Good movie. Kept my interest.
Slight Spoilers: Effective suspense, an interesting mystery, and a pinch of realistic gore. I'm taking off one skull because I thought the titular Raven was scariest when it was unseen or just out of frame. It made the monster feel a lot more eldritch like it was beyond human comprehension. The big CGI monster at the end was a lot less scarey by comparison and looked kinda silly.
Fun interpretation of Poe's work.
I liked it.
Yup, someone already commented my thought, just a slow poetic burn !
