What did you see this weekend? I went to The Witch again and it was just as good as I remembered from Tiff.

But let's go from the great to the terrible. When was the last time you chanced upon something truly awful? I ask this because last night, bone tired, and flipping channels I came across The Crow: City of Angels (1996) in its opening scene. I had never seen it and for a minute I mistook it for The Crow: Salvation (2000) which I have also never seen and thought to myself  'Self, hey, watch a few minutes since Kiki Dunst is in this' About 20 minutes later, I turned it off, jaw long since acclimated to floor. Every single scene was worst than the last. It was truly incompetent and

The HeyUGuys Instant Watching Guide 23rd September 2013

  • HeyUGuys
It’s oh so quiet….Not much to report on this week really. Things will probably kick up a gear as the dark nights draw in further and the kids get a week off at some point in October.

About the best thing I could write about at the moment really is how good is the final season of Breaking Bad?!? So so very good and if you aren’t watching it then all of it is on Netflix for you to absorb. Only two episodes left now and man it is looking like it’s going to go out on a massively epic and unexpected note. If they stick the landing this will be one of the best crime saga’s of all time standing alongside The Wire and The Sopranos.

Anyway, here’s what else is playing…

Starring Brandon Lee, Rochelle Davis, Ernie Hudson, Michael Wincott, Bai Ling, Sofia Shinas, Anna Levine, David Patrick Kelly, Laurence Mason, Michael Massee and Angel David.

Based upon James O'Barr's cult underground series, originally published by Caliber Comics in 1989, The Crow stars Brandon Lee as Eric Draven, a musician brought back from the dead to avenge his and his fiancée's murder at the hands of a gang of local thugs.

Tragically, The Crow would prove to be Lee's final movie, the actor dying after sustaining an accidental gunshot wound on set during the filming of a stunt sequence. More than a year after Lee's death, The Crow arrived in cinemas and was a world-wide box office success, pulling

Evil Dead's Jane Levy Signs On For In A Dark Place

When she isn't making us laugh in her starring role on ABC's Suburgatory, Jane Levy's been adding to her feature credits, with a lead role in last year's Fun Size and a part in the greatly anticipated horror Evil Dead. It looks like scary may be a recurring theme for the actor, as she has another feature lined up, which sounds pretty scary - particularly for those of us who find porcelain dolls to be especially creepy. THR reports that Levy is set to star in Gold Circle's In a Dark Place, which will be directed by Bharat Nalluri (The Crow: Salvation, Miss Pettigrew Lives for a Day). The thriller follows a young American woman who goes to England to serve as the governess to a porcelain doll, which is treated like a real son to the family that owns it. The governess is charged with looking after the

The Crow remake prepares to take flight

Earlier this week Relativity Media and The Weinstein Company issued a press release to announce that they'd reached an out-of-court settlement over the legal dispute concerning the rights to The Crow and now comes word that the two studios are pushing on with their plans to reboot the series. According to Deadline, scriptwriter Jesse Wigutow (It Runs in the Family) has signed on to tackle the screenplay, while Variety are also reporting that F. Javier Gutiérrez (Before the Fall) will handle directing duties.

Based upon James O'Barr's underground comic book series, The Crow first came to the screen in 1994 under director Alex Proyas, with the film becoming notable for the accidental death of star Brandon Lee on set. Following the success of the first movie, The Crow then spawned three sequels - The Crow: City of Angels (with Vincent Pérez), The Crow: Salvation (with Eric Mabius) and The Crow: Wicked Prayer

Bradley Cooper As The Crow?

Filed under: Movie News

Blond, hot body Bradley Cooper as a Goth action hero? We can't quite picture it, yet, but the 'Limitless' star is in talks to headline a new version of 'The Crow.'

Variety reports that Cooper is in "early negotiations" for the lead role with Relativity Media. He recently flew to Spain to meet with director Juan Carlo Fresnadillo ('28 Days Later'), who was impressed with Cooper's take on the character.

Brandon Lee starred in the first 1994 Crow film as a musician who returns from the grave to avenge his own murder; the son of Bruce Lee tragically died in an on-set accident. He was followed by Vincent Perez in 'The Crow: City of Angels,' then Eric Mabius in 'The Crow: Salvation.'

It's not clear if Fresnadillo will be using the script Goth rocker Nick Cave wrote when director Stephen Norrington was attached.

Bradley Cooper in talks to star in 'The Crow' remake

  • Pop2it
Hm... we're not sure how fans of the original film are going to feel about this casting.

