"Fields is doing the precursor of forensic science, and Poe is a modern profiler."

Edgar Allan Poe sure wrote a lot of creepy stories. The Pit and The Pendulum, The Cask of Amontillado and more all featured unique methods of murder that could very easily have given a diehard fan some nasty ideas. That's the premise for The Raven, a historical thriller starring John Cusack as the legendary author, who gets called in by a police detective, played by Luke Evans, to solve a series of crimes based on his works. The Raven comes out on DVD and Blu-ray on October 9, and CraveOnline is proud to present this exclusive preview of the special features on the set, focusing on the casting Evans in one of the lead roles. Luke Evans' career is due for a big boost this year after the December release of The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, in which he co-stars as Bard, the dwarf.
