The Evolution of John Carpenter | NowThis Nerd

Throughout the history of John Carpenter, director of Halloween 1978, the John Carpenter filmography contains some of the most classic action and horror movies in the history of film. Throughout the evolution of John Carpenter, the auteur has grown from humble beginnings to create Halloween, Michael Myers, Snake Plissken, and dozens of other amazing movies in John Carpenter history. From Escape From New York, Big Trouble in Little China, They Live, The Fog, Christine, The Thing, and many more classic films, every John Carpenter scene, clip, and trailer is evidence of this filmmaker’s mastery. Now that Halloween 2018 is upon us, and Jamie Lee Curtis has returned for the hotly anticipated Halloween reboot, John Carpenter isn’t director, but the composer is contributing his score, which reflects on his recent commitment to touring as a full-time synthwave artist.
