Director…writer…composer. The triple threat became a force to be reckoned with yet again as an award-winning comic book creator with John Carpenter’s Asylum, followed by his multi-award-winning anthology, John Carpenter’s Tales for a HalloweeNight.
Carpenter’s breakthrough film was Halloween, the seminal horror movie, that made Michael Myers the best known boogey man in modern times. It was the most profitable independent movie of its day and launched the genre of the teen slasher film.
His movie, The Thing, remains a space alien classic which opened new frontiers in creature effects and suspense, while Escape From New York introduced the world to the iconic character of Snake Plissken, who along with They Live’s John Nada, epitomizes American cool.
John’s two album’s of non-soundtrack music, Lost Themes and Lost Themes II, have made the charts in both the U.S. and Europe, leading to a live appearance world tour in 2016 met by enthusiastic crowds from Los Angeles to Barcelona.
With this step into the comic book world, John Carpenter brings it all to the serial world he’s loved since childhood. Supernatural horror with that twist of fate that only flawed mankind can provide.
