Alan Parker`s brilliantly imaginative thriller Angel Heart is re-born on DVD for the Director`s Chair Collection.

The film, packed with stunning images, jaw-dropping scenes and superb performances from Robert De Niro and Mickey Rourke, is a fusion of two genres - the classic Chandleresque detective story and the supernatural.

Harry Angel is hired for $125 a day to track down the big band swinger Johnny Favourite. What seems like a straight-forward missing person case dramatically becomes a murder hunt for this down-and-out private detective. His client, Louis Cyphe, a mysterious stranger, is forced to up his fee to keep Angel on the case.

Each of Angel`s leads ends up as a victim of a ritualistic act of murder, as he begins to put together the pieces in the jigsaw of Johnny`s strange story... the nightmare has just begun.
