John Carpenter Concert-14

Perhaps no other genre of film is more dependent on great music than horror. Think of Jaws without John Williams. Think Psycho without Bernard Herrmann. Imagine The Exorcist without Tubular Bells. In the last 40 years no one has had a bigger impact in genre filmmaking than John Carpenter, and one of the distinguishing characteristics of his films are the scores, many written and performed by the Master of Horror himself. Thursday night at Terminal 5 on the west side of Manhattan; with Christine, the sleek red Plymouth Fury, parked outside, fans packed in to watch and listen to the acclaimed horror director perform themes off his new album Anthology: Movie Themes (1974-1998).

John Carpenter's Christine Music Video

Back in 1983, a movie adaptation of the Stephen King novel Christine was released. The adaptation was directed by the great John Carpenter, who’s known for making the original Halloween, The Thing, Big Trouble in Little China, They Live, and much more.

Carpenter also worked on the musical score for the movie. And now, 34 years later, Carpenter has directed an official music video for its theme. He even stars in the video!

Encore Presents The Stephen King Collection

Stephen King‘s birthday is September 21st, but it’s the fans who will receive gifts! Encore TV will show one Stephen King movie a night (sometimes one part a night) through September 30th, and on Mr. King’s actual birthday there will be an all-day marathon starting at 8AM.

Check out the full schedule here below.

It is not every Stephen King movie and there are some notable ones missing, but if every single one was my favorite, I would not leave the house in September at all! You do get to enjoy The Running Man with Arnold Schwarzenegger in the worst game show ever, and Secret Window with Johnny Depp as an author accused of plagiarism and then terrorized for it by an excellent John Turturro. Salem’s Lot scared the crap out of me as a kid. Why was I watching Salem’s Lot as a kid? Oh yeah — it was 1979.
