An over-acting cast do their best to out-weird each other in this lame addition to the tired horror franchise. The lead offender is Terminator 2's Edward Furlong who mistakes crazy eyes for tortured emotion. He stars as a murdered ex-con who returns from the dead to avenge his sweetheart's ritualistic slaying. Furlong's unconvincing performance is as inept as the overall feature, but it pales in comparison with the laughable theatricality of David Boreanaz (Angel, Bones) and Tara Reid - miscast here as the Satanist lovers that the resurrected Furlong targets. Cartoonish fight sequences and ludicrous dialogue compound the air of silliness, and the plotting is so weak and directionless, you'd imagine events had been made up as they went along.

Plot Summary

Fantasy horror based on the comic-book series, starring Edward Furlong as Jimmy Cuervo, an ex-con who is slain along with his girlfriend in a ritualistic killing just as he plans to leave town and start a new life. Raised from the dead by the mysterious Crow, Jimmy embarks on a quest for revenge.
