“No film has ever frightened me more than Prince of Darkness…Carpenter is on top of his game…” – DVD Verdict

It is evil… It has awakened.

Master of horror John Carpenter (Halloween, The Thing) directs this terrifying battle between mankind and the ultimate evil.

A group of graduate students and scientists uncover an ancient canister in an abandoned church, but when they open it, they inadvertently unleash a strange liquid and an evil force on all of humanity. As the liquid turns their co-workers into zombies, the remaining members realize they have released the most unspeakable horror of them all. Terror mounts as the team must fight to save the world from a devilish fury that has been contained for over seven million years.

Starring Donald Pleasence (Halloween), Jameson Parker (Simon & Simon), Lisa Blount (Needful Things), rock icon Alice Cooper and Victor Wong and Dennis Dun (both from Carpenter’s Big Trouble In Little China), this “ingenious twist on classical occultism” (Science Fiction, Horror and Fantasy Film Review) will scare you witless!

Why We Love It

“This is a dread-filled, well-acted, brilliantly-paced tale of good vs. evil full of great characters, amazing locations, top-notch horror and scares, and Alice Cooper to top it all off. And the transfer for this film’s arrival on Blu-ray is staggeringly beautiful. My must buy of the week for sure.” — Box Office Buz

“Prince of Darkness is one of Carpenter’s best movies, and that alone is reason enough to get it if you haven’t already. If you already have the DVD, the Blu-ray is a damn fine upgrade. The picture looks amazing and it has extras galore. Consider it a must have.” — Hell Notes

“Strange, original and very creepy, it’s Carpenter pushing the horror boundaries and once again proving that he was always way ahead of his time.” — Assignment X

“Scream Factory’s new Blu-ray offers a beautiful new transfer… it’s a must own for genre fans” — Film School Rejects
