, written by David S. Goyer and directed by Tim Pope.
Instead of Eric Draven the indie rock guitarist and his fiancee Shelly who are murdered after Shelly protests tenant eviction in the wrong neighborhood, we have Ashe Corven the motorcycle mechanic and his son Danny, who are murdered after Danny accidentally causes them to witness a gangland killing in the wrong neighborhood. Instead of Devil's Night in Detroit we have All Saint's Day in Los Angeles. Instead of a gang of interestingly named and dressed street thugs called Tin-Tin, Fun Boy, Skank and Top Dollar, we have a gang of interestingly named and drssed street thugs called Spider Monkey, Nemo, Kali and Curve. Instead of archvillain crime lord Top Dollar and consort-with-mystic-knowledge Myca, we have archvillain crime lord Judah and consort-with-mystic-knowledge Sibyl. Instead of... oh, never mind. Sarah from the first film is in this one though, as an adult, now played by Mia Kirshner.
