With Brooke Gladstone

“One of the greatest horror directors of all time.”
—The New York Times

Boasting “one of the most consistent and coherent bodies of work in modern cinema” (Kent Jones, Film Comment), genre auteur John Carpenter has been making skin crawl and movie lovers scream since the 1970s, when his blockbuster Halloween became one of the most profitable independent films ever made. Carpenter, who has composed the score to nearly all his films, will celebrate the upcoming release of his album Lost Themes—available on Sacred Bones Records on February 3—as he joins NPR host Brooke Gladstone (On the Media) for a rare discussion of his legendary work in film and music.

Advisory 
Important Update
