Roger Corman goes for a straight horror comedy in this adaptation of the famous Poe poem, "The Raven," and it works like a charm. It's filled with wonderfully cliche gothic sets and themes which make you feel right at home when watching it during Halloween season. The cast is wonderful and is filled with cinema legends; Vincent Price, Peter Lorre, Boris Karloff, and Jack Nicholson all play key roles in this film. Very funny and very tongue-in-cheek, "The Raven" is sure to entertain.

Starts off rather terrible with completely unfunny Price and Lorre with a bumbling Nicholson. It doesn't get any better until Karloff enters the picture; what they really needed was a straight man and Boris is one of the best. This film gets much more interesting when finally the ravishing Hazel Court appears in a darker role. The old school wizards' duel is awesome in a cheesy but secretly always wanted to see sort of way. Overall disappointing but the final act is satisfying.

Better than the Corman's usual Poe stuff--perhaps because it bears almost no relation to the poem itself. The magician's duel between Price and Karloff is enchanting (pun intended).

I think this is the movie by Corman I enjoyed less. Apart from the usual good points of his movies, the lack of a really good humour (note: it's a comedy) spoils it and didn't work for me, it even made me sleepy. Corman has made better things, even better bad things.

Oh my god, this was fucking fantastic. Back in the day, this must have been every horror fan's (with a sense of humor) dream; Vincent Price, Peter Lorre, Boris Karloff (and a young Jack Nicholson who does a pretty awful job), all in the same movie and all doing a fantastic job! I had a massive grin on my face the entire time, especially during the duel, which was fantastic. It's a shame it wasn't a serious adaptation of Poe's poem though. 'What's that?' 'Entrails of troubled horse..'

Price. Karloff. Lorre. Nicholson? Damn funny and it's obvious the actors had a lot of fun making this.

Price, Lorre, Karloff, Nicholson. Really that's reason enough to watch this silly movie that turns The Raven into a film about wizards and magic duels. It's completely absurd but fun to watch because while no one is taking any of it seriously they're still doing just enough to give us good campy fun.
