John Carpenter is no stranger to interviews, and he’s often quite forthcoming in discussing various aspects of his life and career. This rare interview, from the early 1990s, is no exception. It features the filmmaker in a cafe enjoying coffee and a cigarette while answering questions pertaining to everything from working within the studio system, violence in movies, who he’d like to work with, and how the physical aspect of directing films as he gets older is comparable to working in a coal mine. He also mentions being interested, at the time, in doing a remake of Creature From The Black Lagoon (1954).
