Carpenter

One of the things that makes Remy’s Full Frontal conference so good—apart from the great content—is the venue: Brighton’s excellent Duke of York’s cinema.

The cinema occasionally plays host to all-night movie marathons like all three Lord Of The Rings films (the extended editions, of course). This weekend in preparation for Halloween their was a John Carpenter all-nighter. By pure coincidence, the AV Club just published this primer on John Carpenter.

The four-film marathon started at 11pm and finished at mumble-mumble o’clock. It was a blast. The chosen selection was:

  1. Halloween (1978)
  2. The Fog (1980)
  3. Escape From New York (1981)
  4. They Live (1988)

It’s a shame that The Thing wasn’t included but it was a great line-up.

However, it still can’t compete with the sheer brilliance of seeing John Carpenter’s directorial debut Dark Star recreated with puppets before my very eyes.
