The works of Edgar Allan Poe may have bored you in high school, but the upcoming thriller will keep you on the edge of your seat. And so will this amazing giveaway opportunity.
One lucky winner will score a pair of tickets to the premiere and after-party for "The Raven" in Los Angeles. Seriously. We can hear your tell-tale hearts pounding already.
The movie stars John Cusack as the famously melancholy poet who teams up with Luke Evans' Detective Fields to solve a series of murders inspired by Poe's dark and twisted fiction. As the body count rises and no suspect is identified, Poe's own beloved, played by Alice Eve, finds herself next on killer's lit-inspired spree. Who ever said 19th-century poets can't be crime-solving badasses too?
Also badass? This prize.
One grand prize winner will receive two tickets to "The Raven" premiere and after-party in Los Angeles on April 23. Sorry though, you'll have to prepare your own horse and carriage; transportation will not be provided.
One first prize winner can be the envy of every English teacher with his or her own book, "The Complete Tales and Poems of Edgar Allan Poe," along with a movie poster autographed by stars John Cusack and Alice Eve.
So how can you get involved before these prizes are nevermore?
