He’s one of the film world’s most undisputed masters of horror with a catalog of work that delivers classic after classic. That’s why whenever we get a chance to talk with legendary director John Carpenter, we’re on it like a dog on a bone.

Recently John took a few minutes to chat about his career, his opinion of the genre today, and what he’s been up to in his spare time...

“Of all my movies, I've always had a special fondness for The Thing. Dark and fierce, it was perhaps too much of a downer for audiences at the time. Appreciation for it has grown over the years, which makes me very happy.”

Everyone has their favorite John Carpenter movie, but ask around and the usual consensus is the Kurt Russell-starring remake of The Thing From Another World, which just hit its 30th anniversary. »
