The Crow Movies

The Crow

The Crow is a 1994 film adaptation of James O'Barr's comic book of the same name (see The Crow). It was directed by Alex Proyas and starred Brandon Lee, gaining instant notoriety even before its release when Lee was accidentally killed during filming.

The Crow: City of Angels

The Crow: City of Angels is the 1996 sequel to cult movie and comic The Crow by James O'Barr. It was directed by Tim Pope.
It was obvious that the original film was going to be difficult to follow. With the cult status gained by Brandon Lee's portrayal of the lead character, and indeed his death filming the role, Pope would have to win over a mass of fans that could not see how a sequel could be made. The tagline for the film was "There will be another" and many say they wish there did not have to be - it was poorly received by critics, the general public and fans of the original. It has since been revealed that the movie undertook heavy editing from studio executives, unhappy after viewing the directors original downbeat first cut of the movie, which changed the movie considerably from the director's intended vision in order to make it more like a carbon copy of the original. As the movie was never meant as this, the final cut was incoherent and lacking in purpose.

The Crow: Stairway to Heaven

The Crow: Stairway to Heaven was a 1998 Canadian television series created by Bryce Zabel based on The Crow comic by James O'Barr. The series consisted of 22 episodes 44 minutes long and ran between September 25, 1998 and May 22, 1999 on the Sci-Fi Channel. Many scences were filmed in the Sun Tower in Vancouver, British Columbia.

The Crow: Salvation

The Crow: Salvation was the third movie based on The Crow comic by James O'Barr. It was directed by Bharat Nalluri and released direct to video in 2000 after its distributor cancelled the intended theatrical release. The original movie gained a cult following while the second (The Crow: City of Angels) was poorly received. The story revolves around Alex Corvis (Eric Mabius) who is wrongly executed for the murder of his girlfriend. He is brought back to life to seek justice, getting revenge on the true murderers. Eventually he discovers a corrupt police force and needs the help of his girlfriend's sister, played by Kirsten Dunst.
Although far from a success this film was seen to be much better than the other sequel, The Crow: City of Angels.

The Crow: Wicked Prayer

The Crow: Wicked Prayer was the fourth movie based on The Crow comic by James O'Barr. It was directed by Lance Mungia, inspired by the Norman Partridge novel. It had a one week theatrical premiere on June 3rd, 2005 at AMC Pacific Place Theatre in Seattle Washington before being released direct to video on July 19th, 2005. The original movie gained a cult following while the sequels were poorly received.
