Smile The Raven Movie

Two years ago I've seen this movie called "The Raven", it's based on Edgar Allan Poe's stories. I've watched it again a few days ago, and I can't help it but seeing some similarities with Jack The Ripper, and I was wondering if anyone has seen this movie?

For those who haven't seen the movie yet; https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yeLFDaZ-7NU Check out the trailer!

I saw it about a year ago and have to agree with you, Jaden.

Anyone who believes that Jack was playing games has to find similarities with a fictional tale of a killer using Poe's stories for his tableaus.

Like the movie Seven, the killer's grand but impractical scheme is formulated for dramatic purposes but it's a fairly accurate portrayal of a "theme killer".
