    A little like a hybrid of The Exorcist and Assault on Precinct 13 with strange sci-fi elements. The film is unsettling in a way I don’t really know how to describe. I like being creeped out (as opposed to repeatedly startled) and while the film does have an intriguing setup and slow building atmosphere, there's a serious, bleak tone to the film that just kinda made me uncomfortable. Maybe I just didn’t like Jameson Parker as the smug moustachioed lead,…

    Plenty to laugh about and plenty to be creeped out about. There is quite a large cast, so you may find yourself early on doing what me and my wife did- "She's going to die," or "Oh, he's dead." And yes, that is Alice Cooper playing the dark omen of a character, simply credited as "Street Schizo".

    Carpenter's most criminally underrated film. Prince of Darkness is, with no doubt, excellent. The score is perfect (which isn't really a surprise coming from Carpenter), the acting is pure Carpenter glory (a Kurt Russel cameo would've been welcome), the script is great, and everything just works. The special effects are outstading. The pacing on this film, however, is fantastic, slow and brooding. There were times during this when I thought I could take it no more. The cinematography is great,…

    A research team finds a mysterious cylinder in a deserted church. If opened, it could mean the end of the world.

    So that's a threefer, I guess - three horror movies in the past week that I managed to approach completely blind despite years of devouring all the horror knowledge I could get my hands on: Pumpkinhead, Witchboard, and this. I guess I always thought this would be a Dracula (or at least, vampire) movie - I mean, you'd think, right? And I was in no great rush to see it - though I don't know why I'd avoid any John…

    I saw this movie one weekend in high school. The ending freaked me out. Still does

    [English/ Spanish review]

    A return to the isolated-group-horror premise so cherished by fans, after Carpenter's attempts at diversification with, well, diverse results. Flawed at times, mostly because of poor supporting cast (thanks our quantic God for Pleasence and Wong), and I'd dare to say for hasty shooting (according to production notes, it was made in four weeks), this is anyway a blast. Full of visual and plot findings (the menacing cylinder, the tachyon-based broadcasts from the future, the nightmarish bunch…

    Dr. Loomis, the grandpa from 3 Ninjas, and a bunch of really old graduate students try to stop the apocalypse while eating snacks and drinking sodas.

    Favorite scene: 3 Ninjas grandpa turned genius theoretical physicist shakes up a soda can and sprays it all over a demon's face. I like to imagine Carpenter wanted to symbolize the aging ninja's liquid kids, thus, showing superiority over evil in the dirtiest, most vulgar way possible.

    Plot hole: Yeah, it's stupid and unnecessary…
