John Carpenter’s Halloween with Behind the Mask: The Rise of Leslie Vernon co-writer David J. Stieve
Jinx welcomes David J. Stieve to the show this week! Mr. Stieve is the co-writer of the fantastic satirical horror comedy Behind the Mask: The Rise of Leslie Vernon, and he’s chosen John Carpenter’s seminal slasher masterpiece Halloween for discussion.
One of the greatest horror films ever made, Halloween inspires a conversation which touches on its themes, its “Ahab” and “Survivor Girl”, whether or not the film provides any sort of moral commentary on its teenaged characters, and the film’s many sequels and remakes. Along the way, Mister Stieve discusses how the film inspired Behind the Mask, and where that long-awaited Leslie Vernon follow-up is currently at.
It’s a great chat with a wonderful guest, and is the perfect way to celebrate the season that’s now upon us!
