Our take

This pungent fever-dream of Southern Gothic neo-noir is soaked with atmosphere and nerve-shredding, voodoo-inflected chills. Vividly recreating 1950s New Orleans, and featuring a devilish supporting turn from Robert De Niro, Angel Heart’s mysteries will keep you guessing right to the end.
