Scientist Dr Peyton Westlake is on the verge of a scientific breakthrough - a synthetic skin which can help burn victims. The only problem is that the current versions of the skin that Westlake is working on only has a lifespan of 99 minutes before dissolving.

Life is good for Westlake, as well as his work his relationship with girlfriend Julie Hastings is blossoming with the prospects of marriage soon...

Julie's job as a lawyer has found some documents linking a developer to the organised crime in the city. Leaving the incriminating documents at Westlake's apartment come laboratory, Westlake discovers that the newest version of his synthetic skin can last past the 99 minute barrier, but only if not exposed to natural sunlight.

Westlake's discovery is soon interrupted by the arrival of Durant and his gang of thugs at the laboratory, they kill Westlake's assistant and ransack the laboratory. Attacking Westlake himself and then leaving him inside the building which they explode, Durant believes that it is the end of their problems... but Westlake does not die.

 Although he survived the vicious attack and the explosion, Peyton's face and hands are burned beyond recognition.

In hospital, surgeons remove Peyton's neurons so that he can no longer feel pain, it also augments his strength but makes him prone to violent tempers.

After leaving hospital, Westlake scavenges the remains of his laboratory and hides out in an abandoned building. Slowly rebuilding his equipment and the synthetic skin, Westlake takes on the alter ego of Darkman to vent his anger at what has happened to him.

Seeking revenge on Durant and his gang, Peyton Westlake utilises his synthetic skin to impersonate members of the gang and member by member extracts his vengeance.

Peyton also uses the synthetic skin to appear how he used to before the explosion and tries to resume his life with Julie, but his violent outbursts start to get in the way.

Whilst he is gaining his revenge against the gang, Westlake discovers that Durant takes his orders from Louis Strack Jr. Strack is also trying to develop a relationship with Julie.

After a skyscraper battle with Durant and his gang in which they are killed, Westlake confronts Strack who has taken Julie hostage on a building site.

After taunting Westlake about what he has become and how he looks, Strack falls from the building construction and dies, but not before Julie sees how Westlake really looks like now.

Realising that he can never lead a normal life, Darkman flees into the city.

 

TWO

 

Scientist Peyton Westlake continues to work on his synthetic skin, whilst fighting crime as Darkman.

Despite looking as if he had been blown up in the first movie, Robert G Durant was in fact a coma all this time since the helicopter explosion, and returns to take over the organised crime in the city.

Trying to perfect his synthetic skin with the assistance of Dr David Brinkman (Jesse Collins), Durant turns up, and in a scene reminiscent of the first movie, Brinkman is tortured and killed, leaving the work in ruins. It is upto Darkman once again to disguise himself as members of Durant's gang and manages to destroy them from within.

Whilst Westlake is infiltrating Durant's gang - reporter Jill Randall is trying to prove that Peyton Westlake is still alive.

It was originally intended that Die Darkman Die was going to be the sequel to the original movie, but when Larry Drake became available to reprise his role of Durant, this movie was fast tracked into development.

 

THREE

 

Still working on his synthetic skin, Peyton Westlake as Darkman steals a crate of money from drug lord Peter Rooker to continue his research.

Rooker is determined to find out how Darkman has his superior strength, and enlists the aid of Dr Bridget Thorne, the doctor who originally worked on Westlake's body when he was burnt in the first movie.

Gaining a sample of Westlake's adrenaline, Dr Thorne develops a designer steroid which enhances someone's strength at the cost of their mental agility.

Learning of what has happened, Darkman plans his revenge against Rooker by impersonating him to his family and colleagues in order to bring him down.

It is upto Darkman to destroy the formula to the steroid and seek vengeance against Rooker, but not at the cost of Rooker's wife and child.
