Prince of Darkness / Halloween: 35th Anniversary Edition

For horror, Carpenter build 'em best.


Horror

Rod Lott
So in John Carpenter's Prince of Darkness, a priest (Donald Pleasence, Halloween) calls up a professor (Victor Wong, Big Trouble in Little China) and says, "Hey, I've got this 2,000-year-old jar in the basement of this Catholic church downtown. Get this: It has the devil inside! Whaddaya say you round up some physics students to spend the weekend here and see if they can't figure out whassup?"

Body Bags / Assault on Precinct 13

Tales from the Carp.


Horror

Rod Lott
John Carpenter is a hoot as the host of Body Bags, a 1993 horror anthology that was to Showtime what Tales from the Crypt was to HBO at the time, only not a continuing series. Playing the pasty-faced coroner who intros the telepic's three stories, Carpenter also directs the first two, leaving the final to Texas Chainsaw impresario Tobe Hooper.
