Blank Check with Griffin and David Wiki

Prince of Darkness is episode 345 focusing on the 1987 film of the same name and part of the They Podcast miniseries on the films of John Carpenter. Posted October 10, 2021.


Every filmmaker gets one “Satan in a jar in a basement” movie and this is John Carpenter’s! Keith Phipps (The Next Picture Show Podcast) joins us to chat “the anti-God,” fictional British scientist Bernard Quatermass, and young David Sims’ humble beginnings as an “It’s Always Sunny” recapper at the AVClub. The boys also establish that Ben loves “wet evil” and that the special effects makeup artist on PRINCE OF DARKNESS also worked with Griffin on DRAFT DAY! [1]
