In the first installment of our exclusive Indie Horror Month interview with the legendary John Carpenter, we left off with the Master of Horror discussing the backlash he experienced after his 1982 horror/sci-fi thriller The Thing and what kind of sequel he would have liked to have seen.
For Part Two we pick up right where we left off in Carpenter's career and hear more about what he went through while working on various independent projects including They Live, Prince of Darkness and Village of the Damned as well as how the studio system left him feeling burned out after working on films like Big Trouble in Little China, Memoirs of an Invisible Man and Ghosts of Mars.
Carpenter went on to discuss his return to feature filmmaking with The Ward and his thoughts about how technology has changed the industry over the last 30 years.
