This week on The John Carpentcast, Nick and Chris are joined by actor/producer Liz Manning to talk about John Carpenter’s 1978 game-changing horror masterpiece Halloween. It’s almost that special time of year, why not turn down the lights and kick it off right?
Media referenced in this show:
- I (Nick) paraphrased a Bill Hicks bit from his special Sane Man about Drunk Driving in the 70s to the point of possible plagiarism. I meant to attribute it in the moment but didn’t. It’s a funny thought, but it was not my thought, it’s Bill’s.
- 70s Van Culture.
- The Thing From Another World.
- “And they settled on ‘Raw Meat’?!”
- Forbidden Planet 1950s Electronic Soundtrack.
- The Message (1976), the film about the early days of Islam that Moustapha Akkad was producing when he was approached by Carpenter about Halloween.
