Angel Heart is a thriller and a horror movie, but most of all it's an exuberant exercise in style, in which Parker and his actors have fun taking it to the limit.

A diabolical treat with Rourke and De Niro in fine form.

This is Mickey Rourke's movie, and he puts in a mesmerising performance. It's a desperate shame that he subsequently descended into so many poor films. This remains his moment of triumph, and if you haven't seen it, you're in for a treat.
