Stream horror overkill from the «Doctor Strange 2» maker uncut This superhero highlight once even landed on the index! — Cinema News

Universal Pictures

As one of the many filmmakers who made the leap from the horror genre to the blockbuster genre (along with Francis Ford Coppola, Peter Jackson, James Gunn and Zack Snyder, among others), Sam Raimi is of course known for his » Dance of the Devil » series, but also for his superhero adventures – the “ Spider-Man ” trilogy with Tobey Maguire and now also “ Doctor Strange In The Multiverse Of Madness ”, which brings horror to the Marvel Cinematic Universe. On the other hand, one film in which Raimi harmonizes his two core competencies in a particularly harmonious way is often forgotten: “ Darkman ”.

The uncut version of the superhero film with Liam Neeson in the title role even ended up on the index in Germany and was therefore not even allowed to be openly advertised and sold until 2013. More than 20 years after the theatrical release, the FSK was all the more merciful in the course of a re-examination and even released the uncut version for those aged 16 and over. Today, the full-length film is available practically everywhere films are available – for example on DVD or Blu-ray and from various streaming providers such as Amazon Prime Video.

Similar to «Doctor Strange 2», «Darkman» also bears the unmistakable signature of Sam Raimi, who knows like no other how to jump between diaphragmatic attack and chilling terror and thereby transfer the advantages of both aspects to the other subject. Of course, in «Darkman» you can expect a lot of other Raimi trademarks that also got their moment in the Marvel blockbuster — from the guest appearance of Bruce Campbell to nightmarish sequences including Dutch Angle use to the Oldsmobile Delta 88. The cream-colored one V8 classics have always been a must in every Raimi film.

In short, if you like Raimi’s latest comic book adaptation, there’s a good chance that you’ll also enjoy his first superhero adventure.

This is «Dark Man»

«Darkman» differs significantly from classic superhero films — whether it’s «Avengers», «Superman» or «Sin City». Because the so-called «man with the face mask» does not come from a famous comic, but from a short story Raimi, which he wrote at a young age as a homage to the legendary Universal horror films from the 1930s such as «Frankenstein», «Dracula» or «The Invisible One». wrote.

At the center of the story is the scientist Peyton Westlake ( Liam Neeson ), who is working on the production of artificial skin — but who simply does not want to make the big breakthrough. Again and again he makes new attempts, which always lead to the same result: after 99 minutes, the artificial skin begins to disintegrate. One day, however, enlightenment came to him, and of all things in the dark: because apparently it was the light all the time that stood in the way of the desired result. It’s just stupid that Westlake’s laboratory is being attacked by the nasty Durant ( Larry Drake ) and his henchmen at the same time as this realization.

The crook targets a memo Westlake’s girlfriend Julie ( Frances McDormand ) left with him. So now the gangsters are taking on the scientist. He is tortured with acid and suffers severe burns, but he escapes — and survives. Disfigured on the outside and with dead nerve endings that rob him of any sense of pain, he is forced to leave his old life, laboratory and love behind. From now on he roams the streets as a dark avenger to take down those who destroyed his life forever. One after the other…
