More after the break.....
While not every movie that I'll be reviewing is a horror movie, I think Carpenter interjects the style of horror films into many of his sci-fi and action films, and thus their inclusion here is appropriate. I'm also not going to be getting around to every film Carpenter directed and thus have had to selectively choose the movies I'm including. There are also tons of films and video games which Carpenter has worked on in other capacities that I just don't have the time or space to cover. On the other hand, I've got some fantastic reviews of other cool John Carpenter stuff such as toys, action figures, and prop replicas from his films. I'm also going to be trying to review the entire Halloween series, even though Carpenter only directed the first film and had limited involvement (or none) with most other installments in the series. Interested? I hope so! Let's make October 2013 a Halloween season to remember!
Oh, and by the way....
“When some wild-eyed, eight-foot-tall maniac grabs your neck, taps the back of your favorite head up against the barroom wall, and he looks you crooked in the eye and he asks you if ya paid your dues, you just stare that big sucker right back in the eye, and you remember what ol' Jack Burton always says at a time like that: "Have ya paid your dues, Jack?" "Yessir, the check is in the mail."
