Prince of Darkness Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

Prince of Darkness is presented on Blu-ray courtesy of Shout! Factory's imprint Scream Factory, with an AVC encoded 1080p transfer in 2.35:1. Perhaps ironically, for being a frankly lesser entry in the John Carpenter canon, this is one of the more impressive looking Blu-ray releases we've seen from Shout!'s recent foray through Carpenter's films. Fine grain, while very fine, is evident throughout the presentation, but the most commanding thing about this transfer is its sharpness and luminously saturated color. The film still has some of the issues it had in its theatrical exhibition in terms of being a tad too dark at times (one important scene involving fingers penetrating a mirror is still a bit hard to make out), but generally speaking, the image here is clear, precise and artifact free. Some of the practical effects show their age, but the make-up effects look especially good in this new high definition presentation.


Prince of Darkness Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

Prince of Darkness was another Carpenter feature initially released in Ultra Stereo, and its original mix is presented here both in DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 and DTS-HD Master Audio 2.0. The 5.1 mix is notable for a much improved low end, something that helps the thumping synth driven score by Carpenter and Alan Howarth really pulse with energy. Surround activity tends to be limited mostly to the score and occasional sound effects, though there are some nicely immersive moments, including a late in the film scramble to get out of a confessional where the chopping actions on one side and encroaching possessed demons on the other create a nice whirlwind of sonic activity. Dialogue is cleanly presented, which actually may not be a good thing, considering the dialogue. Fidelity is excellent and dynamic range is very wide.
