10. Starman – not usually keen on romantic films but this one is very sweet
09. Vampires – love this movie and James Woods rocks in this film, loads of fun
08. Assault on Precinct 13 – this is gripping thriller, the music is perfect and the cast is outstanding
07. They Live – awesome film and has some amazing one-liners
06. Escape from New York – such on overall great action film with an iconic anti-hero, Snake Plissken, what’s not to love?
05. The fog – awesome old fashioned ghost story
04. Big Trouble in Little China – has Kurt Russell in it, do I need another reason?
03. In the Mouth of Madness – this film is so bizarre but just something about it I can watch over and over Sam Neill is brilliant in it
02. The Thing – love this film so much, it is the whole package and again has Kurt Russell in it. The SF are awesome
01. Halloween – bought the slasher film back, I know there were others before this but this one was on a whole new level of greatness
Until I started this list I didn’t realise that there are a lot more than 10 good Carpenter films. So special mentions to: Body Bags, Escape from LA, The Ward, Christine, Prince of Darkness and I am sure there are probably more…
