With Liam Neeson, Frances McDormand, Colin Friels, Larry Drake
Directed by Sam Raimi

A scientist working on skin synthesis is blown up by a crime boss. He is forced to become a well-done angel of vengeance, setting up his makeshift lab in a warehouse and using his skin methods to temporarily reconstruct his face. With many B-movie and comic book super-hero elements, the film conveys an entertaining action romp and a tragic sense of isolation, as our dark hero is unable to unite with his love. One can see this 1990 flick as the fusion between the
Evil Dead, which Raimi made a decade before this, and Spider-Man, which he directed a decade later. Spawned several inferior sequels.
