THE CROW Blu-Ray in October

Lionsgate debuts Miramax’s cult-classic, supernatural thriller The Crow on Blu-ray Disc for the first time this October. Directed by Alex Proyas (Dark City), the film, based on the comic book series and comic strip by James O’Barr, with a screenplay by David J. Schow and John Shirley, stars Brandon Lee (Rapid Fire) in his final performance.

Called “A dark, lurid revenge fantasy,” (The New York Times), the film also features a stellar soundtrack including The Cure, Stone Temple Pilots, Rage Against the Machine and more. The high definition debut of The Crow hosts an audio commentary with producer Jeff Most and screenwriter John Shirley, a behind-the-scenes featurette, extended/deleted scenes plus storyboards and photo galleries.

A poetic guitarist Eric Draven (Lee) is brought back to life by a crow a year after he and his fiancée are murdered on the eve of their wedding. The crow guides him through the land of the living, and leads him to his despicable killers. One by one, Eric gives these thugs a taste of their own medicine. However their leader Top-Dollar (Michael Wincott, The Diving Bell and the Butterfly), a world-class crime lord, will soon learn the legend of the crow and the secret to the vigilante’s invincibility.

Special features for The Crow will include:
Audio commentary with producer Jeff Most and screenwriter John Shirley.
Behind-the-Scenes Featurette
Extended/Deleted Scenes
Photo Galleries
Pricing: Blu-ray Disc – $19.99
