City Screen is bringing Brandon Lee back from the other side as the finale to York Goth Festival, DV8Fest. Lee’s final movie ‘The Crow’ (18) is to screen on Monday, July 25 at 8:45pm. Based on the graphic novel by James O’Barr, this fantasy follows Eric Draven, a rock musician who is murdered along with his fiancée Shelly (Sofia Shinas) by a group of marauding thugs who terrorize the decaying city in which they live.
One year to the day after his death (which happens to be Devil’s Night), a mystical crow appears at Eric’s grave. Eric rises from the dead and, with the bird as his guide, goes on a mission to avenge himself against Top Dollar (Michael Wincott), the leader of the gang who killed him.
There’s an ace soundtrack from The Cure, Jesus and Mary Chain, Rage Against The Machine and more.
The star of The Crow, Brandon Lee, was killed while filming a scene in which he was shot with a shell from an improperly cleaned gun that was supposed to be loaded with blanks. Like his father, martial arts superstar Bruce Lee, Brandon was fated to have his greatest popular success after his premature death.
