Now Playing’s like a genie in a bottle…you’ve got to donate right away!

Master of horror John Carpenter brought us the modern slasher film with Halloween, and arguably the best alien invasion film with The Thing, but in the late 80’s the horror director brought us zombified homeless people and Satan in a bottle!  In Prince of Darkness, a trippy, apocalyptic story, scientists and priests team up to try to stop the end of the world, guided by a voice from the future.  Is this another Carpenter masterpiece, or should this genie stay in his bottle?  Listen to find out!
