John Carpenter Booking Agency Profile

John Carpenter is an American filmmaker, actor, and composer best known for his work on horror films. Most famously, he is known for the film The Thing – a movie that has since become a cult classic and single-handedly revitalized the sci-fi horror genre in recent years. John’s earliest work was Dark Star, a sci-fi comedy and his first movie following a string of student films that were well-received. His second film, Assault on Precinct 13, was his first major commercial success and following this, John became a highly-respected name, creating hit after hit. While his last film as a director was 2010’s The Ward, John is also a celebrated composer and actor. Since his legendary 1978 horror film Halloween, John has composed music for the majority of his films. Since 2010’s The Ward, he has continued to compose for a variety of films, including the most recent 2022 film Firestarter. So many filmmakers have cited John Carpenter as one of their biggest inspirations, including James Cameron and Quentin Tarantino. As far as his work as a composer, Hans Zimmer has also cited him as one of his major influences. In 2020, he released “Lost Cues: The Thing”, which is a newly recorded soundtrack for his iconic film..
