Who knows what evil lurks in the shadow of men? The Shadow knows! Adapted from the long-running classic radio program and Walter B. Gibson’s popular pulp fiction, legendary crime-fighting superhero The Shadow comes to life in the 1994 film adaptation THE SHADOW, starring Alec Baldwin (“30 Rock”) from visionary filmmaker Russell Mulcahy (Resident Evil: Extinction, Highlander). Brimming with non-stop action and suspense, this wildly entertaining cinematic adventure also stars John Lone (The Last Emperor), Penelope Ann Miller (Carlito’s Way), Peter Boyle (“Everybody Loves Raymond”), Ian McKellen (X-Men), Jonathan Winters (The Smurfs), and Tim Curry (The Rocky Horror Picture Show).

      Can’t help but admit I’m a little disappointed. Was hoping for a commentary and/or a vintage featurette.
