John Carpenter: Master of Horror

John Carpenter has maintained his place as one of the most loved and highly lauded directors in the realm of cult, fantasy and horror filmmaking for over 40 years. From the moment that Halloween broke through to audiences worldwide in 1978, Carpenter has created some of the most successful films in cinema history.

Through October and November GFT is taking the rare opportunity to present the spectacle of Carpenter's much-loved cult classics on the big screen looking better than ever. 

The Fog, They Live and Escape from New York are all presented in brand new digital restorations while Halloween will be accompanied by an exclusive recorded Q&A with John Carpenter, discussing Halloween's development and its enduring legacy.
