Posted Wed Jul 18, 2012 at 03:20 PM PDT by

The gothic murder mystery from director James McTeigue will be gently tapping at Blu-ray's door this October.

In an early announcement to retailers, 20th Century Fox is preparing 'The Raven' for Blu-ray on October 9.

John Cusack and Luke Evans star in this blood-curdling tale of terror that's as dark and haunting as the legendary master of the macabre who inspired it - Edgar Allan Poe.

Baltimore, 1849. While investigating a horrific double murder, police detective Emmett Fields (Evans) makes a startling discovery: the killer's methods mirror the twisted writings of Edgar Allan Poe (Cusack). Suspecting Poe at first, Fields ultimately enlists his help to stop future attacks. But in this deadly game of cat and mouse, the stakes are raised with each gruesome slaying as the pair races to catch a madman before he brings every one of Poe's shocking stories to chilling life...and death.

The Blu-ray/DVD/Digital Copy combo pack will feature 1080p video, and DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 soundtrack, and supplements will include: Audio Commentary by Director James McTeigue, Producers Marc D. Evans; and a Theatrical Trailer.

Blu-ray exclusives include: Deleted & Extended Scenes; The Raven Guts: Bringing Death to Life; The Madness, Misery, and Mystery of Edgar Allan Poe; Behind the Beauty and Horror; The Raven Presents John Cusack & James McTeigue; and Music for the Raven: The Team.

Suggested list price for the Blu-ray is $39.99.
