The Thing (1982 film)
My first encounter with John Carpenter's The Thing was back around November of 2001, where I only saw a snippet of the movie on TNT. Just my luck, I tuned in at one of the most gruesome scenes in …

I saw this movie for free on YouTube back in October of 2010.  Quite frankly, I thought this movie was too cheesy and its characters were really bland, though it does redeem itself a little bit for …

John Carpenter's The Thing is one of my absolute favorite horror movies.  Even though the movie came out in 1982, Rob Bottin's special effects still look absolutely disgusting and amazing …

First of all, I'd like to thank a certain penpal of mine who brought this movie to my attention. Otherwise, I probably would have ignored it.      Most John Carpenter fans don't …

Although most people don't want to hear this, I've always said that some people are born rotten. Now, don't misunderstand me; I wouldn't suggest that any single factor is responsible for …

Carpenter's second feature is a lean, urban reworking of Hawks' Rio Bravo. The B-movie maestro has always produced impressive results on shoestring budgets, but this $100K production delivers …

I'm at that stage in my movie watching days where horror films have no affect on me anymore. I've seen them all: Halloween(1978), Rob Zombie's Halloween, Friday the 13th(1980), Friday the 13th(2009). …

Assault on Precinct 13  is one of my childhood favorites. A crazy film about all of the L.A. street gangs forming a pact so they can terrorize the streets together. When one of their own is killed …

Halloween (1978) is John Carpenter's homage to Dario Argento and Mario Bava. A horror/thriller uses mood, music and lighting instead of relying on buckets of red paint and cheap scares. This movie also …

Over his long career, John Carpenter made a few classic movies and a pretty fair amount of junk. Classics include HALLOWEEN, THE THING and to some, ESCAPE FROM NEW YORK and most questionably BIG TROUBLE …

One of my favorite sci-fi, and horror films has always been Ridley Scott's 1979 classic Alien, and for a while now I've been looking for a film that would make for a good late-night double feature (excluding …
