The Crow Comic book movies are often painted with a broad brush as being almost exclusively part of the summer blockbuster season, but there is one hero in particular who is far more at home in the waning days of October: The Crow.
Though the movie was a May release when it first came out back in 1994, the dark tale of post-mortem vengeance is a perfect one to watch unfold on Halloween – and not just because it happens to be set on Devil’s Night. While the autumn holiday is typically celebrated with a hefty dose of horror movie scares, Alex Proyas’ adaptation of James O'Barr’s graphic novel series takes all of those thrills and deftly mixes them into a deep story that is lined with great characters and awesome action (not to mention a behind-the-scenes story filled with tragedy and mystery). You may have to resist the urge to go screaming into the night causing chaos and screaming "Fire it up!" loudly and often, but ultimately it’s all just about getting into the Halloween spirit.
