The Raven (2012) (Blu-ray release 2012-10-9) is a fictionalized account of the last days of Edgar Allan Poe, an American writer.  This story involves a serial killer who imitates the killings written by Poe.  Although a few horrific scenes are done effectively, the movie is only average, and the climax does not make complete sense to me.  Comparatively, the two recent Sherlock Holmes movies (2009 and 2011) are far more entertaining.
