5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome, 9 May 2011
This review is from: John Carpenter: The Prince of Darkness: The Prince of Darkness, an Exclusive Interview with the Director of 'Halloween' and 'The Thing' (Paperback)
I love John Carpenter, his works, his person, and this book has a lot of both. Very useful, great pictures and really great words from the man who directed The Thing, Halloween and other horror and science fiction classics as They Live or The Prince of Darkness. The interview covers the hole filmography, movie by movie. Great.

This review is from: John Carpenter: The Prince of Darkness: The Prince of Darkness, an Exclusive Interview with the Director of 'Halloween' and 'The Thing' (Paperback)
I was curious about this book for one simple reason, how could such a great director, who produced the likes of halloween, the thing and escape from new york, have gone so down hill over the last few years? This book covers all his films upto and including ghosts of mars. In a series of interviews he covers his life story and influences, before discussing each of his films in great detail. He is brutally honest in his conversations over what is right and wrong with each of his films,and the difficulties and opposition that he faced, especially from the critics. Time I feel has been kind to a lot of his films, the thing was deemed a flop at the time, but is now considered a classic with special effects that beat a lot of modern films hands down. Halloween is the original, copied many times, bur rarely beaten. Did the book answer my original question? Yes, but you'll have to read it for yourself to find out. A must for fans, and still a good read for the mildly intrested
