movie cover

A scientist on the verge of a major discovery in synthetic skin is burned beyond recognition when his laboratory is demolished by a sadistic gang. Altered by an experimental medical procedure, the man known as Darkman begins to assume alternate identities and seeks revenge against his assailants.

Qvamp says:

We over here at Queer Horror are having arguments over whether this is actually classified as horror. So, sticking with the theme 'all exceptions count, 'cause there's no one else touching this territory', it's included. By the way, the movie is not worth seeing, and there's a non-overt gay villain in it.

But, it is done by the same director that does Hercules/Xena and the Evil Dead series.

We are looking for a copy of this. If you own one and want to get rid of it, let us know!
