* From ''Film/TheCrow'': Eric learns all that Shelly went through before she died - a 20 hour ordeal - by laying his hands over Albrecht's head and eyes ('seeing' through his eyes how much Shelly suffered, and what's more, feeling it as well. At the film's climax, Eric finishes off Top Dollar, the BigBad, by putting his hands on the villain's head and sharing the same experience with him. While Eric is able to withstand the pain, Top Dollar is not.
