Scream Factory Unveils All New Extras For PRINCE OF DARKNESS!

Prince-Of-DarknessNobody does John Carpenter’s films justice on home video like Scream Factory.  They’ve already released 4 titles directed or produced by him and have 2 more slated for release before the year ends.  One of those is his 1987 cult classic Prince of Darkness.  It’s a film that reunites Carpenter with actor Donald Pleasance, who starred in Carpenter’s breakout film Halloween.  These new extras feature a new interview and commentary with John Carpenter himself (he can be tough to get ahold of for these things nowadays).  In addition, rock legend Alice Cooper and frequent composing collaborator Alan Howarth have interviews.  Also appearing is another episode of the always informative Horrors Hallowed Grounds series (will Robert Russler show up yet again?).  Also, if you act now and preorder from Scream Factory’s official site (click here) you will receive an exclusive 18×24 poster featuring the new artwork.  Prince of Darkness comes out September 24, which for Blu-ray collectors an d fans should be “John Carpenter Day”.  Continue on to get all the details!
