Saturday Frights: John Carpenter’s “Night” (Official Music Video)

Saturday-Frights-Sean-Hartter
Hello there, dear viewers! I have just returned early this morning to the Retroist Vault, having completed my work in Haddonfield. Heh, heh. I do humbly apologize about leaving Victor in charge of your entertainment choices on Saturday Frights these last few weeks but what options did I have?

Perhaps the news that we are about to record a new Saturday Frights radio broadcast might lessen the sting of his dubious tastes?

Judging by some of your electronic correspondences that you have been kind enough to send me, some of you feel that I am not a Hepcat, that I may have lost touch with what you youngsters find to be enjoyable music. This is not so. To prove these baseless accusations are false I present a musical short featuring the famous Director and Songsmith, John Carpenter.

(Ahem. Thanks to Io9 for the heads up on this music video featuring John Carpenter entitled “Night”, which is a track from his “Lost Themes”album. The video was directed by Gavin Hignight and Ben Verhulst – Vic)

The Projectionist

Lurking in the bowels of the Retroist Vault, the Projectionist comforts himself with the dreams of celluloid glory of days gone by. With his assistant, Daniel XIII, in the quiet time of the night he serves as host in what has been dubbed the Haunted Drive-In. Bringing films to the entertainment starved masses the Haunted Drive-In projector roars to life and shines brightly once again...
