Film Review: Prince of Darkness (1987)

Prince-of-Darkness-1987-movie-john-carpenter-5

SYNOPSIS: A research team finds a mysterious cylinder in a deserted church. If opened, it could mean the end of the world. REVIEW: Prince of Darkness (1987), one of Carpenter’s more darker films, of which one would assume a vampire king of sorts, actually refers to Satan and his darker leader. Darker leader? Now there’s an interesting concept….an evil force that Satan serves. In fact “his” father, of whom the film refers to is called … Continue reading
