A stunningly gothic piece of comic book fantasy, which is also known for an unfortunate on-set accident which led to the death of the lead actor halfway through the shoot, meaning body doubles and digital effects had to be used to complete filming.
The movie itself is a fine piece of work, accomplished in bringing its dark anti-hero to the screen, a rock guitarist who returns from the dead, accompanied by a crow, to wreak revenge on those responsible for his murder and his girlfriend's.
The cult following speaks for itself.
