From Forum With No Name's Guilty Pleasures thread:
John Carpenter's Prince of Darkness (1987) makes even less sense than The Fog (Satan as a canister of swirling melon juice?), but takes a page (I suspect, anyway) off of Gregory Benford's novel Timescape to fashion a clunkily effective zombie/Satanic-cult/end-of-the-world science-fiction/horror flick that, for minutes at a time, have you actually worrying for the characters (despite their cardboard nature). Plus there's this video footage (ostensibly from the future) that may just be one of the creepiest ever recorded for a feature film.
Ooh! Ooh! Look what I found!
From Richard Harrington of the Washington Post: 'The Prince of Darkness' stinks. It too deserves to be shut up in a canister for 7 million years.
ChrisJ: PRINCE OF DARKNESS is a far better film (than The Fog). The film is ridiculous, but it's entertaining from start to finish withlots of 'you've got to be kidding me... oh this is a hoot... " moments.
I think Prince of Darkness had an even more dire reputation than The Fog did, but googling around, I find it's built up quite a cult rep. Who would've thunk? I do love that flick.
