John Carpenter Q&A: Why ‘Halloween’ Didn’t Need Sequels & What Scares The Master Of Horror

31 October 2014 2:35 PM, PDT | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

John Carpenter keeps his office in a converted hillside Hollywood home, on a quiet tree-lined street evocative of the sleepy suburb Michael Myers terrorized in 1978’s Halloween. Inside, the walls are lined with memories marking Carpenter’s four decades in film: original prints, awards, figurines of Kurt Russell as Snake Plisskin and the Creature From The Black Lagoon movie Carpenter spent years trying to make at Universal, a sculpture commemorating the prankster goosings on the set of his Big Trouble In Little China. Carpenter, 67, chain smokes as we revisit the films that made his career — starting with Halloween, a film originally titled The Babysitter Murders that the hungry young director took after making his debut with 1974 sci-fier Dark Star and honing his chops with 1976’s Assault On Precinct 13.

Carpenter speaks candidly of his successes and failures, and of the health issues that required emergency eye surgery in recent years »

Begin Again | Blu-ray Review

28 October 2014 11:00 AM, PDT | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

After having been picked up for a cool 7 million dollar and some change price tag by the Weinsteins at the Toronto Int. Film Festival back in 2013 and closing the Tribeca Film Fest the following year, in its July release, Begin Again performed quite well at the indie box office and generally well revered. A good will tour for a revitalizing look at Keira Knightley, as well as another exuberant performance from Mark Ruffalo. Luckily the scandal erupting over CeeLo Green happened afer it could have a potential detrimental effect on driving audiences away from the theater.

Though trudging through a somewhat ungainly and slightly anachronistic set-up, John Carney’s latest,  (originally titled Can a Song Save a Life?) manages to gain a momentous degree of charm in its latter half, ending on a note that’s as satisfyingly untethered as its opening moments are rigidly formulated. Inexplicably, Carney is also »

From Masked Madmen to Benevolent Alien Clones: The Impressive Range of Cult Film Director John Carpenter

9 October 2014 5:58 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

John Carpenter has produced an impressive body of work as a composer, director, producer, editor, and occasionally as a scriptwriter. He was a lifelong fan of science fiction novels, horror comic books, and classic westerns, he has managed to integrate thematic elements of all of these things into his work. Even though he’s experienced financial setbacks over the years, two generations of Hollywood and independent film makers have drawn inspiration from Carpenter’s work.

It was during his time at the University of Southern California’s School of Cinematic Arts, Carpenter debuted his theatrical release: Dark Star (1974). A black comedy interlaced with postmodernist science fiction, the movie features a team of astronauts on a special mission: to destroy unstable worlds to pave the way for space colonization. Unfortunately, nuclear Bomb # 20 (a large inflatable ball) develops a personality, and the astronauts have to convince it not to explode inside the ship. »

John Carpenter: Cult Horror’s Pre-eminent Renaissance Man

3 October 2014 8:24 AM, PDT | 28 Days Later Analysis | See recent 28 Days Later Analysis news »

John Carpenter grew up in Bowling Green, Kentucky and emerged as one of the world's most distinguished cult movie directors. Although he’s had his share of misfires, including The Ward (2011) and Memoirs of an Invisible Man (1992), he's still considered a “master of horror” thanks to his famous films like Halloween (1978), The Thing (1982) and Prince of Darkness (1987). Yet he also deserves acclaim for his less recognized works like Dark Star (1974), a low budget ($60,000 ) sci-fi comedy film that he created as a film student at USC. After film school, Carpenter wrote, scored and directed Assault on Precinct 13 (1976). The film told the story of a stakeout between the police and a street gang in an abandoned police precinct. The film outraged some for scenes of graphic violence, but it is still regarded as a an effective (although terse) thriller. It reinforced the notion that Carpenter could accomplish much with a small budget and unknown performers. »

The Essential Films and TV to Stream – September 8th 2014

8 September 2014 5:00 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

After last week’s news about Netflix securing The Blacklist for a record fee, a similar story came to light this week concerning the pre Batman prequel series Gotham. Now rather than getting it day and date after Us broadcast as per Breaking Bad and From Dusk Till Dawn, Gotham’s entire run will just arrive on Netflix after it’s finished its TV broadcast. Worse news is that this means you have to wait for Channel 5 to get their finger out and schedule it on one of their three channels and then muck it around the schedule just to confuse you further and for it to finish its run there. Kind of takes the wind out the sails doesn’t it? I wouldn’t expect to see Gotham on Netflix until this time next year at best but we will see.

