  • Prince of Darkness is a real tour de force, and a welcome return. show more

  • John Carpenter's Prince of Darkness gets off to an intriguing start. But then the movie loses its way. show more

  • The sole mystery is the apparent collapse of Carpenter's skills as a storyteller. Prince of Darkness is shapeless and almost utterly lacking in rhythm, as if it had been slashed and then badly reassembled, like a Carpenter victim. [28 Oct 1987, p.D8] show more
