Big things are happening on TV Tropes! New admins, new designs, fewer ads, mobile versions, beta testing opportunities, thematic discovery engine, fun trope tools and toys, and much more - Learn how to help here and discuss here.
These are what we call the 'YMMV items.' Things that some people find in this work. We call them 'your mileage might vary' because not everyone sees these things in the same way. This starts discussions in the trope lists, a thing we don't want. Please use the discussion page if you'd like to discuss any of these items.
YMMV: The Raven (1935)
Complete Monster: Dr. Richard Vollin is an Edgar Allan Poe fanboy who becomes obsessed with a young woman named Jean Thatcher. Vollin tries to destroy her family in vengeance for being spurned. When a Sympathetic Murderer named Bateman begs Vollin to change his face so he can leave a life of crime behind, Vollin instead hideously deforms him so he'll have to assist Vollin in return for having the procedure corrected. Vollin tries to kill Jean's family, putting her father in a trap designed on the bladed pendulum, and forcing Jean and her husband into a room where the walls will close in to crush them, before even Bateman has had enough.
