John Carpenter’s ‘Prince of Darkness’ Brings its Evil to 4K UHD Blu-Ray

by Trey Hilburn III

John Carpenter’s very under-seen film about a jar-o-Satan and pure unfiltered evil is making its way to 4K. Prince of Darkness is easily among my personal favorite films from the director. It features a heck of a performance from Donald Pleasence and even features a creepy stab at the screen from Alice Cooper.

The full list of features includes:

Customers who order directly from ShoutFactory.com will be able to choose from two exclusive offers:

·        Prince of Darkness Collector’s Edition (4k UHD/Blu-Ray™) plus an 18” x 24” rolled poster reproduction of the original theatrical art. The posters will be made at a limited quantity.

The A-side includes the 2017 version of the main title and the B-side contains a never-before-released recording of “Love at a Distance” recorded by the trio in 2020.
