If there is one thing you are sure to remember about Halloween 1994, (even if you didn't recall the exact year until right now) it is that nearly everyone was dressed as Brandon Lee's character, Eric Draven, from The Crow. I don't know if everyone thought it was a unique idea for a costume, or if it was just a good choice because it was so easy to make but boy was it popular.
What's great about this being such a popular costume is, I like to imagine the wearer superimposing themselves into the iconic suit-up scene as they prepared to celebrate the Holiday. I imagine they were blaring a copy of the soundtrack to the film. Even better, they were smart enough to cue up "Burn" by The Cure for maximum effect. In a perfect world they were sad and angst-ridden. Bonus points for punching a mirror.
Thankfully, I was not one of the guilty parties, even though it shocks me to no end that I wasn't. I was a fan of the comic book. I loved the movie when it came out. I love The Cure. I was probably considered to be goth. Yet somehow I avoided the cliched costume.
That was Halloween 1994. A bunch of people in white face paint, black lipstick, tight black clothes and electrical tape.
As for the scene itself, I can only come up with one word to describe it, mediocre. There really isn't much going on other than the application of makeup followed by crying and some screaming.
If you were guilty of being "The Crow" (I am aware that the character is not named "The Crow") on Halloween 1994, or any year for that matter, please let us know about it by commenting below.
