through the struggle to find a killer.

Screenplay by Ben Livingston and Hannah Shakespeare. Directed by James McTeigue.
