Well, here we are. We made it to the end. The John Carpentcast says goodbye with our final episode, joined once again by Cecil Laird of The Horror Show for John Carpenter's brief sojourn out of retirement for his last film as a director, The Ward. Carpenter returns to the horror genre which he had such an enormous impact on defining, but is this 2010 swan song a true return to form?... A huge thanks to all of our guests on the show over the last year-plus, and of course, all of you, the listeners who made this journey - as interminable as it was sometimes - with us. The John Carpentcast may be drawing to a close, but you can't get rid of Nick and Chris that easy. We'll be back with all new ways to invade your ear-holes with some exciting upcoming projects - but first... a bunch of crazy girls being terrorized by a ghost courtesy of the Master.
John Carpenter emerges from his self-imposed retirement for two tales of made-for-TV terror with the Showtime horror all-stars anthology Masters of Horror. With the episodes "Cigarette Burns" and "Pro-Life", does Carpenter bring back that old spine-chilling Carpenter magic? Nick, Chris, and special guest Stephen Andolfo of Phoenix's own Samurai Comics take a watch to see if these old dogs can pull off new terror tricks.
