    Big Trouble in Little China meets Exorcist with a bad synth score and an Alice Cooper cameo. Flawed film, but it has a special place in my heart. The reoccurring dream sequence is still one of the coolest concepts I've seen in a movie.

    So creepy and often revolting. The effects and atmosphere throughout is really great stuff. Another knock-out for Carpenter.

    1. Love John Carpenter, his movies, his music, whatever.
    2.Cast, Donald Pleasence, That old chinese guy from Big Trouble in Little China, Alice Cooper as Schizo homeless guy! How can I lose??

    So I'm not sure what this movie is trying to be, Exorcist/Zombies/Sci-Fi something?? This movie is slow, and not slow burn building tension slow...just boring...I mean, when satan gets involved you expect some fireworks right?? But sadly no, it's a grab bag of horror ideas thrown up on the screen, just chalk this one up to "even the best of us have bad days"

    "I broke out like that when I was 12, and the doctor said that it was homosexual panic."

    "I'm a confirmed sexist."

    "You could almost pass for Asian."

    Martin Quartermass sure wrote killer dialogue.

    Another claustrophobic Carpenter joint featuring characters trapped in one location by a malevolent outside force (re: The Thing, Assault on Precinct 13). I liked how Prince of Darkness gradually built tension, and the ending felt perfect. It's kind of strange that Satan spent a bunch of…

    Slow build up to a pretty great, pretty intense finale, with the usual Carpenter humor in camaraderie. For a movie called "Prince of Darkness" it weirdly stays fairly grounded, yet manages some genuine gross-outs and one flat-out terrific image.

    This is good. A badass synth score (natch), a lot of chilling imagery, and loads of crazed supernatural fuckery. But mainly, I just want Donald Pleasence to be happy.

    Watched the Shout Factory blu-ray today and forgot how much I dug this film in the theaters - hadn't seen it since then. Maybe the new awesome John Carpenter solo record - Lost Themes on Sacred Bones label influenced me to watch it - I enjoyed it equally as much! Wonderful creepy pacing and nice wide, slow shots of whole cast working out the spirituality and the science. Part 2 in the Apocalypse trilogy and I enjoy it equally to…

    As a young horror enthusiast (probably saw this around 10-12) this was one that left me cold, too slow and weird for me to appreciate. Watching it today I have certainly warmed up to it but I would not place it up there with top tier Carpenter films, and it's clearly the weakest of Carpenter's "Apocalypse Trilogy" in my mind. Carpenter has always been in his own league when it comes to the look and feel of his movies and…

    Very underrated. It did not do well when it originally came out, and left a dull impression on me after all these years. But, after watching the 35mm screening last night, it was like finding a lost treasure. Another Carpenter classic!
