This second sequel to THE CROW (1994), directed by British newcomer Bharat Nalluri (KILLING TIME) from a script by X-Files writer Chip Johannesson, was scheduled for theatrical release but eventually debuted on video. Framed for the brutal rape and murder of his girlfriend, Lauren (Jodi Lynn O'Keefe), Alex Corvis (Eric Mabius) goes to the electric chair proclaiming his innocence and insisting that a man with mysterious scars on his arm is responsible. The crow, a spirit guide that mediates between the realms of the living and the dead, revives Alex, whose face is horribly disfigured by burns he sustained during his electrocution (which was made more gruesome when lightning struck the prison), so he can track down the killers and exact some measure of revenge. As he hunts down and kills the quartet of corrupt police officers — Vincent Erlich (Dale Midkiff), Phillip Dutton (Bill Mondy), Stan Robbers (Walt Goggins) and Martin Toomey (Tim DeKay) — responsible for Lauren's death, Alex slowly wins the trust of Lauren's grieving sister, Erin (Kirsten Dunst). Essentially a violent revenge thriller with a supernatural twist, this film lacks the doomed romanticism that made THE CROW so compelling. The soundtrack features songs by Kid Rock, Glen Danzig, Rob Zombie, Hole and others. leave a comment
