I’ve got super good news for you if you have a fascination or fetish with black beetles! When it comes to scenes from horror movies that give me the creeps, I can usually count on anything associated with a numerous amount bugs to do the trick. So a big thank you and also a big fuck you to John Carpenter’s 1987 flick, Prince Of Darkness is in order. Although the movie as a whole is hit-or-miss, there are a ton of creepy scenes to make your skin crawl. None more so than the moment below when Wyndham (Robert Grasmere) returns from the dead with a disturbing auto-tuned voice and a bunch of beetle friends in tow.
Wow – his head just literally rolled right off, huh? Well, I guess if I was a walking corpse with thousands of beetles inhabiting my body, my head probably wouldn’t stand a chance of remaining intact either. Not only do the bugs creep me out, but when Wyndham says “Pray for death…..“, I feel the urge to urinate in my pants a little. Being that Halloween is upon us, Prince Of Darkness is definitely required viewing on the night of October 31st. Scream Factory recently released an amazing Blu-ray version with loads of extras, so get on over to their site and grab it if you want. Now, because you’ve been good throughout the post, I’ll tease you with half of Jameson Parker’s mustache from the movie.
