“Devil’s Night is upon us again.”
The Rio Theatre‘s series of Halloween classics continues with a “Devil’s Night” screening of the stylish, soulful and ultimately haunting, supernaturally romantic revenge fantasy THE CROW – featuring a chilling turn from the late Brandon Lee – on Saturday, October 30.
The night before his wedding, musician Eric Draven (Lee) and his fiancée are brutally murdered by members of a violent inner-city gang. On the anniversary of their death, Eric rises from the grave and assumes the gothic mantle of the Crow, a supernatural avenger. Tracking down the thugs responsible for the crimes and mercilessly murdering them, Eric eventually confronts head gangster Top Dollar (Michael Wincott) to complete his macabre mission.
“Despite the visionary brilliance and hip brutality, THE CROW — whose closing dedication reads, ‘For Brandon and Eliza’ — is saying that love never dies. We’ve heard that before. It’s Lee, with probing intelligence and passionate heart, who moves us to believe it.” (Rolling Stone)
“Filled with style and dark, lurid energy, THE CROW is an action-packed visual feast that also has a soul in the performance of the late Brandon Lee.” (Rotten Tomatoes)
