R | | Horror, Mystery, Thriller
A private investigator is hired by a man who calls himself Louis Cyphre to track down a singer named Johnny Favorite. But the investigation takes an unexpected and somber turn.
When Harry Angel (Mickey Rourke) visits Margaret Krusemark (Charlotte Rampling) for the first time, Margaret orders her maid to bring them tea. She and the maid speak briefly in French, which Angel obviously doesn't understand. The maid is asking "Should I bring out the best cups?" and Margaret responds "No".
Johnny. Johnny. Johnny.
When the two goons and the dog are attacking Harry and have him on his back, the bulge of a knee pad can be seen under his right pants leg.
Scene during credits shows Mickey Rourke's character descending to 'Hell' inside of an elevator.
A scene featuring Mickey Rourke and Lisa Bonet having sex was slightly cut by around 10 secs before release in order to avoid a X rating. The European theatrical version and US video version restore the missing footage.
