Hero complex at its finest…
This movie had all the makings of a great folk horror/ creature feature… but a few missteps sent it down the wrong forest path…
Raven’s Hollow had a relatively original and intriguing plot in the grand scheme of things. Is it 100% something you have NEVER seen before? No. But there were aspects and twists to this tale that felt fresh and different. Definitely a slow burn with some good tension building and solid spook factor. The movie also looked great (quality and shots), score was on point and the special effects were pretty great as well.
I would say the biggest misstep here was the acting/ casting. Unfortunately, some very stilted performances and iffy delivery did the movie some detrimental disservices. Pretty much everyone faltered at some point (except maybe the mother) causing a continual back and forth between being in the moment and being pulled out of it. Unfortunately, the worst of the bunch was the actor who played Poe. While I don’t think he did an abismal job or is a bad actor, as an actor myself I didn’t find anything particularly redeeming or down to earth about his performance as a whole or really his delivery in any one moment specifically either.
I also had a bit of an issue with the ending. Not so much with the ending itself but more so the way it was delivered to us. Maybe I’m simple, but it got a bit convoluted and a tad confusing, even with the exposition being in a moderately spoonfed monologue.
At the end of the day this was a creative bit of fiction about the makings of what we know Edgar Allan Poe to be today, filled with little Easter egg references to his works if you are familiar. It was spooky and had some interesting bits throughout and if you can look past the questionable acting and the slow pace it is worth a watch. Would recommend.
Directed by Christopher Hatton, who co-wrote this with Chuck Reeves, Raven’s Hollow is about five West Point cadets finding the body of a dying man in a town where no one seems to care and even worse, may take all of their lives. Also: one of them is Edgar Allan Poe (William Moseley, Peter from The Chronicles of Narnia series).
Between a demonic raven, a tell-tale heart and a man named Usher, this has tons of Poe references, as well as some good gore and a fun monster. I like the idea of Poe trying to solve this mystery, even if it feels a lot like Sleepy Hollow. The town of Raven’s Hollow is a lot deadlier, however. There’s a well shot opening of a girl being followed through the woods by an entity, an awesome scare when the dead body awakens to say the word “Raven” and even a little bit of doomed romance.
The real Poe disliked being in the army so much that he got himself court-martialed.
