When compiling a list of movies to watch on the mother of all spooky occasions, it's impossible not to throw a few John Carpenter flicks on there. One of California's most beautiful cities has just recognized his genius!
With so many horror classics and cult favorites getting announced for Blu-ray release in 2013, one bit of news that has mostly flown under the radar is Twilight Time's plans to give John Carpenter’s 1983 adaptation of Stephen King’s Christine a Blu-ray upgrade a month from now.
There's nothing quite like turning back the clock and revisiting some of your favorite classic horror on the big screen on original 35mm prints. Only a shitter wouldn't appreciate that.
His name may not ring a bell at first, but chances are you're quite familiar with the work of character actor Roberts Blossom. Sadly, Mr. Blossom passed away last Friday in Santa Monica, California, at the age of 87. The New York Times posted quite a nice tribute to the quirky actor, excerpts of which follow:
The guys at Cinema Cool have been on a bit of a hiatus since last summer, but they're coming out of "retirement", as it were, to host a midnight screening of John Carpenter's classic Christine tomorrow night (Friday, March 4th) at the Nuart Theatre in West Los Angeles.
