"...In There Stepped A Stately Raven..."

Another fantastic Universal classic horror film starring Bela Lugosi and Boris Karloff, and based on the works of Edgar Allan Poe. Actually the title card reads "suggested by Edgar Allan Poe's immortal classic". It would be nearly impossible to make a feature-length film based solely on a poem of 108 lines. So what the filmmakers do is weave elements of Poe's poem into the story. For example, Bela... read more
View all The Raven reviews
A wealthy judge coaxes the brilliant but eccentric neurological surgeon Dr. Vollin (Lugosi), who also has an obsessive penchant for Edgar Allen Poe, out of retirement to save the life of his daughter, a dancer crippled and brain damaged in an auto wreck. Vollin restores her completely, but also envisions her as his "Lenore," and cooks up a scheme to kidnap the woman and torture and kill her fiance' and father in his Poe-inspired dungeon. To do his dirty work, Vollin recruits a wanted criminal (Karloff), and turns him into a hideous monster to guarantee his subservience.

TDcore's Horror Jounral 2019: December (32 movies items)

"Even for it's time period, this is an incredibly simple-minded horror film. It was one of the first to pair Lugosi and Karloff, and their performances are the only things that keep this cheesy debacle watchable. The plot is as threadbare as they come, and mostly concerns a Poe-obsessed doctor (Lugosi) who falls in love with a young woman whom he saves on the operating table. When her father refuses to allow the relationship, he invites her family and fiance to his mansion, so that he can torture"

Movies Based on The Works of Edgar Allan Poe (14 movies items)

" This early horror film takes it name from Poe’s famous poem of the same name but it’s plot is not taken from a single story. Instead, the movie draws inspiration from the entire body of Poe’s work, referencing numerous stories throughout."
