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.

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

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

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.

None of the performances are super, though Alice Cooper, the one-time rock star, makes an arresting cameo appearance as a mean-spirited zombie who stands outside the church, intimidating anyone who looks through the window.
