The Crow Creator James O’Barr Recalls The Sequel That Never Came To Be

From City of Angels to Stairway to Heaven, Alex Proyas’ cult horror flick The Crow inspired a smattering of sequels across screens big and small.

None of them were particularly memorable, of course, as they failed to capture the look and feel of their predecessor – not to mention the fact that the late Brandon Lee left some pretty big boots to fill. But that didn’t stem the tide, and in 2005, director Lance Mungia whipped together The Crow: Wicked Prayer, which is arguably the worst sequel of the lot.

But had things panned out differently, and Miramax green-lit James O’Barr’s original pitch, film fans may well have received a follow-up to The Crow that was worthy of the 1994 classic. As O’Barr tells Screen Geek, the proposed sequel would’ve taken things in a “completely different direction.”

My intention was to take it to a completely different direction.

I'm a Massive Wimp, So This Is How I Decide If I Can Watch a Movie or Not

  • BuzzSugar
I am a huge wimp when it comes to scary or gruesome films and TV shows. In particular, I hate anything involving blades on flesh (stabbings in particular). Obviously it's easy enough to avoid straight-up horror films, but the extent of my fear (which could well be very mild pungophobia) means a lot of other random stuff is off limits, too. For example, while everyone else was raving about 13 Reasons Why earlier this year, I was giving it a very wide berth because I knew I'd have a panic attack if I was made to watch one pivotal scene. My entire life I avoided the seemingly innocuous City of Angels because a friend told me that, in one scene, Nicolas Cage accidentally chops his finger off. Truth is, much of my phobia (if that's what it is) is in my head. I can cope with some fantasy violence and the

Ryan Gosling's Love Letters to Los Angeles

Ryan Gosling's Love Letters to Los Angeles
Ryan Gosling's most frequent co-star isn't Emma Stone. It's Los Angeles.

Over the past 10 years, Gosling has starred in seven movies where Los Angeles not only serves as the setting, but as a character. And he's the first to admit that the sunny, messy, dynamic sprawl is one of the keys to his storytelling.

"'L.A. worships everything and values nothing.' That was something my lady said to me one day, and I thought it was so funny I asked her if I could put it in the movie," Gosling told Et's Denny Directo during the Santa Barbara International Film Festival, where he was promoting 2016's La La Land. (The lady in question, of course, is Gosling's longtime partner Eva Mendes, although this being L.A., we do love the noirish connotations of him not identifying her by name.) "She was kidding, but it's a funny thing to say... I loved when

'Blade Runner 2049' Review: Sequel to Sci-Fi Landmark Is an Instant Classic
So what I can tell you about Blade Runner 2049 without having the spoiler police on my ass? Elvis is in it; ditto Sinatra. (I won't say how for fear of reprisals.) I can reveal that the sequel runs 2 hours and 43 minutes – that's 45 minutes longer than the 1982 original, based on Philip K. Dick's Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? For Blade Runner junkies like myself, who've mainlined five different versions of Ridley Scott's now iconic sci-fi film noir – from the release print to the Director's Cut and the

Lost in L.A.: This Menendez Brothers Murder Map Will Help You Put the Crazy, Sprawling Story Into Perspective

Lost in L.A.: This Menendez Brothers Murder Map Will Help You Put the Crazy, Sprawling Story Into Perspective
Dominating what most people think of when they think "Southern California," Los Angeles County is a humongous place, comprising more than 4,700 square miles, dozens of cities—including its sprawling namesake—and countless neighborhoods. Five years before O.J. Simpson sent polarizing shockwaves throughout the city of L.A., the former football hero's murder trial showing just how the City of Angels experience differed for people depending on their race, background and income, not to mention their zip code, Erik and Lyle Menendez committed a shocking crime that turned all eyes toward the one of the region's most privileged enclaves. But murdering their parents in one of the...

Carrie Coon May Be Midwestern, but ‘Fargo’s’ Gloria Burgle Was One of Her Greatest Challenges Yet

Carrie Coon May Be Midwestern, but ‘Fargo’s’ Gloria Burgle Was One of Her Greatest Challenges Yet
Fargo” is more than a place; it’s a Midwest state of mind. Mention as much to Carrie Coon, a Midwesterner from the eastern end of the region (Ohio) now living in its heart (Illinois), and she’ll rattle off an impressive list of accurate ideological descriptors.

“The ethos of that place,” she said in a recent interview with IndieWire. “That particular brand of stoicism and emotional restraint; the belief that bad things won’t happen to good people and that you have some control; this idea that we can make meanings in our lives, even though the reality is that we have very little control over anything.”

All of these things are built into “Fargo,” but there’s one other characteristic that stands out to Coon above all the rest.

Review: Lucifer: the Complete Second Season

  • Comicmix
Interestingly, Fox licensed DC Comics’ interpretation of Lucifer, made remarkable first in the Sandman series and then in his own six year eponymous ongoing series. The First of the Fallen, he has abandoned his role as ruler of Hell and has come to Earth to run a piano bar, which is where the ongoing series opened. The series explored the themes of free will and individual willpower while challenging the “tyranny of predestination”. Under writer Mike Carey, it was a moody and fascinating study of humanity.

The network series, which debuted as a midseason replacement in spring 2016, ignored all of the trappings and set him up as a police consultant who saw a shrink, and was annoyed by his brother. Somehow, it clicked with audiences and came back for a full eighteen episode run. Now, Warner Home Entertainment has released Lucifer: The Complete Second Season in separate Blu-ray and DVD packages.
