John Carpenter

It's impossible to talk about horror films, specifically the slasher genre, without mentioning director John Carpenter, the man behind the classic Halloween. Plus, the filmmaker made waves with his remake of The Thing and cult classics like They Live. Though the later years of his career haven't offered much in the vein of quality, there's no denying the man's influence over horror, and filmmakers in general, working today. So how about taking a look back at Carpenter's prolific career with an hour-long documentary called John Carpenter: Fear Is Just The Beginning. It's from 2004, but it's still very interesting. Watch it!

Here's John Carpenter: Fear Is Just The Beginning via The Film Stage:

Complete with interviews from collaborators like Jamie Lee Curtis (Halloween), Kurt Russell (Escape from New York) and the equally influential horror filmmaker George Romero, this is a truly fascinating look at a filmmaker who is usually private, but takes the time to talk about the art of film, his cinematic inspirations, the musical background that helped him craft the iconic Halloween theme and more. Cool?

    That was really good. Strange to think 'The Thing' got panned so badly.

      That is a pretty awesome movie. The right mix of comedy, gunslinger, kungfu and supernatural.
