    Being as though I don't feel like starting another tourney, that and a John Carpenter tourney has been done, I figured a simple Poll would suffice. It's simple, list your top 10 John Carpenter films.


    Carpenter's Best (According to me.)

    1. The Thing
    2. Escape from New York
    3. They Live
    4. Memoirs of an Invisible Man
    5. In the Mouth of Madness
    6. Big Trouble in Little China
    7. Christine
    8. Ghosts of Mars
    9. Assault on Precinct 13
    10. Halloween

    Carpenter is my favorite director of all time, and almost all of his films are great! Here is my top 10 in order:
    1) THE THING/PRINCE OF DARKNESS (These have always been tied as his greatest work in my opinion)
    2) ASSAULT ON PRECINCT 13
    3) THEY LIVE
    4) IN THE MOUTH OF MADNESS
    5) THE FOG
    6) ESCAPE FROM NEW YORK
    7) HALLOWEEN
    8) CHRISTINE
    9) BIG TROUBLE IN LITTLE CHINA
    10) ESCAPE FROM LA

    1. The Thing
    2. Halloween
    3. Assault On Precinct 13
    4. In The Mouth Of Madness
    5. The Fog
    6. Starman
    7. Big Trouble In Little China
    8. Escape From New York
    9. Ghosts Of Mars

    4-6 are pretty much equal and 7-10 are filler. I'm looking forward to seeing Prince Of Darkness if it's ever re-released...
