John Carpenter Iconic horror director John Carpenter has, for the last seven years, retreated from feature film directing and has been quite content to sit back and enjoy the sweet smell of fresh paychecks for insipid remakes of his classic films but it seems he's feeling the directing bug once again as, according to Shock 'Till You Drop, he's currently casting a film titled L.A. GOTHIC. STYD describes the film's plot as such: "Five interwoven stories of high-octane horror centering on a vengeful ex-priest's efforts to protect his teenage daughter from the supernatural evils of L.A.'s dark side." Oooh, sounds tasty. Jim Agnew and Sean Keller, who recently teamed up with Dario Argento on GIALLO, wrote the script with production expected to begin in March.

Extra Tidbit: The picture above is of Carpenter making a cameo in GHOSTS OF MARS (the last feature film he directed in 2001).

I'm always in full support of what the man wants to do, I think he should do a remake of a remake of a film, you know a remake a bad remake and show how it's really done.

Stop it. Just stop it

John Carpenter and goth? Well, that combo brings us back to Vampires which, when it comes around, sucked balls. Especially compared to masterpieces such as The Thing, Escape from New York and They Live.

Red flag

I get nervous when something is described as "high-octane". But I'll definitely be monitoring this one. I mean, hey, it's Carpenter.

Can't wait for this, I've recently been re-watching many of Carpenter's classics. Hell, even Ghosts of Mars wasn't that bad, and I normally can't stand a film with Ice Cube.
If you haven't seen Carpenter's admission to Masters of Horror (season one), Cigarette Burns, try to find a copy, as it was definitely my favourite of both seasons.

Sounds interesting. Hey, maybe there's a chance he'll hook up with Kurt Russell again for ESCAPE FROM EARTH? Huh? Huh?

March huh? Sounds like he's going for an October release just in time for Halloween. Oh he would.

This sounds like it'd be a pretty sweet flick. Hopefully the man hasn't lost his touch and is able to churn out a well made film.
