Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"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
"A hot little movie with even hotter performances"
‑ Clint Morris, Moviehole
"An underappreciated thriller with a sizzling Lisa Bonet to boot!"
‑ John Urbancich, Your Movies (cleveland.com)
"One of the few truly great modern horror films"
‑ Ken Hanke, Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)
"Offbeat Faustian voodoo tale about the descent of a sleazy private detective into hell."
‑ Dennis Schwartz, Ozus' World Movie Reviews
"Seriously creepy bayou noir with more twists than you can shake a chicken bone at."
‑ Scott Weinberg, eFilmCritic.com
"Este excepcional noir conta com maravilhosa fotografia, edição primorosa, roteiro envolvente e - o mais importante - uma atuação genial de Rourke, digna de Marlon Brando."
‑ Pablo Villaca, Cinema em Cena
"Alan Parker's pulp sensibilities are beautifully honed by this razor-sharp piece of occult noir."
‑ Rob Vaux, Flipside Movie Emporium
"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
"feels awfully conventional on the whole"
‑ Christopher Null, Filmcritic.com
"Erotic, twisty and incredibly disturbed. Splendid!"
‑ Widgett Walls, Needcoffee.com
