Zavvi - The Home of Pop Culture

John Carpenter’s 1987 cult classic Prince of Darkness has been stunningly restored in 4K.
Deep in the basement of an abandoned church, once run by a sinister religious sect, lies a strange bottle of green liquid being investigated by a group of local theoretic physics students. But as the night draws in the students soon realise that the relic holds a dark and powerful force beyond their control. A force that could well be the essence of pure evil: the remains of Satan himself.

The 2018 restoration of Prince of Darkness was made from the original camera negative. A full 4k 16bit Dolby Vision workflow was applied to create a 4K DCP, UHD version and a new HD version which were produced with the same high technological standards as today’s biggest international film releases.
The restoration and new UHD version was colour graded and approved in Los Angeles by the Cinematographer, Gary B. Kibbe (ASC).
 

Extras include:

  • Malevolent: Unearthing John Carpenter’s PRINCE OF DARKNESS: A brand new retrospective documentary produced by Ballyhoo Motion Pictures and featuring interviews with Cinematographer Gary Kibbe, actor Peter Jason, actor Alice Cooper, composer Alan Howarth, script supervisor Sandy King, visual effects supervisor Robert Grasmere, stunt coordinator Jeff Imada, Carpenter biographer John Muir, film historian C. Courtney Joyner, music historian Daniel Schweiger and Producer Larry Carpenters.

A classic

Being a huge John Carpenter fan I picked this up as I hadn't seen this film and I will admit it deserves to be up there amongst the ranks of Halloween and The Thing. This is a John Carpenter classic and definitely recommend if you love his other films! 4K transfer is fantastic and the sound was superb too! A definite must own!

Prince of Darkness 4k uhd

One of my favorite Carpenters titles.Sound and picture are really great.

Cult classic

There is a reason that this is a cult classic, carpenter at his best, a good steady pace all the way through and story to match, the 4k transfer looks great and with an atmospheric soundtrack this movie is one to own, looks better today than it did back then, if you love John Carpenter movies and haven't seen this then your missing out
