John Carpenter to host El Rey's Halloween horror showcase

John Carpenter El Rey

El Rey, the network created by Robert Rodriguez, is starting an anthology series that will bring indie short films and creators to the screen. Titled The People's Network Showcase, the two-hour special will air quarterly with selections chosen by El Rey, as well as "interviews with the filmmakers and vignettes of current industry professionals sharing behind the scenes secrets of their craft."

Says Rodriguez:

When I started El Rey I wanted the network to provide a new pipeline for creators. My roots are in independent filmmaking and I believe in providing opportunities to people working outside of the studio system. We’ve discovered these terrific short films by very talented makers and with this on-air special, we can help get them noticed.

That's all well and good, but get this: The very first episode of the special will air on October 30th and feature an entire slate of horror flicks for your bloody enjoyment. The host? John Carpenter himself, director of HALLOWEEN, THE THING, and do I really need to keep going?

In recent times, Carpenter hasn't been particularly interested in talking about his horror output, but perhaps his time touring as a bona fide rock star has reinvigorated his interest in the genre and his impact upon it.

Check out the list of short films you can expect Mr. Carpenter to present:
