Plot Summary

Harry Angel, a down-and-out fifties Brooklyn gumshoe, takes us on a journey of violence and murder that canvasses the desperate streets of Harlem, smoke-filled jazz clubs of New Orleans, and ultimately to voodoo rituals in the sweltering swamps of Louisiana. "Angel Heart"... A truly unsettling film experience.

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: The book's so good it deserves a better movie, but Rourke's performance is such that Angel Heart stands out from the necromancy movie crowd. – Richard Luck, Film4, Oct 19, 2012

Rotten: Metaphysical and emotional anemia is an important tradition in cult horror/mystery, a category the daffy plot twists and crimson, incestuous excesses of Angel Heart sit quite cozily in. – Joseph Jon Lanthier, Slant Magazine, Feb 13, 2015

A horror movie for adults!

This is really one of the best of its kind. It deserves to be as famous as The Exorcist. I don't know why it isn't more widely recognized as a classic of the genre. The first time I saw it, I walked out of the theater in a daze-- the ending is that powerful. By far, it is Mickey Rourke's best acting job. That final confrontation between him and DeNiro still gives me chills. If you've never seen it, do yourself a favor and get a copy today. You're really missing something!

Compelling and creepy

this movie is a real suspense/thriller. the twists and turns in this keep you watching till the very end untill the incredible endong.

Great movie, all the way 'round

If you've ever been curious or wondered about whether a person can sell their soul to Satan then this movie plays out what and how that could "look". It has all the "Louisiana aura", atmosphere and character acting from Mickey Rourke, Lisa Bonet and the supporting cast. The supporting cast was JUST as good as the A-List actors/actresses, especially the "story teller" -- great intensity in telling the hidden story!!! And for the guys, there are really hot and steamy love scenes between Mickey and Lisa! Great Voodoo film!
