You take Carpenter's filmography and put it in a giant 1,500 lb blender, mix with some green goo, and hit puree. The result? Prince of Darkness (1987), a supernatural quantum physics siege film that has as many high minded science fiction ideas as it does characters. But can a director who's worked his way to major studio projects go back to a puny 3 million dollar budget? Can you slow burn an entire movie? And where does Alice Cooper fit in?

All this and more on the latest episode of Tracks of the Damned, the horror film commentary track podcast, PLUS Patrick answers a listener question about the state of big budget studio horror. This is not a dream! This is a signal broadcasted electronically from the year 1-9-9-9!
