'The Crow' May Have Been Cursed — And Not Just Because Of Brandon Lee's Death

1994's The Crow, a fantasy-action film based on a comic book of the same name, is famous for causing Brandon Lee's death. The tragic accident and subsequent death of Bruce Lee's son is one of many dark stories about The Crow that have led people to believe that the film was cursed

Many of The Crow behind-the-scenes stories add detail to a larger story about a film that seemed to be doomed from the start. Not only was it one of the few film sets that killed people, but so many members of the crew were injured that it seems like an unseen force was at work during the filming. Aside from the horrific demise of the film’s lead actor, there was also a strange number of injuries and a destructive hurricane that destroyed much of the set.

Was The Crow really cursed? Despite it's strong cult following, the stories from its initial filming are darkly tainted, and all attempts to reboot the franchise make the curse seem believable. It’s possible that the failure to put a new version of the film into production stems from the death of Brandon Lee sticking in producers' minds, but it also just might be the nasty curse of The Crow.
