Dance With the Devil (Perdita Durango)

When credits rolled on David Lynch's Wild at Heart it seemed like no sequel was necessary. But Wild at Heart novelist Barry Gifford continued Sailor and Luna's tales in a series of books. He also wrote a spin-off novel 59° and Raining: The Story of Perdita Durango  featuring the Santeria practicing criminal from Wild at Heart.  The film adaptation was made with no connection to Lynch's earlier film, and was released in the states as Dance With the Devil. Can it be as Wild as Lynch's villain? Join the Now Playing hosts to find out!
