Movie Details

An unusually well photographed and acted TV movie, Dark Angel is set in New Orleans, home turf of enigmatic Cajun detective Walter D'Arcangelo (Eric Roberts). The detective's present assignment finds him going undercover in the seamier districts of the Big Easy in order to trap a serial killer who preys exclusively on adulterous wives. In time-honored movie tradition, the elusive killer sends out cryptic clues to the relentless D'Arcangelo, who throughout his investigation is wrestling with some rather persistent demons of his own. Things come to a head when D'Arcangelo himself is suspected of being the very murderer he seeks! Dark Angel made its initial Fox network appearance on September 10, 1996. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
