(By the by, Silvestri, a very nice man, does not have red, demon eyes. That's just poor photography at work.)
Anyway, The Darkness was quite fun, especially in multiplayer on the Xbox 360. Players can alternate between playing a gun-toting hitman and a malevolent little imp called a Darkling. In the single-player game, you get to create up to four different Darkling assistants, some of whom carry explosives, or will hack up enemies with a saw, or tote around guns.
