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.

One is the emotional favorites, which means these are generally films that I saw when I was a kid anything you see in your formative years is more powerful, because it really stays with you forever. The second category is films that I saw while I was learning the craft of motion pictures.

– John Carpenter


When I was a kid, I loved ‘The Curse of Frankenstein,’ ‘The Creeping Unknown,’ ‘X: The Unknown.’ I love ‘Forbidden Planet,’ ‘The Thing from Another World.’ They were science fiction/horror movies, generally.
