It is evil… It has awakened.

Master of horror John Carpenter (Halloween, The Thing) directs this terrifying battle between mankind and the ultimate evil.

A group of graduate students and scientists uncover an ancient canister in an abandoned church, but when they open it, they inadvertently unleash a strange liquid and an evil force on all of humanity. As the liquid turns their co-workers into zombies, the remaining members realize they have released the most unspeakable horror of them all. Terror mounts as the team must fight to save the world from a devilish fury that has been contained for over seven million years.

Starring Donald Pleasence (Halloween), Jameson Parker (Simon & Simon), Lisa Blount (Needful Things), rock icon Alice Cooper and Victor Wong and Dennis Dun (both from Carpenter’s Big Trouble In Little China), this “ingenious twist on classical occultism” (Science Fiction, Horror and Fantasy Film Review) will scare you witless!

  1. Wow, glad I watched it AFTER watching the movie.
    These fucking old trailers…man, they show too much.

  2. John Carpenter's works were way ahead of the times. One of the best movies John Carpenter ever made. I purchased it and watched it over and over again. Like The Book of Revelation, it fits our time period now.

    He definitely knew about the prince and the darkness coming with him..
    One should put this down as one of the best movie cult classics. And the entire ensemble cast he/John selected including, Donald Pleasence, Jamison Parker and Alice Cooper is amazing…šŸ˜˜šŸ’™šŸ’™šŸ’™šŸ‘šŸ‘€šŸ˜‹ā˜ šŸ’€

  3. A gorgeous trailer for a gorgeous John Carpenter's movie. Donald Pleasence, Victor Wong and Lisa Blount was so sexy back in day. Rest in peace, Donald, Victor and Lisa. Amen.

  4. Hellow?…..hellooow?… I got a message for you, and youre not gonna like it……Pray for death !

  5. Brilliant movie… always wondered why there was never a reboot of it, hopefully if there is then Carpenter will be behind the camera, I love all his old school horror movies.

  6. This is the way how to make trailers, today trailers barely show anything from the movie. No trailer can spoil anything, cause trailer is one experience and movie is another experience. When we live in the moment with no expectation everything becomes a surprise.

  7. Prince of darkness that walks through the rays of light, to this beat of vampire I'm the prototype the shapeshifting mirror image flash photo type to everlasting indiginous red blood O type!

  8. Wait, they show that scene at the end where the main guy reaches out to the mirror… But in this trailer he actually touches it and then it breaks! Does this mean an alternate ending was filmed but never used?

  9. Besides for the exception of "They Live", this production marked the downfall of Carpenter's work. It feels like this film was put together by a 5th grader. Just a very, very weak film with a boring plot that's been done a million times over. There's no real character development here at all. At no point did I care if anyone was killed off. The zombie homeless people staring at the research crew from outside the house while standing in a perfect straight line? Killer green goo dripping from a giant glass jar?? Gtfooh. Anyone who likes this film is simply kidding themselves. Prince Of Darkness is one of the worst horror films ever made.

  10. to this day, i still find this horror photoplay one of the scariest & it brings back the first day i watched it.
    freshman in high school, indeed.
