John Carpenter films

I love John Carpenter films, they are a lot better than the normal run of the mill hollywood films. The fog is a classic film. The best part of any John Carpenter must be a scene from "They Live" where the main hero comes into a shop with a shotgun and says "I've come here to kick ass and chew bubble gum, and I'm all out of bubble gum." Then goes on a killing spree.

I like films where you really don't know what is going to happen at the end, that's what makes his films soooo good.

He lost the plot a bit though..still, he did crank out a fair few classics..
Dark Star
Big Trouble in Little China ( "Danger is my middle name!")
The Thing ( best. remake. ever. )
Escape from New York
They Live
Halloween
The Fog
Prince of Darkness

Escape from LA though, that sucked ass, not to mention all the terrible Halloween sequels.

I'd have to admit to quite enjoying "Vampires" though..

Did he do "In the Mouth of Madness"? , the Sam Neil one?

That was pretty cool, or was that someone else?

Big Trouble In Little China was one of my fave films as a kid and The Thing is one of, if not my #1 favorite film.

"I can see things no other man can see............... Why are you wearing that dress?"

"Maybe we at war with Norway?"

Excellent films

An attack on a police station, (precinct 13) basically, pretty tense stuff as a gang of youths decide to kill everyone inside the station, whilst they try to defend themselves.

And you get to see a pump action shotgun fired like a machine pistol

Also has the quote "He doesn't stand as well as he used to" after dropping someone

it was the first film to show a human elbow bend 90 degrees the wrong way as well

Also possibly the first american film EVER to show a child being executed.
