‘Raven’s Hollow’ Interview: Director Christopher Hatton Talks Edgar Allan Poe Shudder Horror Film


We were lucky enough to have a video chat with filmmaker Christopher Hatton (Battle of the Damned, Robotropolis), whose fourth feature film, gothic horror film Raven’s Hollow, is streaming on Shudder from September 22nd.

The film is a gothic horror retelling of the life of Edgar Allan Poe and features a cast of breakout British talent comprised of William Moseley (The Chronicles of Narnia), Melanie Zanetti (Love and Monsters), and Multi-Award-Winning Actress Kate Dickie (Game of Thrones), among others.

Raven’s Hollow is set in Autumn, 1830. West Point military Cadet Edgar Allan Poe and four other cadets on a training exercise in upstate New York come upon a man eviscerated on a bizarre wooden rack. His dying words direct them to a forgotten community, which they believe is guarding sinister secrets. Enthralled by the Innkeeper’s beautiful and mysterious daughter Charlotte and fuelled by the town resident’s refusal to speak to the murder, Poe determines to uncover the truth. Risking his life and more, Poe ultimately comes face to face with the terror that will haunt him forever.

Hatton co-wrote alongside Chuck Reeves and the film is produced by Caroline Stern for Canoe Film, as well as Andrejs Ekis for Cinevilla Studios, and Todd Lundbohm and Mark Andrews for 828 Media Capital.
