We’re all afraid of the same things. That’s why horror is such a powerful genre. All you have to do is ask yourself what frightens you and you’ll know what frightens me.  (John Carpenter Quotes) I don’t want to be a part of the demographics. I want to be an individual.

The rhythm you create affects the audience.  (John Carpenter Quotes) As for action movies, I did Tarzan, and I’m also about to shoot Meltdown, which John Carpenter wrote  (John Carpenter Quotes) Remakes, in general, are a result of necessity being the mother of invention. They can’t open movies consistently and break through the advertising clutter that’s out there.  (John Carpenter Quotes) One could make money and get a career going with a low-budget horror film about killers attacking on holidays. It is always flattering to have somebody copy you.  (John Carpenter Quotes) It’s a very good time for horror. This business certainly has changed, but there’s still room for serious horror films. Look at 28 Days Later, that’s not a tongue-in-cheek picture.  (John Carpenter Quotes) When somebody who makes movies for a living - either as an actor, writer, producer or director - lives to be a certain age, you have to admire them. It is an act of courage to make a film - a courage for which you are not prepared in the rest of life. It is very hard and very destructive. But we do it because we love it.  (John Carpenter Quotes) I stopped directing in 2001 for four or five years, until I did the TV series ‘Masters Of Horror.’ I had been working steadily as a director since 1970.

I can still listen to his music today and be stirred and moved by it. But I think that you fall in love with... Well, again, when you’re young, it really is more powerful. Much more terrifying.  (John Carpenter Quotes) I’m pretty happy with who I am. I like myself and what I’m doing. I don’t need to be the world’s greatest director or the most famous -- or the richest. I don’t need to make a whole lot of great films. I can do my job and I can do it pretty well. This is the realization I’ve come to, later in life. It’s called growing up.  (John Carpenter Quotes) To make movies you just have to want it enough. You have to have the passion for telling stories. You have to get by the love-of-movies aspect. You can’t just be a movie fan  (John Carpenter Quotes) Evil hiding among us is an ancient theme  (John Carpenter Quotes) I made a decision back in 1978 that, in a trade off for money when I directed Halloween, I would have my name above the title in order to basically brand these movies my own  (John Carpenter Quotes) In England, I’m a horror movie director. In Germany, I’m a filmmaker. In the US, I’m a bum  (John Carpenter Quotes) It’s a very good time for horror. This business certainly has changed, but there’s still room for serious horror films.

I don’t think it will ever go away because it’s so universal. Humor doesn’t always travel to other countries, but horror does  (John Carpenter Quotes) Anybody can make a movie, if you have the will. The digital revolution has made it very inexpensive to make a film. Anybody who wants to can do it  (John Carpenter Quotes) A lot of it [success] is luck.
