The Loft Cinema Shines A Spotlight On John Carpenter This Month, Here's Some Haikus About It

Posted By on Tue, Oct 1, 2013 at 3:00 PM

Starting tomorrow night and continuing each Wednesday night in October, the Loft Cinema will be screening five films from sci-fi/horror auteur John Carpenter. You're not going to want to miss The Thing, Big Trouble in Little China, Assault on Precinct 13, Christine and Halloween on the big screen. To cap it all off, there will be a post-Carpenter shindig on the Loft Cinema's Mooney Backlot Bar & Lounge on October 30 with music provided by yours truly. In the Tooting My Own Horn Department: I'm also the host of Deep Red Radio on 91.3 FM KXCI.

Previously on The Range I gave you five reasons to check out Carpenter's Escape From New York.To chop it up a bit, here's a haiku for each film.


The Thing

Monster, snow and blood
An outer space alien
And Kurt Russel's beard

Big Trouble in Little China

The Pork Chop Express
Zips through Chinatown street wars
Need 6-Demon Bag

Assault on Precinct 13

Gangs roam during night
Prisoner asks "gotta smoke?"
Bullets fly, blood spills

Christine

The Plymouth Fury
Arnie meets car, falls in love
Death by rock 'n' roll

Halloween

Little boy stabs sis
Cue William Shatner mask
The best slasher film
