The Crow: Wicked Prayer – Dare Daniel Podcast Episode 109
“The stupidity of this movie compounds every single second that you watch it.”
Daniel and Corky have no sympathy for the devil after watching Edward Furlong as avenging bird Jimmy Cuervo in this wretched straight-to-video sequel. A film that tries too hard while making no effort whatsoever, The Crow: Wicked Prayer concerns an ex-con tragically caught between wealthy fundamentalist Christian Aztecs and Satanist miners. No, seriously, it does. If that’s not enough terrible, Tara Reid plays an eye-slicing serial killer shaman redeemed through the power of prayer.
Elsewhere, Daniel and Corky discuss Stephen Tobol-ouchies, gas pump farts, zap flashbacks and peyote-dusted deviled ham.
