Master of horror John Carpenter (Halloween, The Thing) directs this terrifying battle between mankind and the ultimate evil. A group of graduate students and scientists uncover an ancient canister in an abandoned church, but when they open it, they inadvertently unleash a strange liquid and an evil force on all of humanity. As the liquid turns their co-workers into zombies, the remaining members realize they have released the most unspeakable horror of them all. Terror mounts as the team must fight to save the world from a devilish fury that has been contained for over seven million years. Starring Donald Pleasence (Halloween), Jameson Parker (Simon & Simon), Lisa Blount (Needful Things), rock icon Alice Cooper (Roadie) and Victor Wong and Dennis Dun (both from Carpenter's Big Trouble In Little China), this "ingenious twist on classical occultism", (Science Fiction, Horror And Fantasy Film Review) will scare you witless!
