Giant Bomb recently had the opportunity to briefly chat with legendary horror director John Carpenter, who is a vocal fan of video games — horror or otherwise — and has even dabbled in them with F.E.A.R. 3. He’s expressed interest in directing a Dead Space film, so he obviously enjoys his horror games.
Though, surprisingly, he doesn’t dissect them. You would think a guy who’s been crafting horror films for nearly four decades would enjoy deconstructing games like Silent Hill, which he enjoys, but instead, he says he just immerses himself in them. More after the jump.
When asked if he was interested in making his own horror game, Carpenter said he’d “I’d love to work on an original video game. Maybe the opportunity will present itself.” It wouldn’t be original, but I wouldn’t mind a decent Halloween game.
How about you — would you be interested in a horror game from John Carpenter?
