Synopsis: Det. John Hobbes is convinced that when killer Edgar Reese is executed, all of his troubles are over. But when people he knows and people on the street start to sing the same tune that Reese sang in the gas chamber, and those same people taunt him, he is told that maybe the cursed fallen angel Azazel is behind it all. Azazel is cursed to roam the Earth without a form, and he can switch bodies by any contact, making him hard to track. When Hobbes is forced to kill a man possessed by Azazel, he must clear his name while protecting his family and others from the evil, vengeful Azazel.

I want to tell you about the time

I almost died.

I never thought it would happen to me.

Not at this age.



How did I get into this fix?

How did it all begin?

If I go back to the beginning

that'll take forever.

So, let's start more recently.




I thought the governor

didn't approve of this.

The more they don't approve,

the more they want to watch.

So what is this, six notches on your belt?



F*** you.

Ask me more nicely, huh?

John Hobbes.

You're wanted in the dance hall.

Edgar Reese.

Well, well, well.

Look who's here.

It's the brilliant detective

who sealed my brutish fate.

That's right.

So, what's this?

They're making you famous now?

Big time. They're gonna put me

in the movies. Documentary.

All courtesy of the ACLU.

They'll shoot me getting smoked.

Who knows?

Maybe it'll be a big video rental.

All these society ladies showing it

to their dinner guests:

"You see that there?

That's a urine stain, ladies."

"Oh, my, it's not urine."

It's good to see you, Hobbes.

It's good to be seen by you, Reese.


...my best pal.

You're still a good fella.

Open the gate.

You remind me of somebody, Hobbes.

Indeed you do.

Indeed you do.

Do you like riddles?

No, I don't.

Here's a beaut.

Why is there...

...a space between Lyons and Spakowsky?


Come on. You should know this one, pal.

You should know this one.

Open your eyes. Look around sometime.

Open the gate.

Remember this, Hobbes.

A day...

...a week, a month.

What are you, a Nazi now?

It's Dutch.

What goes around...

...really goes around.

You have a safe trip.

I'll be looking for you.

What goes around really goes around.

Howdy, folks.

Ladies, gents...

...cocksuckers, pederasts...

...I hope you all enjoy the show. Yes, I do.

I'll give you a blowj*b

if you get me out of this baby.


"Is on my side

"Yes, it is


"Is on my side

"Yes, it is

"Now, you always say

"That you want to be free

"But I'll come running back

"I'll come running back to you"

Baby, come on, go ahead...

...light up my life!

Something is always happening.

But when it happens,

people don't always see it...

...or understand it...

...or accept it.

The criminals don't accept consequences.

They kill. It's not their fault.

This is the consequence of what I do.

-Look who made it. How'd it go?

-Mr. Consequence.

-He died.

-I told you.

Get one more.

Nice to see you.

How you doing, Gracie?

-Don't tempt me with that.


What's your poison? We got some Becks.

We got some Guinness.

We got some Bass.

-Budweiser's good for me.




No, we're going imported here.

-If you can't afford it, I'll buy.

-I can afford it. Budweiser.

At least have a Bud lce

or a Bud Dry or something.

It is just a Bud, okay?

-You guys want anything?


Here's your Bud.

He was one of the most notorious inmates.

Here you go.

Thank you, sweetheart.

You're an unusual cop, Hobbes.


I've been in this precinct about what,

five, six months?

Everybody says,

"Hobbes don't take no cream."

"Hobbes don't take no cream."

Now is that true, or what?

No, I don't like cream.

That means "no"?

Yeah, it means "no."

Now, is that "no" as in "never,"

"no" as in "sometimes"...

...or "no" as in "I do,

but I don't like to talk about it"?

"No" as in "never."

This is a big city, Hobbesy.

We got a tradition to uphold.

Got something wrong with your ears?

When the man says something, he says it.

This is hypothetical:

A cop who's trying to make ends meet
