Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_1'); })The Crow, released in 1994, is a Cult Classic adapting James O'Barr's comic book of the same name for the silver screen. David J. Schow and John Shirley wrote the screenplay, Alex Proyas directed, and Brandon Lee (son of Bruce Lee) starred in what would be his final role.A year after a group of gang-bangers kill him and his fiancée on their wedding night, Eric Draven (Lee) rises from his grave to extract revenge. Now invulnerable and super-powered, he hunts down and slaughters his murderers with the aided of a crow that serves as his Magical Guide. Along the way, he befriends a local beat cop, Albrecht (Ernie Hudson), and reconnects with a troubled local teen, Sarah (Rochelle Davis), forcing him to remember that there was more to life than hatred.While the film is notable for its stylish action, gothic art direction and energetic industrial soundtrack, it's destined to be forever overshadowed by the tragic accidental on-set death of Brandon Lee by a failed special effect.Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_2'); })The film proved to be a hit and was followed by a sequel, The Crow: City of Angels, two spin-off films, The Crow: Salvation and The Crow: Wicked Prayer, and a TV series The Crow: Stairway to Heaven that returns Eric Draven to life (with a new actor) to serve as protagonist.

Abnormal Ammo: Eric Draven blows up Gideon's pawnshop by spilling gasoline all through it and firing a blast from a shotgun he'd stuffed with dozens of pawned/stolen rings (although it did have a normal charge in it as well).

comment
Adapted Out: The Skull Cowboy. Scenes with him were filmed, but they ended up on the cutting room floor. Tom-Tom, another member of the gang, was omitted and his role transferred to Skank, who was a minor thug in the comic.

Top Dollar was changed from just being a low-level drug dealer to being a twisted crime overlord with the gang as his hit squad and Myca and Grange backing him up.
