The ghosts of literary greats seem to be busy at Hollywood Forever Cemetery lately.
Last month, Mark Twain, portrayed by Val Kilmer in prosthetic make up, performed a one man show inside the historic cemetery’s Masonic Lodge.
On April 25th, the Masonic Lodge will take a darker turn for “a summoning of the great spirit of Edgar Allan Poe,” and a special screening of “The Raven,” starring John Cusack. In the new film, Edgar Allan Poe must stop a serial killer in 1800’s era Baltimore who’s been using the author’s stories as inspiration for his murders.
You won’t find tickets to this special event anywhere. But CreepyLA was able to use some nefarious means to obtain a pair of passes for one lucky reader. If you want them, we’re gonna make you flex your own literary muscle.
For your chance at the tickets, leave a comment on this Facebook status update with your own short Edgar Allan Poe inspired poem (8 lines maximum). We’ll be randomly selecting the winner, but we like to make you sweat. Entries due by noon Monday, April 23rd.
Good luck, creeps!
