Top 10 John Carpenter

John Carpenter is a Director who plays by his own rules. He's also one of the few guys who even gets to have his name above the title. 

Though he hasn't made a great Film in many years (In The Mouth Of Madness was my last true Favorite of his), he's had quite a run. The late 70's and the entire 80's belonged to Carpenter. He has made quite a number of memorable low-budget and Studio Films. John Carpenter is a Cinema god. 


Here are my 10 Favorite John Carpenter Films, in this order. 

The List:

Halloween (1978)
The Thing (1982)
Escape from New York (1981)
Assault on Precinct 13 (1976)
Starman (1984)
They Live (1988)
Christine (1983)
Prince of Darkness (1987)
In the Mouth of Madness (1994)

And the rest...
