The Crow: City of Angels [1996]

It is said that when a man dies wrongfully, a crow may bring him back to life to seek vengeance upon his killer.

Against the macabre backdrop of the traditional Day of the Dead celebration, "The Crow: City of Angels" tells a new chapter in the gothic urban mythology of Love transcending Death. Creating an all-new incarnation of the brooding dark hero - a victim of urban violence returned to the living to exact personal justice - Vincent Perez portrays Ashe, the young man who returns from the night of his own horrific murder with the mysterious powers of the Crow.

He returns to seek out and destroy the most savage criminals in a surrealistic city of preponderant evil. As he sets out on his fateful mission, Ashe becomes drawn to Sarah, someone with whom he seems to share psychic and emotional bonds.

Mia Kirshner plays Sarah, the young woman who as a teenager first encountered the Crow and cannot escape this connection with her past. Legendary punk rocker Iggy Pop also stars as one of the cold-blooded killers responsible for Ashe's brutal death.

"One crow, sorrow.
 Two crows, joy.
 Three crows, a letter!
 Four crows, a boy.
 Five crows, silver.
 Six crows, gold!
 Seven crows, a secret never to be told."

"Life is just a dream on the way to death."

"Do you know what they call a gathering of crows? A murder. A murder of crows. Think about it."

"I believe there's a place where the restless souls wander. Burdened by the weight of their own sadness, they wait for a chance to set the wrong things right. Only then can they be reunited with the ones they love. Sometimes, a crow shows them the way. Because sometimes, love is stronger than death."

"I'm all your nightmares rolled into one!"
