I'm a sucka for 80's movies and love Prince of Darkness. You have Egg Shen and half of Simon & Simon. What's not to like?

I love all of Carpenters work and sadly it really wasn't appreciated by the masses when the films debuted, now days I think most folks really enjoy his films.

Not really horror but Big Trouble in Little China is a fun movie as well!

Lol, was going to use the Simon & Simon reference but did not think anyone would get it.

The Escape movies made me revisit Big Trouble as well. Probably had not seen it since the early 90's. Slippy is right on. Carpenter rocks!

Is anyone planning to hit Halloween Horror Nights at either of the Universal parks this year? My kids will be with my ex Halloween weekend so I'm thinking of trying to make it this year. Been drooling over it for a while now, especially the AWIL haunt from last year.

Big Trouble is a classic. Carpenter and Russell made great movies together, with the exception of Escape from LA. You hear they're thinking of remaking Big Trouble with The Rock as Jack Burton.

BTILC is a classic and Carpenter's Best (IMO).

I realize you're from the silent era of tv/movies. So let me rephrase, the golden age of talkies.

Speaking of Carpenter, if you want to see one of his most disturbing films, check out The Masters of Horror episode called 'Cigarette Burns'. It's better than some of his movies.

Not familiar with Carpenter's Cigarette Burns. Will have to look it up. On another note, watched Mega Shark vs Kolossus tonight. Not bad. Moves kinda slow and takes itself seriously for one of these kinds of movies. Strangely enough it works. For one of these kinds of movies that is.

Hey dude long time no hear!

I wish I was going to Universal for that! It would be pretty cool! Knotts was pretty fun for Halloween as well!

Magnum is a classic and I sometimes catch old episodes on tv.

Yeah, been crazy busy with work and summer fun.

I would have thought oink would love at least a few shows from the "golden age", like hmmm, maybe Manimal

The gf wanted to watch something scary last night and picked Wrong Turn from my library. It had been a while since I'd seen it but apart from the few scenes with dated cheesy cg that is a pretty solid movie, I enjoyed watching it again. Makes me excited for October. Last year I was hip deep in life drama so hardly watched anything in October, really looking forward to making up for lost time this year!

Carpenter's "The Ward" with Amber Heard is a good watch too. They actually shot it at the abandoned Eastern Washington State Hospital which was also used for scenes in "Z Nation." In the commentary with Carpenter and Jared Harris, Harris has to keep bringing Carpenter back to discussing the movie as Carpenter wanted to know about growing up with Richard Harris.
