From the twisted world of a horror novelist and his reality altering works to a fog carrying a terrifying curse, this month Shudder spotlights four tales of horror and suspense spanning the career of legendary director John Carpenter.
“John Carpenter is a true master of horror and In the Mouth of Madness is one of his greatest and most disturbing films, with a brilliant performance by Sam Neill. We’re excited to have it on Shudder along with The Fog, Vampires and Assault on Precinct 13 as part of our John Carpenter August collection,” said Shudder general manager Craig Engler.
Experience the dark genius of John Carpenter with the following films:
IN THE MOUTH OF MADNESS
An insurance investigator begins discovering that the impact a horror writer’s books have on his fans is more than inspirational. Sam Neill stars.
An unearthly fog rolls into a small coastal town exactly 100 years after a ship mysteriously sank in its waters. Featuring an all-star cast including Hal Holbrook, Jamie Lee Curtis, Janet Leigh and Adrienne Barbeau.
Recovering from an ambush that killed his entire team, a vengeful vampire slayer must retrieve an ancient Catholic relic that, should it be acquired by vampires, will allow them to walk in sunlight.
ASSAULT ON PRECINCT 13
An unlikely partnership between a Highway Patrol Officer, two criminals and a station secretary is formed to defend a defunct Los Angeles precinct office against a siege by a bloodthirsty street gang. This 1976 action and suspense thriller predates Carpenter’s master work Halloween.
