'Crow Story': Tells tale of the tragic comic book movie

By Rob M. Worley     December 13, 2003


"The Crow" is the ultimate cult movie, with a dedicated worldwide following, and two sequels, plus a fourth currently in production. Now, ten years after the original film's release, the full story of this seemingly cursed production can finally be told...

In "The Crow's" last days of filming, its star Brandon Lee (son of Bruce Lee) was killed in a strange on-set accident, while filming his character's death scene. Bridget Baiss describes the chain of events which led from O'Barr's creation of the graphic novel, up to this fateful day, and beyond, to the film's final, triumphant release.

This is the definitive account of "The Crow's" production and the phenomenon it became, packed with scores of interviews with the film's cast and crew.

"The Crow" is a true worldwide cult, spanning the classic graphic novel (also published by Titan), novels, three hit movies and a TV series.

2004 also sees the release of the fourth movie, "The Crow: Wicked Prayer," starring David Boreanaz ("Angel"), Edward Furlong ("Terminator 2") and Dennis Hopper.

Through vivid personal accounts, Baiss brings to light the inspired and often revolutionary filmmaking techniques that brought this darkly stylish film to the big screen.

The book goes on sale in the UK January 23rd, 2004 from Titan Books (£14.99 - Paperback).
