Dork Art: Prince of Darkness

Oh yeah!  Scream Factory is bringing another Carpenter classic back to life in Blu Ray this September; Prince of Darkness may not strike the heart of pop culture in the same fashion as The Thing, Escape From New York, or even They Live but it certainly takes a solid stab at the End of the World sub-genre.   Donald Pleasence certainly captures the proper grandiose dread, and it's fun to see Simon & Simon's Jameson Parker making his break for startdom - should have ditched that 'stache man.  And along with the stunning HD transfer we're also getting this nifty bit of art from Justin Osbourn.  Never thought this flick would get such a nice treatment.  Well done, Shout Factory.
