Funny you mention this film, I pre-ordered the DVD from Amazon.com a week or so ago. I should be getting it today or tomorrow. Its been one of my favorite cult films since I was a kid. I have The Thing, Big Trouble in Little China, Escape from NY, The Fog on DVD right now, I’m slowly putting together my Best of Carpenter collection.
Carpenter has gone downhill is the past decade or so, he hasnt really done anything worthwhile. Hopefully he’ll come back with a kickass film sometime.
