I knew you'd bring up their commentary! I was hoping no one would remember it, because it disproves my point.
I was actually thinking of a great documentary on Halloween that I saw last October 31st. Several times during that doc, Carpenter made statements where he seemed sick of answering the same questions 30-some years later. He did NOT seem sarcastic then, just worn out.
