[[caption-width-right:213:"Someone owes me two lifetimes and a set of perfect blue eyes."]]

The fourth film in [[Franchise/TheCrow the Crow franchise]], loosely based on Norman Partridge's tie-in novel of the same name.

Jimmy Cuervo (EdwardFurlong) is a down on his luck ex-convict in love with Lily Ignites the Dawn (Emmanuelle Chriqui), the beautiful daughter of the head priest of the neighboring Raven Aztec tribe. Unfortunately, their romance is cut short when Luc Crash (David Boreanaz), a former prison buddy of Jimmy's, murders them under the instruction of his shaman girlfriend Lola Byrne (Tara Reid) for a ritual that will turn Luc into Satan. [[YouShouldKnowThisAlready Jimmy is resurrected by the title bird]] to exact his RoaringRampageOfRevenge and stop Luc before he can bring about the end of the world.

This film is generally regarded to be the worst in the franchise; Norman Partridge even refused to let Miramax send him a DVD. However, to some it manages to be ridiculous enough to loop back into SoBadItsGood territory.

----
!!This film contains examples of the following tropes:

* AdaptationExpansion: In the original novel, the only villains were the characters analogous to Luc and Lola. The movie gives them a gang.
* BlondesAreEvil: Lola, as played by Tara Reid
* BloodlessCarnage: War shoots most of the attendees at the Ravenfest beneath a sheet, but we see no blood on it until the next scene, and even then it's sparse.
* CasualDangerDialogue: War and Jimmy halt their own battle and end up taking refuge together against the gunfire of a mob led by Lily's father. While they're hiding, War tries to shoot Jimmy, only to find he's out of bullets, leading to this exchange:
-->'''Jimmy:''' You need to keep better track of your ammo.
-->'''War:''' It's been a long night.
* ClearMyName: Upon finding her body, Lily's brother Tanner assumes Jimmy killed her and tries to arrest him. Jimmy sets him straight via his telepathy. Lily's father, however, takes a little more convincing, see HeelFaithTurn below.
* ContrivedCoincidence: The man who killed Luc's father just happens to be [[spoiler: the father of the man Jimmy killed]]
* CoolCar: Each of the Four Horsemen has one. Jimmy acquires a hearse about halfway through the movie.
* CoversAlwaysLie: The summary on the back of the DVD box calls the Four Horsemen "a Satanic biker gang," but they have cars, not motorcycles.
* CreatorCameo: Executive producer and CEO of FUBU Daymond John as Proud Foot Joe the virgin hearse driver.
* CreatorKiller: This is the first and only movie ever produced by Fubu Films.
* CrucifiedHeroShot: Luc literally hangs Jimmy off a cross near the film's climax
* DisproportionateRetribution: Flashbacks indicate a man tried unsuccessfully to sexually assault Lily at the annual Ravenfest. Because Jimmy beat him ''to death.''
* EyeScream: Lola carves out Lily's eyes with a knife.
* ForHalloweenIAmGoingAsMyself: Jimmy is given his Crow ensemble by Lily before they are murdered as a costume to wear to Ravenfest. Being that once he comes back he actually is the Crow, him showing up at Ravenfest qualifies as this.
* FranchiseKiller: Effectively put an end to this incarnation of the Crow series, as the next proposed film is a reboot.
* HealingHands: Jimmy has these in addition to the standard Crow HealingFactor
* HeelFaithTurn: Lily's father believes Jimmy killed her and wants him dead, until he sees the flaming crow ZorroMark and realizes Jimmy's been chosen by God.
* HorsemenOfTheApocalypse: Luc is "Death" in a gang nicknamed after the Four Horsemen.
* ImprobableWeaponUser: Jimmy kills one man with a bug zapper and another with a baseball bat
* InfantImmortality: A small boy is the only person Jimmy manages to save at Ravenfest
* InjunCountry / {{Mayincatec}}: More like Injunatec. The Raven Tribe call themselves Aztecs but the rest of the characters call them Indians and/or Native Americans and none seem to object.
* InNameOnly: A white man and his Native American girlfriend are killed at a trading post for a ritual involving her eyes and he comes back by exiting a fridge. These are the only things the film has in common with the book it is "based on," including character names.
* LargeHam: Once he becomes "Satan," David Boreanaz loses all sense of seriousness or subtlety.
** Dennis Hopper any time he's on screen
* MeaningfulName: Jimmy Cuervo, [[IncrediblyLamePun Luc Crash and Lola Byrne]], arguably Lily Ignites the Dawn
* NoNameGiven: The other three Horsemen are only known by War, Pestilence, and Famine
* NotSoDifferent: Luc tries to appeal to Jimmy that he should join the Horsemen because he too is trying to "put wrong things right."
* OccultBlueEyes: Lily's, after Lola steals them. They give her the power to see the future and apparently tell if someone is a virgin.
* OpeningScroll: The film begins with a text screen filling the viewer in on the situation with the Raven Aztecs closing mines to build their casino, even though it's tangentially related to the plot at best ''and'' explained in dialogue later by Luc.
* OurAngelsAreDifferent: It appears in this story the Crow is one, despite the very nature of the franchise meaning he does some rather un-angel-like things.
* PoliceAreUseless: Tanner arrives at a crime scene too late to stop the bad guys, brings a mob to help Jimmy in the final conflict without telling them he's the Crow, and lets Luc and Lola escape after she confesses to cutting Lily's eyes out
* PapaWolf: Lily's father is probably as determined to get revenge for his daughter's death as Jimmy is. Unfortunately he chases the wrong party.
* PreMortemOneLiner: "Truth is, belief's not required."
* PrettyFlyForAWhiteGuy: Dennis Hopper as El Nino the jive-talking pimp/Satanist priest
* TheRez: The Raven Aztecs live on a political reservation that is in transition to a casino reservation.
* ShoutOut: We get a flashback to a dance themed [[Film/BackToTheFuture Enchantment Under the Sea]]
* SpitefulSpit: Jimmy does one at Pestilence's corpse, and another later right in Luc's face
* StockFootage: Most of the shots of the bird are taken from [[Film/TheCrowSalvation the third film.]]
* TemptingFate: "It's a great day to be alive, ain't it?!"
** "Nobody move, we're doing this dead or alive."
* UnflinchingWalk: Jimmy does one after he blows up his trailer
* UnholyMatrimony: Luc and Lola need to have a black wedding for their ritual
* ViewersAreGoldfish: After Jimmy comes back from the dead we get flashbacks to things we saw not ten minutes before.
* VirginSacrifice: One is needed for the ritual. Subverted in that when they get to the chapel where they intend to pick up their virgin bride they see that she is [[ShotgunWedding visibly pregnant]]. Further played with in that when they find one, it's a male, which stumps Luc.
* VoiceOfTheLegion: Luc has this at times when he becomes "Satan"
* WaifFu: Edward Furlong beating up David Boreanaz and UFC fighter Tito Ortiz probably counts as a male version of this
* WeirdMoon: It goes through multiple phases in one night. There's no plot reason for this; it just happens.
