If the people we love are stolen from us,
the way to have them live on is to never stop loving them.
Buildings burn, people die, but real love is forever.

Exactly a year later, Eric is brought back to life and granted the powers of superhuman strength and vision in order that he may seek vengeance on those who killed him - all under the watchful eye of a mysterious crow.
One by one, Eric seeks out the gang, who are out for another evening of mayhem and violence, unaware of the fate that awaits them...

The Crow phenomemon has gained a worldwide cult following, both through the movie and the comics that started it all off.
Fans of Brandon Lee also hold a special place for The Crow in their hearts as the actor died during the shooting of the film.
To my thinking, The Crow is one of the best movies ever made
- but don't just take my opinion...
|"Better than BATMAN"
|"TREMENDOUS...Lee is EXCELLENT"
|"The best action fantasy since TERMINATOR 2"
LA Daily News
|"STUNNING... LEE IS SENSATIONAL"
|"EXCELLENT... A wondrous film"
|"Brilliant special effects"
Although The Crow is a very violent film, it is basically a love story. It says that love knows no bounds and can even reach out from beyond the grave. The violence is entirely justified - Eric is not killing just for the sake of it, he is seeking revenge for what was done to him and his beloved Shelley.
The film has other angles though - The villans are so vivid and well defined. Their mindless violence has a sinister quality epitomised in their leader Top Dollar. There are many comic moments in the film, some of which are histerically funny, but at the same time also sinister. Much of the 'comedy' comes from Eric and his very theatrical appearance, stance and movement, while at the same time being dark and gothic.
I hope you all enjoy this site dedicted to one of my favourite movies, and that you get as much out of it as I have.
