    El cinéfilo se va percatando de las obsesiones de los autores (directores y escritores), van repitiendo ciertas características en sus obras. En el caso de Carpenter, The Thing y Prince of Darkness están muy hermanadas por un tema común: la invasión de la personalidad, la alienación de los personajes a través de una fuerza exterior.
    Si en The Thing, el ente que poseía a los protagonistas era un ser extraterrestre; en Prince of Darkness dicho ente proviene…

    No diría que es la mejor película de John Carpenter. Tampoco diría que es mi favorita (aunque está muy cerca). De lo que sí estoy seguro es que es la película más John Carpenter de John Carpenter. Un perfecto resumen de su estilo, sus virtudes, sus ticks. Tiene todo lo que hace a Carpenter genial: perfecto sentido del humor, jump-scares de la más alta calidad, delish gore y el mejor horror por encuadre. El score, como dice…

    Para mi, esta es top 3 de Carpenter. Y es mi score favorito del director. Grandes palabras amigos.

    So much information thrown into this film that if you didn't have any knowledge of religion, physics, or biology, you would be lost. Not to say the action and the special effects itself aren't marvelous because they are. There are legends that stretch far beyond what most people know. This movie spares no-one from what some consider a truth. Consider yourself warned.

    Maybe its because less than a week ago I was poking around 600 year old cathedrals, but I thought the Prince of Darkness deserved more doom than the spray goo and homeless zombies here. It's classic Carpenter entertainment though, and the score is constantly at maximum dread capacity.

    La vi por primera vez hace no tanto, unos 6 años, y me dejó un pelín tibio, de ahí que estuviera en la parte baja de mi escala Carpenter, pero con el tiempo, algunos favoritos bajan (Starman) y otros menos amados suben, y ese es el caso de El principe de las tinieblas. No creo que sea de las mejores, pero queda más cerca de lo que en un primer momento imaginaba.

    Carpenter escribe la historia (bajo pseudónimo) tratando de…

    There's great eerie atmosphere in the first half, but it all kind of falls apart when stuff actually starts to happen.

    A bit of Fulci by way of Carpenter. One of Carpenters best and more underrated films.

    Kinda slow. Doesn't feel like much happens. My least favorite Carpenter (of what I've seen, which does not include his later works) but it's still John Carpenter, so it's definitely good.

    I love re-discovering Carpenter's work. I was a child when I saw this, and seeing it now gives me a greater appreciation for it. Interesting take on Satan. Love the performances. Brief bits of comic relief work really well too. Loads of atmosphere. Builds to a great climax.

    The slightly maligned second effort from Carpenter's unofficial 'Apocalypse trilogy' is essentially a supernatural rendering of his own Assault on Precinct 13 (1976) and comes presented in multiple shades of insane: Evil slime, quantum physics-based anti-Gods, Alice Cooper's ingenious use of a bicycle, an uncomfortably long opening credit sequence, the seemingly ubiquitous - but brilliant - electronic score, and Donald Pleasence's sadly laughable performance as a tenuous, old priest.
