A FILM BY FRANK PALANGI
DRAVEN-Directors Aaron Lambert and Frank Palangi serve up their own interpretation of the classic Crow series, by James O'Barr,
with the release of this new Crow Fan Film. Draven, takes all of the good stuff from the original Crow storyline
and packs it into fourteen minutes of film. The film opens with Draven donning the guise of The Crow before He visits the
first of the men he plans to kill, avenging his Fiancee's murder. The rest of the film consists of pretty much the same thing,
but there are some things in this adaptation that make it stand out in the crowd. The film is shot entirely in black and white,
giving it the look of the actual graphic novel, with the exception of some flashback sequences that are shot in
color. The Flashbacks also feature some impressive special effects work, giving them a haunting, almost angelic feel.
Since the root of The Crow story is based on tragic events, the ethereal effects used really capture that mood. You can
almost feel Draven's pain as the memories of his lost love haunt his tortured mind. This film also features a different
sort of Draven..Palangi, who stars as both Draven and The Crow in the film, seems a little more agressive, almost Punisher-esque.
One of Palangi's better performances in a Fan Film thus far. An all around well done piece of work. Haunting, touching, and
faithful to it's comio book roots, Draven is one you will remember. Click HERE for the film.
