Our third season of Filmography on the Master of Horror John Carpenter continues, as Film Editor Dominick Suzanne-Mayer is joined for this week’s episode, John Carpenter vs. The Monster Mash, by Halloweenies and The Losers Club contributor Mackenzie Gerber and CoS senior writer and Alcohollywood co-host and editor Clint Worthington.
Together, they examine Carpenter’s understanding of monstrousness, the ways in which his filmmaking informs the scares of some of his creatures, the wildly differing returns he’s found on monster movies throughout his career, and much more.
