It's the creepy space baby turned Starman versus the impossibly stupid but incredibly lucky Jack Burton this week on The Carpenterbowl as Starman goes up against Big Trouble In Little China!
Round two of The Carpenterbowl kicks off this week as the grandfather of all slasher horror Halloween goes up against one of Carpenters most underrated and engaging films, The Mouth of Madness. Which film will emerge triumphant and move on to the final round? Listen in to find out!
We dive in deep this week and ask ourselves two critical questions, how do you know you're watching a John Carpenter movie and is John Carpenter a good director? Also we outline our plans for Round Two of the Carpenterbowl.
Programming note: DM Tom says at one point that "Paul Anderson" is an example of an auteur director. He meant to say Wes Anderson. Paul Anderson made the Resident Evil movie. Wes Anderson made The Royal Tenenbaums. You can see how he'd get those mixed up.
The greatest trick the devil ever pulled wasn't convincing you that he wasn't real, it was convincing you that Escape from LA is worth watching.
