The Films of John Carpenter - Softcover Book



Add to Cart:


$24.99

The films of John Carpenter cover a tremendous range and yet all bear his clear personal stamp. From the horrifying (Halloween) to the touching (Starman) to the controversial (The Thing) to the comic (Big Trouble in Little China), his films reflect a unique approach to filmmaking and singular views of humanity and American culture.

This analysis of Carpenter’s films includes a historical overview of his career, and in-depth entries on each of his films, from 1975’s Dark Star to 1998’s Vampires. Complete cast and production information is provided for each. The book also covers those films written and produced by Carpenter, such as Halloween II and Black Moon Rising, as well as Carpenter’s work for television. Appendices are included on films Carpenter was offered but turned down, the slasher films that followed in the wake of the highly-successful Halloween, the actors and characters who make repeated appearances in Carpenter’s films, and ratings for Carpenter’s work. Notes, bibliography, and index are included.