"The Hangover" star Bradley Cooper is in negotiations to star in the remake of "The Crow," EW reports. Previously, Mark Wahlberg was in consideration for the part, but talks fell through.

The 1994 film followed a man Eric Draven (Brandon Lee) brutally murdered who comes back to life as an undead avenger of his and his fiancée's murder. The cult hit was adapted from the '80s comic books by James O'Barr. The film's star Brandon Lee died during production when a prop gun misfired.

The Crow flies again with 28 Weeks Later director

Juan Fresnadillo to remake cult 90s action-horror film about a rock star who rises from the dead to avenge his own murder

The 1994 gothic action shoot-em-up The Crow is the latest film to be considered worthy of a reboot, as it was announced that 28 Weeks Later director Juan Fresnadillo will take the reins for a forthcoming remake.

The original Crow, based on a comic book by James O'Barr, featured Brandon Lee as a musician called Eric Draven, who rises from the dead to avenge his own murder, and that of his fiancee. The film became notorious when Lee died on set after a prop gun malfunctioned.

The Crow became a cult hit, making $50m at the Us box office, and spawned three sequels, The Crow: City of Angels, The Crow: Salvation, and The Crow: Wicked Prayer, as well as a TV series starring Mark Dacascos.

'28 Weeks Later' Director To Resurrect 'The Crow'

Eric Draven lives again.

"The Crow" has been a franchise that Hollywood has inexplicably rendered an utter and colossal failure. The original 1994 film starring the late, great Brandon Lee and directed by Alex Proyas was a genre masterpiece; a dark gothic fairy tale of tragic romance and violent revenge, with Lee as a slain musician brought back to life one year after he and his fiance are murdered to "put the wrong things right."

Lee was an A-list movie star in the making; imagine what his career -- and life -- might have been today had he survived the horrible on-set accident that took his life at age 28.

Maybe it's that so-called "Crow Curse" that has kept the franchise itself from taking flight. The 1996 sequel, "The Crow: City of Angels," was an incoherent mess (though it looked pretty), and the less said about the direct-to-video sequels, "The Crow: Salvation" (2000) and

Horror at the Oscars Part 2: This Time It's Personal

Horror fanatics are still buzzing like chainsaws over the Academy Awards’ genre montage. Anywhere there could be a conversation about it online, there was one. Many were upset over the Twilight ‘tweens’ participation, as if their mere presence sent a message about the state of scary in Hollyweird, USA.

A few seemed happy, though, to just get a glimpse of their beloved Evil Dead and Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2 if only for a few seconds. But many called the selections generic and thoughtless, demanding the likes of Demons and TerrorVision instead (well, maybe not TerrorVision; that was just me).

How about Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer? Re-Animator? It’s Alive? Tombs of the Blind Dead? Coffin Joe? No list is perfect, but with a bit more care and a phone call to any one of us, the Oscars could have elevated that section into a real scream. Or maybe they

Horror at the Oscars Part 1: The Quickening

It’s that time of year again, kids. Dread Central’s 2010 Horror at the Oscars coverage. Horror was indeed present this year and in black-tie. While Roger Corman and Lauren Bacall were honored a few months back at the Governor’s Award Ceremony, it was an unexpected delight to see Corman, recipient of the lifetime achievement Oscar, enjoy a standing ovation on national television.

I was, however, very disappointed that neither of them were allowed to speak. Roger Corman’s contributions to modern cinema are too vast for him to just stand up and wave. James Cameron was one of many Corman acolytes present, and his nomination speaks to Corman’s tremendous legacy. On the Terminator DVD Cameron mentions, "I trained at the Roger Corman Film School.” Jonathan Demme, Martin Scorsese, and Francis Ford Coppola, among many others, were also former students.

The terror continued with a spoof of Paranormal Activity

Director Stephen Norrington Updates The Crow

Director Stephen Norrington has a hit-and-miss record when it comes to comic book movie adaptations. His Blade was praised by comic book fans and performed well enough at the box office to spawn two theatrical sequels and a short-lived TV series. However, The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen failed to cover its budget at the domestic box office and was almost universally panned by critics.

When it was first announced that a new The Crow movie was in the works back in December 2008, Norrington, who is writing the script as well as directing, said that his intention is to make a more "realistic, hard-edged, and mysterious" movie than director Alex Proyas' "gloriously gothic and stylized" 1994 original. Not much has been heard about The Crow since then, but Norrington recently updated the status of the movie in a brief interview with Mania. The producer and visual effects people are crunching numbers.
