Conclusion: An admittedly handsome though ultimately lacklustre murder mystery spun out from the suspicious death of Edgar Allan Poe. Here, his mysterious demise is linked to a copycat killer so it all plays like a Victorian version of Saw. Matters are not helped by a completely disinterested Cusack, and pity poor Alice Eve who gets to spend most of the film buried alive.
Conclusion: a series of murders rein-act writer 'edgar alan poe's' gruesome stories. the writer is under suspision for a while, but no charges are brought however as the killer is following the writer's writen word to commit the murders, 'poe' is asked to help profile the killer and try to guess the next target. when 'poe's' beloved 'emily hamilton' is taken by the killer things turn far more urgent and intense for the writer.
Conclusion: what we have here is a murder mystery movie.. if your someone who likes watching a movie guessing who the murderer is then this might be just what your after.. without giving anything away have seen this kind of storyline done before but it takes nothing away from this movie as the story/cast have been well thought up.the movie moves along at a good pace and will keep you thinking all the way to the end..
Conclusion: This is a fantastic horror thriller, a very dark and gory story about a serial killer following the patterns in stories written by Edgar Allan Poe in the last few days of his life, this to me is a very underrated movie and deserves more credit as it is very good, well directed and has a great cast and has some very bloody gory macabre scenes of death.
