John Carpenter

American film director, screenwriter, producer and film composer
Horror stories have always worked on film. It's where they work. That's where vampires and ghosts and UFOs are real. They're not particularly real in life, but they're real on the screen. It's the communal aspect of movie-watching.More John Carpenter quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]

The second category is films that I saw while I was learning the craft of motion pictures.More John Carpenter quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
