Reimaging The Crow – ‘The Crow: Days of Sodom’ Fan Film
Whilst we await for the resurrections of The Crow franchise, another figure emerges from the grave, in the form of an epic fan film that looks to be an epic addition to this dark tale of revenge.
The dark supernatural film The Crow (1994) found favor with audience members to develop a cult following over time. Starring Brandon Lee as Eric Draven, a poetic musician brought back from the dead to avenge his and his fiancé’s violent murders, the story served as an adaptation of the graphic novel by James O’Barr. An accident on set claimed Lee’s life, but not before he delivered a performance that many have hailed as “haunting.” The film was created on an estimated budget of $23 million, earned slightly over $50 million worldwide, and had a run time of 1 hour 42 minutes. Michael Wincott also starred as Top Dollar, along with Ernie Hudson as Officer Albrech, Rochelle Davis as Sarah, and Sofia Shinas as Shelly. Alex Proyas directed this full-length motion picture.
According to Deadline and The Prague Reporter, the highly anticipated reboot of The Crow starring Bill Skarsgard of IT (2017) and Danny Huston of 30 Days of Night (2007) recently wrapped production. Zach Baylin of King Richard (2021) penned the screenplay, while Rupert Sanders of Snow White and the Huntsman (2012) as well as Ghost in the Shell (2017) directed the film.
In addition to the reboot, a fan made tribute is presently under development. Written by Cody Faulk and Jason Farrell, The Crow: Days of Sodom, is expected to contain some of the same elements as the original with a crow serving as the conduit that conveys wronged souls between the natural and spiritual worlds. From there, the storyline veers and follows the experiences of Detective Thorn Gray, rather than Eric Draven. Although Gray’s mission is that of vengeance in a city plagued by corruption and decay, he does not know why he has been chosen. Rather, the mysterious crow guides him on his journey.
When asked about the project, Faulk stated, “The Crow: Days of Sodom is going to be explosive hell ride through love, grief, and depravity in a city in collapse.” It is set to release in 2024.
Faulk is best known for “Voorhees” – A Friday the 13th Fan Film (2020), which acquired 3.1 million views on YouTube since its release and opened the door to other projects from this creator. “Voorhees” followed a crew of thieves as they sought seclusion after carrying out a major heist. Unfortunately for the crew, they chose Camp Crystal Lake as their hideaway and soon learned they were not alone.
