** After the death of Creator/BrandonLee in the movie, James O'Barr said in an interview that writing the comic had been a vicious, self-destructive process and not at all cathartic, and that, combined with Brandon's death during shooting the film, made him "wish I had never made the goddamned thing," and wouldn't be able to come to terms with it until much later

* DevelopmentHell: A complete reboot has been in the works since 2008, and passed between studios, actors, directors and even distributors. Several times it's gotten to the point of a filming start date being announced before someone along the chain drops out. Current status: On, with Sony distributing, Corin Hardy directing and apparently Jason Momoa starring.

** According to screenwriter David J. Schow, who hung out with Brandon Lee before and during filming, Brandon thought Sir Peter Ustinov was a perfect fit to play Gideon, the sleazy pawnbroker (an idea he got after watching ''Film/{{Spartacus}}'' late one night).

* OrphanedReference:
** The reason Eric wears tape on his body is because of a deleted scene where Funboy attacks him with a razor. The Skull Cowboy (who ended up being cut from the film) later explained that draining the morphine from Darla weakened his healing factor.
** Skank is later seen with a bandage on his arm and limping. This is the result of a deleted scene where two kids rob the store he went to get smokes and road beers and shot him in the arm and leg.

* HeReallyCanAct: Brandon Lee, holy shit. Most of his movies prior to this play him as a skilled martial artist, yet with a laid back comedic personality. ''The Crow'', on the other hand, shows him PlayingAgainstType as the deeply hurt and revenge-driven Eric Dravem and not only is it successful, '''it is scary'''. The fact that he died in the making of this movie makes his performance more haunting.

* OldShame: James O'Barr has said that he regrets writing the comic now, both due to what he now feels is a glorification of revenge, as well as the death of Creator/BrandonLee due to the movie adaption.
