I never read the comic, or had any idea of the character before hand, but when those credits rolled for the first time, I wanted to be Eric Draven. I was instantly obsessed with the character.

Sure, if I look at it today, it's a middle of the road revenge/fantasy flick, with some style. It's nothing too special. That being said, I'll always give it bonus points for having a special place in my childhood. It was the very first movie I ever owned.
For it's time it was a culturally breathtaking film and I absolutely loved it! My brother had the comics before the release of the movie and I skimmed them over saying to myself this isn't a superhero so I tossed it to the side.

But as opening weekend came upon us the whole family ironically went and seen this diamond in the rough and at the end I too wanted to be Eric Draven.

The Cure - The Burn will be etched into my brain as long as I live.
