Edgar Allan Poe Horror Biopic Raven's Hollow Gets Disturbing First Trailer

The film will arrive September 22 on Shudder.


Shudder has released an official trailer for its upcoming original film, Raven's Hollow. The movie, a film that explores the early days of Edgar Allan Poe's life in 1830 while serving in the military, will arrive September 22 on the horror streaming service.

A synopsis is as follows: "West Point military Cadet Edgar Allan Poe and four other cadets on a training exercise in upstate New York come upon a man eviscerated on a bizarre wooden rack. His dying words direct them to a forgotten community, which they believe is guarding sinister secrets. Enthralled by the Innkeeper's beautiful and mysterious daughter Charlotte and fueled by the town resident's refusal to speak to the murder, Poe determines to uncover the truth. Risking his life and more, Poe ultimately comes face to face with the terror that will haunt him forever."

William Moseley (Chronicles of Narnia) stars as Poe, supported by a cast of British talent that includes Melanie Zanetti (Young Rock), Kate Dickie (Game of Thrones), David Hayman (The Nest), Oberon K. A. Adjepong (The Dark Tower), and Callum Woodhouse (All Creatures Great and Small). Writer-director Christopher Hatton (Star Trek: The Next Generation) co-wrote the film with Chuck Reeves (Ogre).

Ahead of the film's debut, Raven's Hollow will have a world premiere at London's Arrow FrightFest on August 27.
