Hollywood, as we all know, has not always been kind to Mr. Poe and his works. Certainly, the works are still there on the shelf, ready to be read and enjoyed. But certain...liberties, shall we say...have always been taken. Case in point is a previous version of The Raven in which it went from a moving poem about loss to a duel between wizards.
As an illustration of this principle, Aaron Poole, Brian Fitzpatrick, Ian Cooke and the Cabin Fever Consortium produced this video, in which they stick to the original text and create a new modern masterpiece. Or a necessary equivalent. Enjoy.
