After rummaging through the old horror classics, I came across The Raven. I'm glad I did. Lugosi and Karloff shine together in this Poe inspired tale. You really have to be astonished by how good Lugosi plays Richard Vollin. His maniacal laugh and speeches are very interesting to watch. Karloff plays his part equally well as a fugitive murderer who you actually root for. Needing each other to fulfill their unmoral desires, the story spirals into an engaging ride through a classic horror atmosphere. If you're interested in seeing any 70+ year old horrors films, this is a good one. Also, the synopsis written on this website is incorrect, although the credits are right.
