Somewhere down in the graves underneath the old church, the Sleeper has been sitting tight for quite a long time. For a long time, to be exact, following the time when Christ came to Earth to caution us of its presence. It is Absolute Evil, and now its time has come back once more. Here it is currently, green and indistinct, spinning around inside the goliath glass tube like zucchini in a blender. The tube is bolted, yet X-beams uncover that it is locked from within.
An old minister uncovers the mystery of the Sleeper, and a more youthful cleric enrolls a hypothetical physicist to help in the fight as the Sleeper stirs. The physicist accumulates a gathering of graduate students, and they move into the old church, with their PCs and collapsing bunks, to do fight with wickedness. What’s more, at to begin with, every one of this is extremely charming, as John Carpenter’s “Den of Darkness” gets off to a captivating begin.
Be that as it may, then the film loses its direction. Rather than a fight amongst science and the heavenly, between the conviction of the unmistakable world and the disarray of the subatomic world, what we get is another of those motion pictures in which the groups of the great folks are involved by the shrewd compel, in a steady progression, until the last fierce conclusion.
