Mickey Rourke is Johnny Favorite. He made a deal with the devil 12 years ago: his soul for fame but not wishing to go to hell tried to cheat the devil by merging his body & spirit with another. To do this he had to kill someone his age, so he killed the real returning GI Harry Angel and took over his life. The devil is, in fact, Robert De Niro. His name, Louis Cyphre, is an extension of "Lucifer", "guided by his hand" Cyphre makes Harry snuff out all those connected to the "cover up"; including Dr. Albert Fowler, Toots Sweet and the Krusemarks among others. Cyphre reveals that he also used Harry/Johnny to off lawyer Herman Winesap in a *nasty accident*. Then in a last act of cruelty Cyphre uses Harry/Johnny to kill Epiphany Proudfoot...Angel's own daughter then frames the wretched PI for paternal silicide. As Harry is sent off to face the electric chair he sees the final sting in this tale, his grandson's eyes glowing a familar color...which leaves no doubt that her (Epiphany) offspring was fathered by none other than "Lucifer"

Continuity mistake: After the dog attack, Angel is talking with Epiphany as a tan pickup passes. Just before the truck blocks our view, Angel is clutching his shirt and jacket to his chest with his right hand, and Epiphany's arms hang straight down. As the truck leaves the screen, Angel is holding just his jacket tightly in his fist, at his side (no shirt visible) and Epiphany's left hand clutches her kidney area. The changes are instantaneous, obviously from different takes. (01:16:05)
