Taglines:  He was much more than a financer....


Plot Summary:

Nathan Blackthorne's return to the big screen after 2007's failed Donnie & Jonnie turned into the biggest cash cow Sunset Studios has seen since the original Angel Assassin.  Blackthorne's public life at the time was swirled in controversy following his release from prison after the murder of his daughter, Sierra Merteuil (with old flame Renee Merteuil).  Of course Blackthorne's casting as the same character in a remake of Lamont 3's earlier version wasn't all that elevated this film to cult-like status.  Several cast members and others associated with the film were the unwitting targets of a real-life serial killer.  Blackthorne emerged unscathed and became a household name nearly thirty years after his introduction into the industry by Jonas Lamont.
