The film's theatrical release in 1993 contained Alicia Silverstone's original character name Darian. Movie trailers, VHS and laserdisc versions also kept the name Darian. DVD and cable television versions were later dubbed and credited as Adrian. In the past, early cable television aired the name Darian. See more »

Alternating between gothic horror and hilarious camp, "The Crush" is one of the great cult films. Writer/Director Alan Shapiro's young discovery, Alicia Silverstone, delivers her greatest role to date -- no kidding. This is pure fun entertainment, I highly recommend renting it. I will see anything writer/director Alan Shapiro makes.
