(1987) Prince of Darkness

I absolutely love John Carpenter and this one is right up there with some of his best. While the setup can initially seem overly ambitious, it quickly finds its familiar identity as a gruesome, body horror epic.

I really dig the religious aspects of this film. I’ve always talked about how the devil being portrayed in horror films is my most favorite but also a really difficult feat to pull off. It makes sense that Carpenter established this evil incarnate as an actual entity, without doing anything cheesy.

Prince of Darkness is simply an awesome film.

7.5/10

  1. I just made the comment the other day that I wanted to see this film again. When it came out and I saw it in the theater, I have to admit that it got shafted. People didn’t expect this from Carpenter. This movie stayed with me for weeks. Thoroughly enjoyed the experience.
