“Daryl Van Horne – The Witches of Eastwick (1987)
The casting department for comedy-horror The Witches of Eastwick must have earned an early lunch on the day they elected Jack Nicholson to portray the devil himself. The pointed eyebrows, the shark-like teeth, the fact that he’s still suave whilst sporting a hipster pony tail and a swimming skull cap – they all help to redefine the phrase ‘devilishly handsome’.
Even so, Daryl Van Horne is no match for the titular triumvirate of Cher, Michelle Pfeiffer and Susan Sarandon, who after summoning the man of their dreams, realise he’s nothing but bad news. After unleashing a volley of 1980s special effects on the Horny Little Devil, he’s sent packing back from whence he came, pointed tail between his legs.”