In better news David Wain’s relatively well »

2014's most influential director: John Carpenter?

16 July 2014 11:54 AM, PDT | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

John Carpenter was once among Hollywood’s most prolific filmmakers. But the man who brought us such genre classics as Halloween, The Thing, Escape From New York, and Assault on Precinct 13 has only made one movie in the past 13 years—2010’s psychological thriller The Ward—and hasn’t troubled the box office in a big way since 1998’s James Woods-starring Vampires. (And Carpenter, 66, doesn’t sound like he’s in any rush to get back behind the camera: “I worked really hard for more years than I’d like to count, but now I can pick and choose things, »

How To Save a Life: Carney’s Anticipated American Film a Pleasantly Loveable

Though trudging through a somewhat ungainly and slightly anachronistic set-up, John Carney’s latest, Begin Again (originally titled Can a Song Save a Life?) manages to gain a momentous degree of charm in its latter half, ending on a note that’s as satisfyingly untethered as its opening moments are rigidly formulated. Inexplicably, Carney is also able to squeeze some magic from a cast that seems staggeringly opposed to such a stunt, at least judging from a multitude of similar packaged deals in a squalid market of workmanlike indie films featuring such flora and fauna. While the music is hardly as catchy as the Academy Award winning compilations from his 2006 film, Once, a buoyant attitude sometimes fills in here, at least enough to make for an emotionally satisfying final act.

Blumhouse turned down new John Carpenter project

11 May 2014 11:02 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

John Carpenter has had a new film project turned down by Blumhouse Productions...

News

It's been a few years now since the mighty John Carpenter directed his last movie, The Ward. The film wasn't a bad one, although even the most ardent Carpenter fan would concede it's some way from his peak. Still, we'd like more John Carpenter films, even if there doesn't appear to be a new one on the way at the minute.

Carpenter himself has been chatting to Fangoria, ahead of being interviewed by Robert Rodriguez for an episode of The Director's Chair on the El Rey network in the Us. When questioned as to whether he would be interested in working with companies that give film-makers freedom in exchange for low budgets, Carpenter revealed he had gone down that route. "There's two writers that I'm friends with and we pitched a project to Blumhouse, and they turned us down. »

The Quiet Ones - Witness the Film's True Events

24 April 2014 12:37 PM, PDT | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

This weekend's horror offering, Hammer's The Quiet Ones (review), is supposedly based upon true events. So we figured we'd look around and come up with the actual video of said events. Curious? Take a look!

The film draws inspiration from the Philip Experiment of 1972, in which Canadian academic researchers tried to prove that telekinesis, poltergeists, and the like manifest solely through the human mind.

A quick trip to YouTube yielded some fruits for us paranormal-loving souls. The video you see below contains actual footage from the aforementioned experiment, and honestly? It's pretty damned interesting. Check it out, and tell us what you make of it!

The Quiet Ones is written and directed by John Pogue (Quarantine 2) and stars Jared Harris ("Mad Men," The Ward), Sam Claflin (Snow White and the Huntsman, The Hunger Games: Catching Fire), Erin Richards ("Breaking In," "Being Human"), Olivia Cooke ("The Secret of Crickley Hall," "The »

Not Safe For Work: 13 Gruesome Decapitations

16 April 2014 8:30 PM, PDT | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

Typically I’d line an article of this nature up with a nifty little introduction. This time around, I’m just going to hit you with something of a disclaimer: Compiling this list was extremely challenging. There are countless scenes depicting heads being severed from bodies, in countless different pictures.

And quite a few of them could easily be considered strong enough to make this list. Ultimately it comes down to personal preference. You’re likely to agree with some of these choices (there’re a few safe calls, I admit), and you’re probably just as likely to disagree with a few.

If you’re feeling as though I missed a masterpiece, drop a line. Who doesn’t love watching cranial destruction?
