Part of Midnight Movies
Fri, Feb 3 at Midnight: Introduction from Randi Eversole, actor, musician, writer, artist, and host of Bird Watching, a podcast about the cultural impact and legacy of THE CROW | BUY TICKETS
Young musician Eric Draven (Brandon Lee in his tragic final role) and his fiancé are murdered on the eve of their Halloween wedding. Exactly one year after their deaths, Eric is risen from the grave and given special powers by a mysterious crow, allowing him to seek out his killers and force them to answer for their crimes. This absolute cult classic comic book adaptation from director Alex Proyas is a gothic romance revenge film for the ages.
“A seamless, pulsating, dazzlingly visual revenge fantasy that stands as one of the most effective live-actioners ever derived from a comic strip.” —Todd McCarthy, Variety (Apr 29, 1994) “It is a stunning work of visual style — the best version of a comic book universe I've seen — and Brandon Lee clearly demonstrates in it that he might have become an action star, had he lived…. It is a sad irony that this film is not only the best thing he accomplished, but is actually more of a screen achievement than any of the films of his father, Bruce Lee.” —Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times (May 13, 1994)
