Another generic horror B-movie from Carpenter, with all his usual strengths and weaknesses in evidence. Some nice ideas and a decent aura of suspense, but slightly amateurish execution and production design. Decent but unspectacular.

This is a horror movie about ideas rather than just straight-up scares. The story combines science with spiritual beliefs in an intriguing way. There is a slow build of atmosphere that leads to surprising and unnerving moments that stayed with me later. A very underrated creep show.

Our Daily Free Stream: John Carpenter - Prince Of Darkness. Zwei Kurzfilme hat John Carpenter 2016 gedreht: Escape From New York und Distant Dream. Gings da mehr um die Musik? Oder gibts ein Leinwand Comeback? Erinnern wir uns an seine schwere Phase während der 80er - Tief unter der Erde, in den Krypten der alten Kirche schläft etwas, das nun erwacht. Es existiert seit 2000 Jahren und wartet auf uns - noch lange, bevor uns Jesus Christus davor warnen konnte. Nennen wir es das absolut Böse, grünlich und ohne Form... Ein alter Priester offenbart das Geheimnis des Schläfers und ein junger Pfarrer hilft mit theoretischem Wissen im Kampf gegen das Böse. Was für ein fesselnder, was für ein grandioser Beginn! Leider aber kommt John Carpenters halber Klassiker aus dem Jahr 1987 langsam …
