Interesting question, huh? In celebration of The Raven‘s home video arrival on October 9th, 2012, the powers-that-be have concocted an interactive ink blot test to determine the answer. Turn up your sound, turn on your camera if you have one, and dig it!
This experience will provide users the harrowing chance to gaze at a series of ink blots to determine if they are a victim or a serial killer. But first, users will activate their webcams to “capture” their experience as they intently stare at one disturbing ink blot after another. As they gaze closer and deeper into the experience – SHOCK – a Raven explodes through the opened book coming straight towards the screen. As the user reacts, the webcam captures his or her response, which should be harrowing!
Users will then be “rewarded” with their captured image that can then be shared on Facebook or downloaded. And of course, they can send it to a friend who can then be “tested” as well.
Interesting? You bet ya! Click on the image below to get started!

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), 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 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.
