It seems that performing his music has given John Carpenter a new lease of life, and now we have news concerning a rumour started by the man himself. ‘horrormovies.ca’ reports that Carpenter spoke to ‘Consequence of Sound’ and told them:
“We’re talking to Shudder about doing a theme. And maybe doing a show for them. What would you think about Prince of Darkness as a TV show? Well, maybe. Maybe not. I don’t know. I’m not going to tell you. I’m not going to tell you”.
While I’d personally like to see a TV series based on In The Mouth Of Madness even more [think of the potential!], there’s no doubt that Carpenter’s loopy 1987 horror movie about slime which is the essence of Satan and which can turn people into zombified killers could fare well on the small screen, so let’s cautiously hope that this happens.
