poe's most famous work gets a stylish adaptation from director james mcteigue. starring reliable john cusack as poe himself, falsely accused of a series of grisly murders based on poe's own works, mcteigue skilfully recreates victorian england as a backdrop for poe's efforts to prove his innocence, and free his beloved, played by the lovely alice eve, from the clutches of the killer.

not a good john cusak movie at all. sort of a cross between pushing tin and the phantom of the opera. cusak's character is far too manic all the way through and no one is evber really developed. take out the gore and you have a decent made for tv movie. wait for the cheap theaters...

it was ok, not a horror per se, but a gruesome mystery with quite explicit graphic violence in your face even if not that often. an interesting plot that could've been better. if you are claustrophobic, i don't recommend it. some parts were a bit too predictable and that spoils it for a 'whodunit'.
edgar allen poe... playing a sleuth... unlikely even if he supposedly creates the mysteries to which he must uncover.

i'm a " who done it " junkie and this one " has it ". if you go to be entertained in the " a " typlical action movie tradittion, you will be probably disappointed. if you go there to get intellectually involved, take each character (as they are introduced) and look for their part in the web of (must pick the correct adjective)procative story telling. if that doesnt help then try to think of the time at which it was all supposed to have happened. his ( poe's ) behaviour ( and so would others ) would have been off the charts. awesome and masterfull portrail of a man who had faced his demons and was ready to live and ready to die, that as they say is " the rub "
