A great John Carpenter Q&A session hosted by the New York Film Academy has surfaced and it’s a shame great words of wisdom have been lost among a cloud of controversy.
It’s been making the rounds that John Carpenter laid into Rob Zombie during the 2011 Q&A session. Why it took so long to surface is incredible given the fact that Carpenter has, usually, been reluctant to comment on Zombie’s take on his iconic film.

Carpenter himself commented on the controversy via Twitter:
