Other mistake: When the girl is kidnapped and Eric goes to save her, he enters a big door of that Gothic cathedral (as depicted on the movie cover). At that moment, the wind blows. But for the scene to make any sense, the wind should blow from the outside in, not from the inside of the church out, but the motion of Eric's hair shows the wind blowing the wrong way. (01:05:55)

Continuity mistake: The can Albrecht drops on the floor when Eric visits moves places without anyone touching it. When Eric says about the hat still being on it's on the wooden flooring. When he walks past to read the file a few minutes later the can is on the carpet. (00:43:25)

Continuity mistake: Eric smashes the door to Gideon's Pawn Shop and stays outside. The shot shows Gideon on the floor then Eric about 6 foot inside the door. Not enough time has passed for him to get that far. (00:26:00)

Continuity mistake: Top Dollar shows a snow globe to a female companion near the start. Her grip on the snow globe changes instantly. In some shots she has her fingers on the glass and not in others. (00:23:35)

Continuity mistake: When Sarah is skateboarding, and the guy in the car yells at her to get out of the road, she pushes with her right foot and has her left foot in front (a "Regular" stance), but in the next shot she is riding "goofy" stance (right foot front), with no time to change stances.

Continuity mistake: Officer Albrecht gets out his car and takes aim at Eric from behind the car door. The camera changes and Albrecht is walking forward without closing the car door or going round it. (00:30:50)

Continuity mistake: When Gideon is in the bar, he takes the top off the bottle just as the other bloke grabs it. The second bloke then proceeds to take the top off the bottle again. (00:41:35)

Sarah: People once believed that when someone dies, a crow carries their soul to the Land of the Dead. But sometimes, something so bad happens that a terrible sadness is carried with it and the soul can not rest. Then sometimes, just sometimes, the crow can bring that soul back to put the wrong things right.

Trivia: Right after Gideon's Pawn Shop blows up and the police officer and Eric are talking, the officer yells at the people looting the shop; one looter is running away with a TV set. This is actually James O'Barr, creator of The Crow comic series! He was on the set one day and the filmmakers asked if he wanted to be in the movie.

Question: In this movie Eric came back one year after his murder, but why in the other movies do the others come back shortly after their deaths?

Answer: There is no explaination given in the films, they are just brought back when the crow feels it is the right time to avenge their murder.
