James McTeigue's The Raven flies to home video this October

I'm not ashamed to admit that I did not catch THE RAVEN upon its initial theatrical release. The things I heard about its quality were as sordid and ghastly as one of Poe's more disturbing tales. Still, I can't deny that the prospect of sitting on my couch with a sixer and a remote is a semi-appealing one... especially come Halloween season. As it happens, 20th Century Fox plans on releasing the James McTeigue thriller on OCTOBER 9th, so we'll all get to behold it with a handful of candy corn.

John Cusack and Luke Evans star in this blood-curdling tale of terror that's as dark and haunting as the legendary master of the macabre who inspired it - Edgar Allan Poe. Baltimore, 1849. While investigating a horrific double murder, police detective Emmett Fields (Evans) makes a startling discovery: the killer's methods mirror the twisted writings of Edgar Allan Poe (Cusack). Suspecting Poe at first, Fields ultimately enlists his help to stop future attacks. But in this deadly game of cat and mouse, the stakes are raised with each gruesome slaying as the pair races to catch a madman before he brings every one of Poe's shocking stories to chilling life...and death.
