Hooray! One of our group members will be gone for a week or two, so we won't be able to do it for a little while, but that'll give us plenty of time to prepare. Thank you so much! I'm really excited about this! :D

@matt
I was sure you'd like it. I particularly liked some of the quotable parts of it, like "He wrote me that way" and "Did I ever tell you my favourite colour is blue?"... :-D

Just be sure to drop a link to the episode when it's actually done and up, I'd say.

I'm glad you liked it. John Carpenter sure is one of the best minds in horror. It's a shame he didn't direct many of good things after "In the Mouth of Madness". Maybe I enjoyed "Escape from L.A.", "Vampires", even "Ghosts of Mars", but these are guilty pleasures, not first-rate pieces of cinematography. I'd kill someone to be sure his new movie "Darkchylde" will be good. It looks like nothing can go wrong, but you never know...

I'm also excited from Carpenter's recent statement about the making of videogame. It seems he liked the works on "F.E.A.R. 3".

I also really liked Carpenter's The Fog and Village of the Damned. One a classical ghost story, the other a somewhat more psychological horror piece with alien intruders.

Another awesome Carpenter movie is Big Trouble in Little China, of course, but I didn't list it before because it isn't really a horror movie. It's more of an action comedy with some very small horror elements. Very small.

And yet another one is Darkstar, which is a bit of a satirical, philosophical piece about despair, loneliness and self-awareness. And a sentient bomb. And a beach ball.

My favorite John Carpenter movie is "The Thing". The original "Halloween" is pretty cool.

"Big Trouble in Little China" is great! I also like "Escape from New York" and "Escape from L.A." And I think the second one is better. Don't judge me.

I guess "The Thing" is, in the end, Carpenter's very best movie. I can't forget to mention "In the Mouth of Madness" on my TOP list right after it though. :) But enough has been said about it already.

I felt like "Escape from LA" was more of a remake than a sequel as "Escape from New York". I saw LA first, so it is difficult for me to compare. I quite enjoyed "Big Trouble in Little China".

Fun fact: the original "True Crime: Streets of LA" was apparently inspired by "Big Trouble in Little China". Apparently that's why they have a dragon for a boss.

True Crime was a confusing game. True crime? Then why am I having a shoot out with demons?

I'll be sure to do so! My colleagues and I are currently discussing how we're going to format our interview. Hopefully we'll have something soon! :)
