You're such an inspiration for the ways that I will never, ever choose to be.


    Yeah it’s got to be a bitter pill to swallow when your work is far before it’s time, bombs at box office but is revered and so inspirational like The Thing etc.. How the holy fucks did the far inferior Vampires pull in more $ than either The Thing or They Live ? The man is or was a true visionary who was mostly consistent setting the bar in 2 genres I love, he’s 66 now so I really dont see anymore Classics from him but he could surprise us. If anyone could pull out another gem it’s Carpenter. The Ward was better then most like it, and that was after a 9 year self induced hiatus .


    I clicked one of the videos on site and my anti virus detected malware anybody else have a probem?

    I’m a HUGE JC / SKC fan! My favorite movie he’s directed is Halloween. Which is generally the popular answer, for good reason! But I’m curious to know, what is John’s favorite movie he’s directed, in his career?? And why? xo

  • UsmanH

    Looking forward to hear Carpenter.

  • The Buz

    I want Carpenter to do a straight Western. I think that’d be a lot of fun.

  • kiddcapone

    Awesome sauce…

    I’ll start off by making this clear, John Carpenter IS a god of filmmaking and my favorite director. Escape from New York has been my all-time favorite movie since the early 80’s. I’ve seen Big Trouble in Little China a few hundred times, I have a Halloween poster art tattoo, and I adore The Thing. I never get sick of watching The Fog, They Live, or Prince of Darkness. Even Carpenter’s lesser films are still more entertaining than most directors best efforts.

    With all that being said, it pains me to listen to present day Carpenter speak. He’s my hero, but the man has packed up shop a long time ago and doesn’t give a shit any longer. Of course he has that right, he’s earned it, but it’s so depressing listening to how he couldn’t care less about the works us fans hold in the highest regard. As long as he’s getting a paycheck, every film has a price to be bastardized, and he’ll just let it happen while he plays video games, smokes cigarettes, and enjoys his status as currently irrelevant in the industry with no desire to once again be great.

    No one is rooting for a Carpenter comeback more than this guy. I would love to see him add a few more chapters (or at least one final triumph) to his amazing legacy, but at this point, it’s more of wish in one hand, shit in the other, and see which one gets filled first…

      I think he’s sick of hearing about Halloween more than anything. If I kept getting the same damn questions over and over again about the same film for years, I’d be pretty irritated as well. I can also completely understand why the guy is burnt out. Most of his films were box office failures during their time; with the one exception being Halloween. Which is the one film he’s stated is his least favorite. I can also imagine just how physically and emotional taxing directing a film can be.

      I’m just glad the guy’s not a complete recluse.

    • MonsterMash

      You know, Carpenter’s my favorite as well, but I see what your saying. The Thing is the reason I’m into horror in the first place, but he’s content with retirement it seems. Regardless, he’s done so much and touched so many in a positive way with his films, I’m just happy he’s still at least somewhat in-touch with the horror community. Constantly talking about stuff you did years ago would wear on a guy. Will that Darkchylde thing still ever happen?

    • aliensharkboy

      The man’s talented! Even The Ward, though suffering from an atrocious twist, still showed signs of Carpenter’s excellence.

      I’ve never met him myself, but several of my friends have, and they’ve all come back saying that he was among the grumpiest celebrities they’d ever met.

      That aside, it’s absolutely awesome DC have these two booked for the show! XD Looking forward to it.

    • frank_dracman

      Yup, just like Rami, he’s earned the right to fuck off and do whatever he wants. He gave us some of the best movies ever made so even if he wants to direct softcore skin flicks he’ll still have my admiration.


    Carpenter is a Horror GOD!!!
