Based on a book: Hellblazer by Jamie Delano and Garth Ennis (comic book)

Keywords: Action/Adventure, Comic Book, Suicide, Exorcism, Satan

Film adaptation of the Hellblazer comic book series tells the ghoulish story of supernatural detective John Constantine.

Irreverent con man-cum-private eye John Constantine is approached by fellow detective Angela Dodson to help prove foul play in the suspected suicide of her twin sister Isabel. John, unbeknownst to his mortal contemporaries, harbors a ghastly secret; namely, that he is a member of the undead, having committed suicide as a teenager. In the course of investigating the devoutly Catholic Isabel's death, John discovers the presence of demons trying to penetrate our realm, setting himself up for a grand confrontation with Satan as he looks to perform a deed good enough to punch his ticket to Heaven.
