Episode Thirteen: They Live (1988)

We've got two guests this week on The John Carpentcast, video game podcaster Brian Cartwright and comedian Scott Gesser join Nick and Chris to talk about a different kind of Carpenter film - a hard-hitting, ahead of its time documentary about this brave new world and the media-manipulating, skull-faced aliens in it. It's Carpenter's cult classic sci-fi satire They Live. Tune in, this episode is gonna be tremendous.

Episode Twelve: Prince of Darkness (1987)

Film critic Bill Pierce returns to The John Carpentcast to pop open a can of liquid Satan with Nick and Chris as we discuss Carpenter's 1987 supernatural thriller Prince of Darkness. Join us for some vintage 80s pseudo-scientific demonic mayhem. And bear in mind that certain comments are made for the purposes of humor/satire and do not necessarily reflect the actual opinions of The John Carpentercast or its hosts.

(Our legal department made us add that last part.)

Episode Eleven: Big Trouble in Little China (1986)

It's a supernatural martial arts shoot-em-up action fantasy comedy modern-western. It shouldn't work - but if you love whacked-out 80s cult movies, you'll love every nutty minute. This week, author and film critic Hal C.F. Astell of Apocalypse Later returns to the show to talk with Nick and Chris about Carpenter's 1986 genre-bending masterpiece Big Trouble in Little China.
