Happy 72nd Birthday To John Carpenter!



A lot of the horror directors taking hold of the scene are up and coming or just newly established greats. And that's amazing to see. New blood flying the flag that is HORROR.
But to know that one of the legends is still here with us is incredibly comforting. And not only that, here and still kicking @$$.
As John Carpenter turns 72, he continues to stay active with the newly revived "Halloween" series. He composed the score for 2018's "Halloween" rebootquel and went on tour that year, celebrating his vast catalog of movie scores.
And this upcoming Halloween season, his music will again take center stage in the follow up film, "Halloween Kills," also bringing back the great Jamie Lee Curtis.
Oddly enough, I grew up on the films that had nothing to do with Michael Myers. "Big Trouble In Little China," "They Live," "Memoirs Of An Invisible Man." I loved all of the films that were fun and strange. And his music in such films as "Halloween 3: Season Of The Witch," was amazing despite it being a film trashed in its day.
But despite a legacy that has the Escape From films with Kurt Russell, "Starman," and the incredible "The Thing," he is largely remembered for the horror masterpiece, 1978's "Halloween" and it's accompanying score.
The man IS a legend, and someone who you can definitely look up to as an inspiration. I definitely want that kind of longevity and creative curiosity long into my later years.
So happy birthday Mr. Carpenter! Thank you for the inspiration, your wonderful art, and your legacy.
