    John Carpenter likes a good siege but seems to have something against the homeless. In the second of his Apocalypse trilogy, they’re portrayed as demonically possessed psychotics with a penchant for the local insect population.

    Gathering a bunch of no-marks and leftovers from his previous flicks led by a tache-sporting charisma-vortex (only Tom Selleck or Ron Burgundy can rock an onscreen moustache), there’s still much to enjoy in the underrated Prince of Darkness’s barmy mix of quantum physics, religion and…

    Points for Jameson Parker's incredible mustache.

    A group of scientist discover and unknowningly unleash an ancient evil which they must confront, not only to stay amogst the living but to protect their world from this evil, this is the main plot of Prince of Darkness. It's one of John Carpenter's lesser known horror films and one of most confusing(at first) but once the film gets going, it moves along just find. I think the reason for the slow start is to build tension and a feeling of foreboding and dread.

    The atmosphere and score are great and the films ending is something else. Definitely worth checking out if you're a horror fan.

    Fascinating mythology that begs for further exploration, a refreshingly diverse cast, a measured, dread-inducing pace, and a sick synth score, but the whole "isolation of a potential catalyst to an all-out apocalypse in a single location by a group of scientists" concept is leaps and bounds more convincing in the freezing Arctic than Downtown Los Angeles.

    One of John Carpenter's better films! That's not necessarily a compliment; I don't much consider myself a fan. But this is solid. I think it would make a great double feature with Flatliners, which is also not great, but solid and intriguing.

    "Hello? Hello. I've got a message for you, and you're not going to like it. ... Pray for death."

    When a priest investigates the death of another priest, he discovers a hidden chamber in an abandoned California church. Known only to an ancient, secret order of priests called the Brotherhood of Sleep, this chamber has housed a terrible artifact for five-hundred years, keeping its existence hidden from the world, and even the Catholic Church itself.

    It is pure evil, concentrated,…

    A very scaring and dark film from John Carpenter about a priest, a professor, and his students trying to uncover the mystery of a canister which might possess the spawn of Satan.

    Donald Pleasence + Victor Wong = awesome. (Also I love the diverse casting and Jameson Parker's glorious porn stache.)

    31 DAYS OF HORROR: Day 20

    John Carpenter takes the ball from the Twilight Zone episode "The Howling Man" & runs with it. & boy, does he run with it. A lot of people have problems with this one: it's too wordy, too scientific, too slow a build, etc. However, Carpenter masters the slow build on this one. We've got Satan in jar of green goo. I enjoyed the science vs. religion angle. I love the dreadful atmosphere that is always present…

    Have some really strong concepts at the beginning that the film unfortunately didn't explore in the end.
