Prince of Darkness Reviews

Nov 26, 2018
All in all, Prince of Darkness isn't in the top echelon of Carpenter films, but it's still a taut, terrifying affair anchored by a tour de force performance from Donald Pleasence.

Expect the unexpected from Prince of Darkness.

Close to a decade's experience in horror pays off, with Carpenter working the audience with jump-scares and revolting demises like an old pro.

John Carpenter seems to be hovering between cold-eyed mechanical fear-making and horror camp.

It all feels so small and inconsequential; words that definitely should not apply to a film seemingly about the End of the World.

It's deeply strange, awash in good ideas and filled with scene chewing performances from the likes of Donald Pleasence that still today seem more iconic than silly.

''Prince of Darkness'' is a real tour de force, and a welcome return.

It may not be a perfect film, and that cliffhanger ending is an obvious tease. But it's highly effective nightmare fodder, with a bonus side of skin-crawling repulsion.

Carpenter cria uma atmosfera de tenso palpvel, merecendo crditos tambm pela ambio de tentar combinar o puro terror com um elemento curioso de fico cientfica.

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

Still holds up as a creepy and atmospheric gem...

[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.

Carpenter's vision of collective spiritual unrest
Mar 26, 2009
Carpenter spends so much time turning the screws on the next scare that he completely forsakes his actors, who are already stranded with a shoddy script.

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.

Sometimes this doesn't make much sense, but it's pure Carpenter, a low-budget attempt that he controlled from conception to completion.

The claustrophobic terror generated by fluid camerawork and striking angles is reinforced by a narrative which builds slowly but surely towards a heart-racing climax.

Reasonably chilling.
