" "Suppose what your faith has said is essentially correct. Suppose there is a universal mind controlling everything, a god willing the behavior of every subatomic particle. Well, every particle has an anti-particle, its mirror image, its negative side. Maybe this universal mind resides in the mirror image instead of in our universe as we wanted to believe. Maybe he's anti-god, bringing darkness instead of light." Written by John Carpenter Music by John Carpenter and Alan Howarth Cinematography "

"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"
