Darkman Blu-ray To Be Released On February 18, 2014

Scream Factory will released Darkman on Blu-ray on February 18, 2014. The 1990 superhero action film was directed and co-written by Sam Raimi and based on a short story Raimi wrote that paid homage to Universal’s horror films of the 1930s.

The film stars Liam Neeson as Peyton Westlake, a scientist who is attacked and left for dead by a ruthless mobster, Robert Durant (played by Larry Drake) after his girlfriend, an attorney (Frances McDormand) runs afoul of a corrupt developer (Colin Friels).

Unable to secure the rights to either The Shadow or Batman, Raimi decided to create his own superhero. Over the years, Darkman has become regarded as a cult film.
