FtL 222 – Darkman

A 1992 pilot based on a 1990 Sam Raimi movie based on horror film noir of the 1930s. Plus weird face stuff.


Payton Westlake (Chrisopher Bowen) is Darkman, a man with an only occasional face who likes yelling at homeless children, and old mate Larry Drake is back in villain form as Durant.

This reimagining/weird cut-and-paste job of the Sam Raimi film answers all those questions you might have had about the Darkman character, like: If he’s homeless, how does he get all the gadgets? What’s his beef with bad grammar? Why does synthetic skin boil like lava after an hour and a half? All that, and less!

If you like 90% voice-over explanation dialogue, you’ll love* Darkman!
