The Crow: Wicked Prayer was the fourth and final movie based on The Crow comic by James O'Barr. It was directed by Lance Mungia, inspired by the Norman Partridge novel. It had a one week theatrical premiere on June 3, 2005 at AMC Pacific Place Theatre in Seattle, Washington before being released direct to video on July 19, 2005. Like the other sequels to cult movie, The Crow, it had a poor critical reception.
The opening legend states, "The polluted town of Lake Ravasu sits on the Raven Aztec reservation. The tribe is closing the toxic mine to open up a resort casino. The miners are at a breaking point", driven by the fear of losing their jobs.
Jimmy Cuervo (Edward Furlong) is a down-on-his-luck ex-con living in Lake Ravasu, a place that would run him out of town if not for the remainder of his probation. He was imprisoned for killing a would-be rapist in a fight. With his probation nearly finished, Jimmy plans to start a new life with his girlfriend, Lily Ignites The Dawn (Emmanuelle Chriqui), and leave the town for good. Lily's priest father, Harold (Danny Trejo), and brother, local cop Tanner (Dave L. Ortiz) both venomously hate Jimmy.
Deep in the town's underworld is a group of Satanists led by escaped convict Luc "Death" Crash (David Boreanaz) and his fiancee Lola Byrne (Tara Reid). Along with their three confederates, "Pestilence" (Yuji Okumoto), a terminally-ill waste disposal worker, "Famine" (Tito Ortiz), a "half-breed" fry cook, and "War" (Marcus Chong), a psychotic mine worker, Luc and Lola go to the trading post where Lily works. The gang murder Jimmy, who meant to propose that night, and Lily in a brutal ritual that they hope will conjure the rebirth of the Antichrist. The ritual includes removing Lily's eyes, bestowing precognitive powers upon Lola, and Jimmy's heart. The gang then dump their bodies inside an old freezer.
