The Raven (2006)


A classic horror from Edgar Allan Poe brought to life through the eyes of Horror Master Ulli Lommel!

Review

*Squints*




This is...I don't even... Ulli Lommel (!) has directed 66 movies (at the time of writing) and skipping through a few of them on IMDB shows that most of them have less the 2/10. This title is no different. I picked it up in a box of DVD's from somewhere (all of which are low budget horror) so I didn't know what to expect. The DVD presentation (the box is okay) had the roughest title card I'd seen in sometime and a couple of trailers for other CLASSIC ULLI LOMMEL films that were...awful.

The film makes no sense. At all. As a "retelling" of Poe's The Raven it's off kilter. Mostly because Edgar Allen Poe is the love interest, I think, of Lenore - the protagonist - and The Raven is not quothed. Neverwas. I guess it was trying to be artsy?

The production quality is shockingly bad, and the acting is terrible. Look, I've never said it before. Don't watch this "film".
