Lord of Illusions

Buy Tickets

(1995) dir Clive Barker w/Scott Bakula, Kevin J. O’Connor, Famke Janssen, Barry Del Sherman, Daniel von Bargen [109 min; 35mm]
Harry D’Amour, a hardboiled private eye with a penchant for the occult, arrives in Los Angeles and is quickly embroiled in a case involving a famous stage magician, his beautiful wife, and a Manson-like cult leader who may be about to rise from the dead. Say what you will about Barker’s attempt to merge dark fantasy with film noir but this movie remains an idiosyncratic delight with some particularly unnerving performances and is well worth revisiting.
