The Crow...

I was sitting here this morning going through all the computer "crap" I do when I started thing about this movie. I've seen so many movies over my lifetime, that many I don't even remember. However, there are a precious few that have really stuck in my head... Hellraiser, The Shining, and Shawshank Redemption (non horror) to name a few. These movies are my favorites. The Crow is one of those movies that was so original and so well made that it is one of the best horror movies ever made IMO. It was probably written with Edgar Allen Poe in mind because of the importance of the crow. Brandon Lee (Bruce Lee's son) had a short career because of his untimely death, but he brings a powerfull performance to this role. Revenge is an interesting subject and makes us really pull for his character. Righting a wrong and making those involved pay for their evil deeds pulls the viewer in and helps us "cheer" him on. I love this movie and I highly recommend taking the time to rent it and enjoy one of the finest horror movies ever made. I found this clip on You Tube and thought it really gives you a sense of what the movie is about. Enjoy!
