Ahh another classic by Carpenter that i most recently started to see its brilliance.

Quote :
A priest (Donald Pleasence) invites Professor Howard Birack (Victor Wong) and a group of academics and students to investigate a mysterious cylinder in the basement of an abandoned Los Angeles church. The cylinder contains a constantly swirling, green liquid.
After researching the text found next to the cylinder, it is discovered that the liquid is actually Satan himself. The text also reveals that Satan is the son of an even more powerful force of evil, an Anti-God, who is trapped in another dimension. The liquid itself appears sentient, producing increasingly complex data that is revealed by computer decoding to include differential equations.
Over the period of two days, the liquid possesses the group one by one and uses them against the remaining survivors. Their attempts to escape the building are prevented by a mass of possessed street people surrounding it, who kill two of the group. The survivors also find themselves sharing a recurring dream, apparently a tachyon transmission sent as a warning from the future year of 1999, showing a shaky video sequence of a shadowy figure emerging from the front of the church

Once again a top notch role by the always great Donald Pleasence
