Needless Things Podcast 145 – The Crow Needless Commentary

February 2nd, 2017

Part of an ongoing series – the Needless Things Irregulars gather in the Phantom Zone to provide their own unique commentary on classic genre films!

Released on May 13th, 1994, Alex Proyas's The Crow was the graphic, edgy comic book movie that fans had been wanting since 1989's Batman. The trendsetting soundtrack helped the movie launch a new era of Goth culture while the dark themes of the movie inspired countless teens to don black and start acting all swoopy and dramatic.

Additionally, the tragic on-set death of promising actor Brandon Lee will forever mar this singular film, but at the same time adds an unmatchable gravitas and heaviness.

Listen in as Phantom Troublemaker, Rad Ranger, Ryan Cadaver, and special guest Mike Gordon gather in the Phantom Zone to offer up their thoughts on this 1994 cult classic!
