This episode is the conclusion of CJ's coverage of John Carpenter's filmmaking career.

[*Note: Since recording this episode, I did get a chance to watch Bodybags, which is actually a horror anthology movie rather than a series as I think I said in the episode. Long story short, I liked it a lot & would definitely recommend it for any fans of horror in general and/or Carpenter in particular.]

Join CJ as he discusses:

  • All the films Carpenter directed from Christine (1983) through The Ward (2010)
  • Common themes and techniques in Carpenter's films
  • Carpenter's statements about what he believes vs. the ideology that his films portray (which are often quite different)
  • Carpenter's influence on CJ's worldview, and why his best works have resonated so strongly.
