THX 1138
1971, Warner Bros., 88 min, USA, Dir: George Lucas

George Lucas' first (and most adult) picture outdoes 1984 and Brave New World in painting a bleak, dehumanized future where every person is given pills to quiet emotions, eliminate sex drive, increase work production and prevent the questioning of authority. With Robert Duvall, Donald Pleasance.


PRINCE OF DARKNESS
1987, Universal, 102 min, USA, Dir: John Carpenter

When a group of physics graduate students are contacted by a priest to investigate a vat seemingly abandoned in the basement of a dilapidated Los Angeles church, they have little idea of the true evil inhabiting the vat's phosphorescent green liquid. As the Satan-possessed liquid comes to life and wreaks lethal havoc, the students - the surviving ones, that is - must confront and somehow surmount the work of the Devil himself. With Donald Pleasance, Lisa Blount, Jameson Parker and Alice Cooper.
