      Prince of Darkness Reviews

      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.

      Full Review | Original Score: 4/5 | Oct 25, 2018

      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.

      Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/5 | Sep 26, 2013

      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.

      Prince of Darkness contains the ingredients for a much better movie.

      Full Review | Original Score: 2/4 | Jan 1, 2000

      "The Prince of Darkness' stinks." It too deserves to be shut up in a canister for 7 million years.

      Do you think we mischaracterized a critic's review?
