"This is probably the best in the Carpenter/Howarth association.The strict usage of synths to produce the broad spectrum of sound in 1987 is amazing!Carpenter's simple thematic (but effective) style is brought to scary life aided by Alan Howarth's studio wizardry.I have to say that the soundtrack is better than the mediocre film."
One of Carpenter's finest.

"The score for John Carpenter's 'Prince of Darkness' is one of the best ever written for an 80's horror film. Its dark, sinister tones implied some kind of threat to the main characters even though nothing frightening was happening on the screen. 'Hell Breaks Loose' is undoubtedly the most frightening track as the characters find themselves in serious trouble, with some of their colleagues becoming zombies and coming after them. The music creates an atmosphere of terror which is well reflected in what's happening on the screen. It's one of the hardest Carpenter scores to get - and also the best."
