John Carpenter's 1987 cult classic heads to Blu-ray in September.

In an early announcement to retailers, Scream Factory will be releasing 'Prince of Darkness' on Blu-ray on September 24.

A group of graduate students and scientists uncover an ancient canister in an abandoned church, but when they open the container, they inadvertently unleash a strange liquid and an evil force on all humanity. As the liquid turns their co-workers into zombies, the remaining members realize they have released the most unspeakable of horrors, Satan himself, thus paving the way for the return of his father-the all-powerful anti-God.
