Hero complex at its finest…
This movie had all the makings of a great folk horror/ creature feature… but a few missteps sent it down the wrong forest path…
Raven’s Hollow had a relatively original and intriguing plot in the grand scheme of things. Is it 100% something you have NEVER seen before? No. But there were aspects and twists to this tale that felt fresh and different. Definitely a slow burn with some good tension building and solid spook factor. The movie also looked great (quality and shots), score was on point and the special effects were pretty great as well.
I would say the biggest misstep here was the acting/ casting. Unfortunately, some very stilted performances and iffy delivery did the movie some detrimental disservices. Pretty much everyone faltered at some point (except maybe the mother) causing a continual back and forth between being in the moment and being pulled out of it. Unfortunately, the worst of the bunch was the actor who played Poe. While I don’t think he did an abismal job or is a bad actor, as an actor myself I didn’t find anything particularly redeeming or down to earth about his performance as a whole or really his delivery in any one moment specifically either.
I also had a bit of an issue with the ending. Not so much with the ending itself but more so the way it was delivered to us. Maybe I’m simple, but it got a bit convoluted and a tad confusing, even with the exposition being in a moderately spoonfed monologue.
At the end of the day this was a creative bit of fiction about the makings of what we know Edgar Allan Poe to be today, filled with little Easter egg references to his works if you are familiar. It was spooky and had some interesting bits throughout and if you can look past the questionable acting and the slow pace it is worth a watch. Would recommend.
woulda, coulda, shoulda
Oh well, this is a huge missed opportunity.
There is nothing new here…The small village and its “weird” inhabitants, the sense of dread and of something mysterious that pervades the whole place. The idea of using Poe’s character and to try to weave the mystery of Raven’s Hole into Poe’s life is noteworthy. But the execution is what killed what could have been a much better film. It starts OK but soon the whole thing derails and we have yet another subpar horror film from Shudder…It is harmless, toothless and totally forgettable.
In the end, Raven’s Hole is kinda OK for one viewing while one is doing something else…
