During Texas Frightmare Weekend (via Prague Reporter), Carpenter took the stage and dropped some info on his return to directing, “John Carpetner’s Suburban Screams.” As the “Halloween” filmmaker said:
“I just finished directing, remotely, a TV series called Suburban Screams – “John Carpenter’s Suburban Screams” […] It was shot in Prague, and I sat on my couch and directed it. It was awesome.”
Carpenter has become somewhat famous among his fans for being the type of guy happy to sit at home playing video games, while occasionally venturing out to play a gig or appear at an event. The fact that he was able to conduct from his living room seems to have been a game-changer – maybe he’ll do it again! Although Carpenter didn’t provide specifics, I assume he called all the plans via Skype or Zoom or something. The future is here, friends! If John Carpenter wants to do more stuff from his couch, I’m all for it. I’ll take all the carpenter I can get!
As for “John Carpenter’s Suburban Screams”, there is hardly any information available at this time. But based on that title, I’m guessing this is some sort of horror anthology series set in the suburbs. Unless I’m completely wrong! No matter how it goes, I’m thrilled to know that Carpenter is leading again.
