Cinema em Cena

Carpenter cria uma atmosfera de tensão palpável, merecendo créditos também pela ambição de tentar combinar o puro terror com um elemento curioso de ficção científica.

| Original Score: 4/5

Met on its own bonkers terms, Prince Of Darkness proves satisfying.

[Blu-ray Review] An elegantly photographed, legitimately frightening tale that does not shirk away from its controversial concepts. The high-def release of "Prince of Darkness" receives my full, unequivocal recommendation.

Eye for Film

Crossing the boundary at the outer reaches of the physical world where science meets superstition and reason collides with the irrational, it tells a tale as miraculous as the Bible and as dry as any technical text.

The setup is great; the payoff leaves you more than a little bit disappointed.

An okay rental. Didn't even come close to living up to its potential.

Flipside Movie Emporium

A minor Carpenter entry, to be sure, but still weird and freaky enough to make for solid B-horror viewing.

| Original Score: 4/5
