Join us this week as we follow Donald Pleasence and Victor Wong on a metaphysical journey that will question our beliefs, our perception of reality and what is…evil. We are covering John Carpenter’s Prince of Darkness on episode 65 of the Monster Movie Podcast.
Throughout 2014, Raleigh, North Carolina horror host Ormon Grimsby is bringing a classic film from the Eighties straight the Doc Rotten’s door. This month, Ormon and Doc are revisiting the second film in Carpenter’s apocalyptic trilogy, Prince of Darkness.
“This is not a dream… not a dream. We are using your brain’s electrical system as a receiver. We are unable to transmit through conscious neural interference. You are receiving this broadcast as a dream.”

Episode 65 – Prince of Darkness (1987) | Top 5 Apocalyptic Films
Joining Doc on this episode is returning co-host Ormon Grimsby. He continues his adventures revisiting the classics of the 1980′s by bringing the Scream Factory Blu-Ray over to Doc’s mausoleum. They dastardly duo share their thoughts, insights and knowledge of the film on the podcast as they discuss how it was made, how Alice Cooper got involved and the quantum physics that are involved. Well, not too much on the last bit, it’s all so confusing. Woot! But they do spend considerable amount of time on the topic of “just how long are those opening credits anyway?”
After recapping, reviewing and reliving the film, Doc and his co-hosts count down Ormon Grimsby’s top 5 Apocalyptic movies, films that toy with the end of the world.
- Threads (1984)
- Miracle Mile (1988)
- The Last Night (1998)
- John Carpenter’s The Thing (1982)
- Prince of Darkness (1987)
