New TV Spot for John Cusack's 'The Raven'

I guess the closest corollary to 'The Raven' would have to be 'Sherlock Holmes'. However, from the look of trailers they're nothing alike. Raven is far less self-aware, unctuous. On a basic level the visuals are stark but compelling, as opposed to the ornate glitter in Sherlock. Raven seems genuine, and may revive a sense of the macabre. There's suspense -- almost a lost art -- and horror without (much) gore. It's eerie in a psychological way -- very rare these days.

I think weary audiences will respond.
