Yesterday Barack Obama, now John Carpenter (the director whose iconic horror films have likely scared you witless) will answer your questions live on Twitter, Friday from 2:00 to 3:30 PST.

Carpenter's low-budget 1978 film Halloween defined and originated the slasher film genre, steadicam and all. His influential genre films continued through the 1980s with The Fog, Escape from New York, and The Thing. After a decade-long sabbatical from filmmaking, Carpenter has returned this summer with The Ward (trailer below), a tense thriller about a group of women (and an unwelcome guest) in a mental hospital in the 1960s—“Girl Interrupted…by an Angry Ghost.” The movie, which was filmed in the still-functioning, remote Eastern Washington State Mental Hospital, will be released in select cities Friday.

For a tweet from John Carpenter, send your questions to:

@ARC_Entertain, with #theward included in your tweet.

ARC Entertainment will release The Ward in Los Angeles and New York, Austin, Boston, Chicago, Dallas, Denver, Houston, Miami, Minneapolis and New Orleans on July 8, 2011.
