PRINCE OF DARKNESS / It Is Evil. It Is Real. It Is Awakening! - 1987
Here's one I saw at the theater back in the day, I personally thought I got ripped off... Anyway, a sinister secret has been kept in the basement of an abandoned Los Angeles church for many years. After the death of a priest belonging to a mysterious sect, another priest opens the door to the basement and discovers a vat containing a weird green liquid. The priest contacts a group of physics graduate students and their teacher to investigate the ominous container, they go there to stay until its purpose is examined. Unfortunately, they discover that the liquid contains the essence of Satan himself, and they also find that he will release his father, an all-powerful Anti-God! The liquid later comes to life, turning some of the students into zombies!
This one stars Donald (THE MUTATIONS) Pleasence, Jameson (SIMON & SIMON) Parker, Victor (PAPER DRAGONS) Wong, Lisa (DEAD AND BURIED) Blount, Dennis (YEAR OF THE DRAGON) Dun, Susan (THEY LIVE) Blanchard and more...
There's the church on the left. The Priest and Prof. Birack show up in a stretch limo, they go inside to see what's going on there...
The two find the mysterious room with the large vat of green liquid. They peruse the text from a book they find, it has confusing Latin writings with illustrations.
Alice Cooper plays one of the homeless people that seem to be under some kind of strange influence. Man, Alice is one weird looking dude!
Here's a shot of some of the grub the homeless are chowing down on... Hey, you hungry? Help yourself to a few maggots, I'm full...
Things start going south when one of the students is in the room with the vat of liquid, when, the liquid flows to the ceiling and then squirts into her mouth...
There's a meeting of the gang where a battle plan to uncover the secrets of the liquid is discussed. Love that big old boom box!
Then, the infected girl starts passing the liquid around!
And then, another girl is now typing out this creepy message at super high speed!
The son of the Anti-Christ shows up with a message, he then dissolves like the radioactive people in THE H-MAN, but instead of slime, he's full of black beetles...
It's this guy's turn, to show everyone he's insane, he sticks a sharp object into his neck!
Do you think this zombie dude's gonna to get his head bashed in?..
Things are going straight to Hell, just about all the students are nuts and out for blood!
I guess, the Queen Zombie, is horrified by her own face as she looks into the mirror on her makeup compact. The priest takes an ax and lops her head off. So, she simply picks it up and puts it back where it kinda belongs, and viola, she's back in business!
Dad's on his way back to the physical plane.... In a last ditch effort, the Priest tosses the ax into the encasement, breaking the glass!
And, all the evil goes poof and the zombos quit moving around.
In the aftermath, Brian is having flashbacks and starting to act a little weird... You should probably check in again on Wednesday when Eegah!! will bring on more hurt, here, at The Dungeon!..
