John Cusack stars as the infamous author, Edgar Allen Poe. When a madman begins committing horrific murders inspired by Poe's darkest works, a young Baltimore detective (Luke Evans) joins forces with Poe in a quest to get inside the killer's mind in order to stop him from making every one of Poe's brutal stories a blood chilling reality. A deadly game of cat and mouse ensues, which escalates when Poe's love (Alice Eve) becomes the next target.
This movie reminded me of the "Sherlock Holmes" movies, however, I found it to be a bit too predictable. Overall, the movie was okay, but I would wait to see it on DVD. Fortunately, I saw an advance screening and did not have to spend money on this film.
