Continuing the Lambcast’s month of horror sees us looking at a director noted for some pivotal moments within the genre, John Carpenter. He formed and popularised the slasher movie template with Halloween, made everyone fear their fellow man with The Thing and turned a man into a giant pile of beetles in Prince of Darkness.
Jay Cluitt was joined by Daniel Lackey, David Brook, Darren Lucas and semi-newcomer Will McGainey to take a ride (in a 1958 cherry red Plymouth Fury) through ten of Carpenter’s bigger films, before playing a quick game of Last Lamb Standing to round out the show.
The show can be found, of course, via iTunes – just do a search for “LAMBcast.” Also, I always post a link to the show on the LAMBcast’s Facebook page, and there’s a player there if you’d like to listen online. The direct RSS feed is: http://lambcast.podomatic.com/entry/2015-10-26T13_45_51-07_00. Shows will eventually make their way to the LAMBcast Archives.
