Description: A sinister secret has been kept in the basement of an abandoned Los Angeles church for many years. With the death of a priest belonging to a mysterious sect, another priest opens the door to the basement and discovers a vat containing a green liquid. The priest contacts a group of physics graduate students to investigate it. Unfortunately, they discover that the liquid contains the essence of Satan himself, and they also discover that he will release HIS father - an all-powerful Anti-God! The liquid later comes to life itself, turning some of the students into zombies as the Devil comes forward to release his father. Will these ... (more)

"Plot: An ancient receptacle protected by a sect of priests is investigated by a group of physics students who soon succumb to its influence. An influence that may be the very source of belief in the Devil. The lines between tradition and science blur in this thickly atmospheric ode to Nigel Kneale's work. Carpenter, evokes a sense of pervasive dread and conjures up some exceptionally memorable horror set pieces that transcend the tight budget. Complete with an ominous score and one helluva chi"

"30.5. Blu-ray Uusintakatselu. Ajatella, John Carpenterilta kuvaustyön ja musiikin oppikirjaesimerkki. Tarina on vähän höpsö (nestemäinen belsebuubi on ainakin omaperäinen idea), enkä löydä siitä ilman väkisin keksimistä suuria teemoja tai kysymyksiä, sen tehtävä on olla good ol' fashioned tunnelmallinen ja viihdyttävä kauhutarina. Olin tämän katsonut niinkin äskettäin, kuin vuonna 2011, eikä minulla ollut hajuakaan tästä."

"Päivän teema, kirkon kellariin jemmattu perkele/helvetti jatkuu vanhalla suosikilla, Carpenterin Pimeyden Valtiaalla. Erittäin kutkuttavasta konseptista* huolimatta tämä kostautui pettymykseksi. Jokseenkin klassista käytävillä haahuilu -kauhua muutamalla hyvällä visuaalilla (unen muodossa lähetetty VHSmäinen profetia, jossa kirkon portista hoipertelee perkele & orfeusmainen peili porttina tuonpuoleiseen -juttu). *Hyvin hyvin hataran maallikon käsitykseni mukaan, modernin fysiikan l"

" Bonus film watched after Children of the Corn. Another late evening flick with my girlfriend, trying to show her some of the classics in the genre. She liked The Thing and In The Mouth of Madness so more Carpenter seemed like a good idea. It’s clear this isn’t as strong of a film as the other two, but it was still a good time. The concepts here are all solid, even if it’s hard to back that up with believable scientific dialog. I can imagine this story as a compelling miniseries where w"

"Carpenter's ode to Nigel Kneale is quite possibly my favorite of his works but back when I first saw it I had no idea who either of those people were. With its mix of science and religion and its dense atmosphere and eerie visuals, Prince of Darkness scard the living daylights out of me as a kid but, boy, did I love it. "
