John Carpenter

American film director, screenwriter, producer and film composer
To survive you have to withstand the changes in the business. This business has gone through so many changes since I was young and now it is on to something else. It is all weird today, for me, because I am from the old times. You just have to keep adapting. Isn't that Darwinism? The creature that adapts to its environment survives.More John Carpenter quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
I don't watch my films. I've seen 'em enough after cutting them and putting the music on. I don't ever want to see them again.More John Carpenter quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
There are two different stories in horror: internal and external. In external horror films, the evil comes from the outside, the other tribe, this thing in the darkness that we don't understand. Internal is the human heart.More John Carpenter quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
When I got into the movie business, working with actors was the one thing I was really weak at. I didn't know what to say to actors. They scared me and intimidated me. The actors that I've worked with who have had a lot of experience, or who I've even grown up watching as a kid, were really scary. I was like, "What am I going to say to this person?" But, I've matured. It's fun. I understand what actors do now.More John Carpenter quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
One could make money and get a career going with a low-budget horror film about killers attacking on holidays. It is always flattering to have somebody copy you.More John Carpenter quotes [09/27/2011 10:09:30]
