Greed is for amateurs. Disorder, chaos, anarchy: now that’s fun! -Top Dollar

The Crow is a simple story of a gang that terrorizes the local tenants for payment on devil’s night. When they choose the wrong life to take after throwing Eric Draven out of his apartment window. His spirit still flies free. One year later he returns in the form of a crow to avenge his death and his girlfriends. Filled with blood, breathtaking scenes, fantastic story telling and characters to be remembered forever, The Crow is one that is a must see for any film fan.

I thought The Crow would be a fitting choice for the Devil’s Night pick for shocktober. Although not very shocking, it does include: rape, murder, vengeance, drug abuse, racism, Detroit, and the all important rock and roll. The Crow is easily one of my all-time favorite comic book adaptations. The story that happened while it was finishing up the production is the shocking part. Brandon Lee you are missed.
