John Carpenter

Carpenter in 2010 John Howard Carpenter (born January 16, 1948) is an American filmmaker, screenwriter and composer. Although Carpenter has worked with various movie genres, he is associated most commonly with horror, action, and science fiction films of the 1970s and 1980s.

Most films of Carpenter's career were initially commercial and critical failures, with the notable exceptions of ''Halloween'' (1978), ''The Fog'' (1980), ''Escape from New York'' (1981), and ''Starman'' (1984). However, many of Carpenter's films from the 1970s and the 1980s have come to be considered as cult classics, and he has been acknowledged as an influential filmmaker. The cult classics that Carpenter has directed include ''Dark Star'' (1974), ''Assault on Precinct 13'' (1976), ''The Thing'' (1982), ''Christine'' (1983), ''Big Trouble in Little China'' (1986), ''Prince of Darkness'' (1987), ''They Live'' (1988), and ''In the Mouth of Madness'' (1995). He returned to the ''Halloween'' franchise as both composer and executive producer for the horror sequel ''Halloween'' (2018).

Carpenter composed or co-composed most of his films' music. He won a Saturn Award for Best Music for the film ''Vampires'' (1998). Carpenter has released three studio albums, titled ''Lost Themes'' (2015), ''Lost Themes II'' (2016), and ''Anthology: Movie Themes 1974–1998'' (2017). Provided by Wikipedia
