Hellboy
(2004)
   Film about a DEMON conjured by the Nazis, who becomes a fighter for the forces of good. Directed by Guillermo del Toro, the film stars Ron Perlman as Hellboy. The film is based on the comic book character created by Mike Mignola, which debuted in 1993.
   In the last days of World War II, the Nazis conjure a young demon in a desperate attempt to avoid defeat. The Allies raid the camp and capture the demon, Hellboy. The demon joins the U.S. government to battle evil. His destiny is to be the Beast of the Apocalypse.
   Hellboy has supernormal strength and supernatural powers. He ages slowly and heals quickly. His oversized right arm and hand, called “the Hand of Doom,” is impervious to pain yet able to pick up things as small as flies. He uses it as a weapon. Other weapons include holy relics and a large revolver called “the Good Samaritan” that fires custom bullets made of garlic, silver, and holy water. Hellboy II was released in 2008.
