John Carpenter

There is no doubt that John Carpenter is already one of the titans of genre filmmaking, and one whose influence is still being felt today, even if his most recent efforts haven't quite matched his career highs. But really, getting into the same ballpark of movies like "Dark Star," "Halloween," "Assault On Precinct 13," "The Thing," "They Live" and more is no easy feat. And the fact that Carpenter is the man who made all those movies himself (and more), is frankly a testament to his talent.

Well, get ready to celebrate that talent with the 1-hour documentary "John Carpenter: Fear Is Just The Beginning... The Man And His Movies." The 2004 film is a nice journey not only through his films, but through the life of Carpenter, from the days before his making movies to tracking his rise and more. Featuring interviews with key cast members (it kicks off with Jamie Lee Curtis, naturally) and crew, and loaded with lots of clips, photos and more, and of course, features the man himself, this is one fans will want to dig into. Check it out below. [The Seventh Art]

    "The Thing" is a masterpiece. Can't believe it was so horribly received. I really appreciate you guys being the only movie site that posts these awesome documentaries. They always make my day.
