Before there were pretty superheroes there was Darkman.

Before he made Peter Parker swing dance, Sam Raimi gave us one of the strangest superhero movies from a decade teeming with strange superhero movies. Released in the summer of 1990 on the heels of Tim Burton’s Batman, tantalizing teasers (“Who is Darkman?”) promised another dark avenger. What Raimi and company delivered was a twisted mash-up of pulp heroes like The Shadow and classic movie monsters tinged with the Evil Dead filmmaker’s distinctive blend of horror, action, and frequent bursts of comedy.
