Satan has roamed our world in several forms: Adolph Hitler, Russell Brand, and -- in this case -- as a cannister of swirling green goop determined to plunge the universe into eternal darkness.

Antichrist proponent-turned-filmmaker John Carpenter followed his flawless BIG TROUBLE IN LITTLE CHINA with the movie that would prove to be the most wrongly underappreciated cinematic hell-slammer of the ‘80s. The mighty Donald Pleasence (Doc Loomis in the HALLOWEEN series) is the short, shaky, bald priest facing off against evil incarnate. Good luck.

Not content to merely wipe our species off the map, Carpenter's liquid Lucifer delights in grisly possession suicides, telekinetic skin-flaying, weather/mind control and transmitting deeply haunting television signals from mankind's inescapable non-future.

Relentlessly vicious and bleak, this is also probably one of the top three movies to feature a scientist saying a swear word before being impaled by a hobo played by Alice Cooper. (Zack)
