Laidback Carpenter directing freaks
15 March 2002 | by (Norway) – See all my reviews

This short documentary takes you to the set of 'John Carpenter's Ghosts of Mars' on location in the Mexican desert. A lot of stunt- guys prepare for being blown up, beat up, set on fire and hit by trucks. The make up artists put on ghastly make up, and the main actors, Cube, Duvall and Henstridge, are seen practicing their kung fu skills. All this taking place while a seemingly laidback and cigarette-smoking John Carpenter looks like he's having a lot of fun. The actual film 'Ghosts of Mars' could and should have been better/scarier. Look out for Carpenter- regular Peter Jason's death scene. Carpenter is a great guy, and although this documentary takes you behind the scenes of one his least fascinating projects, somehow the good, old Carpenter- feeling is still there.
