Dark and Dreamy. Do not underestimate this movie
Reviewed in the United States on April 16, 2020
I am so glad I randomly found this movie to rent on Amazon! I love dark and creepy movies and books. I did not see it when it came out in 2012, but I wish I had seen it in the theaters. It was really suspenseful and entertaining - quite dark and kind of dreamy. It reminded me a lot of Tim Burton's "Sleepy Hollow," another one of my other favorite movies of this genre. I liked Alice Eve as Emily, and I thought John Cusack was great in a more serious acting role as Edgar Allan Poe. Luke Evans was so intense and absolutely fantastic as Fields. I really liked this movie and I am not a huge fan of horror. Dark and suspenseful, sure, but horror, no thanks. There were a few scary and gory moments, but if I can handle them, I'm guessing most adults should be able to as well.
