Master horror movie director John Carpenter (The Thing, Escape From New York) conjures up hordes of beetles, ants, worms, zombies and Satan himself to wage war on mankind in this unspeakably terrifying fright feature. When a group of graduate students and scientists discover an ancient canister containing an evil-looking liquid in an abandoned church, all hell breaks loose. Shortly after the discovery the liquid seems to come alive, generating an evil energy that systematically turns members of the group into zombies. But even worse, it releases Satan, thus paving the way for the return of his father—the all-powerful Anti-God. The terror mounts as only two members of the group are left to save an innocent world from a devilish fury that has been waiting seven million years to explode. The Prince of Darkness stars Donald Pleasence, Lisa Blount, Victor Wong and Jameson Parker.
