Lamberto Bava's rarest horror film with the puppy named Demon.
14 April 2010 | by (Chyby, Poland) – See all my reviews

"The Prince of Terror" was never officially released on VHS and DVD.It's available only on third-generation bootleg copies.It's a crying shame,because it's certainly one of the best Bava's horror movies made in late 80's.The film tells the story of an infamous Romanian horror director named Vincent Omen,who calls himself The Prince of Terror.During the filming of his latest horror movie Vincent fires his scriptwriter and a former friend,who plans cruel and bloody revenge on Omen and his family.After family's dinner the blood begins to flow...Pretty entertaining and gory Lamberto Bava's home invasion movie with gruesome decapitation,skinned dog,a hand impaling and a killer golf ball doing some juicy eyeball mutilation.The gore effects by Sergio Stivaletti are great as is Simon Boswell's score.Check out this silly flick.7 out of 10.
