In this gritty thriller, Edgar Allan Poe (John Cusack, Being John
Malkovich) joins forces with a young Baltimore detective (Luke Evans,
Immortals) to hunt down a mad serial killer who's using Poe's own
works as the basis in a string of brutal murders. Directed by James
McTeigue (V for Vendetta, Ninja Assassin), the film also stars Alice
Eve (Sex and the City 2), Brendan Gleeson (In Bruges) and Oliver
Jackson-Cohen (Faster).

When a mother and daughter are found brutally murdered in 19th century
Baltimore, Detective Emmett Fields (Luke Evans) makes a startling
discovery: the crime resembles a fictional murder described in gory
detail in the local newspaper-part of a collection of stories penned
by struggling writer and social pariah Edgar Allan Poe. But even as
Poe is questioned by police, another grisly murder occurs, also
inspired by a popular Poe story.

Realizing a serial killer is on the loose using Poe's writings as the
backdrop for his bloody rampage, Fields enlists the author's help in
stopping the attacks. But when it appears someone close to Poe may
become the murderer's next victim, the stakes become even higher and
the inventor of the detective story calls on his own powers of
deduction to try to solve the case before it's too late.
