Celebrated horror director John Carpenter, of Halloween and The Thing amongst others (revisit Prince Of Darkness, that film doesn’t get nearly enough love), revealed to Fangoria some details of a current project, saying, “I got into this business to make Westerns, and I got tyepcast as a horror director after Halloween. My dream was to become, to have a career in directing movies so I went wherever they wanted me to go… I’m right now working on a little gothic Western, we’ll see if we can get it set up. It’s hard to sell Westerns these days, meaning it’s hard to raise money because they’re not real commercial.[A horror Western] doesn’t really work… they tried it in the old days, they tried Jesse James Meets Frankenstein and Billy The Kid Meets Dracula… a Western should be a Western.”
Be interesting to see, Assault On Precinct 13 was kinda like a Western wasn’t it?
