Favorite John Carpenter?

It's a tough call for me: The Thing or Escape From New York. If I had to choose I'd go w/ Escape From New York as it is the ultimate drive-in movie! Anyone else want to impart their favorite Carpenter and why?

Awesome. Good choice for discussion. I just did a review of Prince of Darkness.

My favorite would have to be...

THE THING!

That movie is uncontrollable. I wouldn't change a single second of it. Even after watching it 50 times it still gets me. Part of it is the completely unrelenting tension building. You start in a tense environment and the movie doesn't give you a single moment of relief throughout. Some of the most original monster FX ever, too.

Hard to go against THE THING. I almost went w/ that film too. I rewatched it a couple of years ago and was blown away by how much tension and claustrophobia that is in THE THING.
