John Carpenter Called Rob Zombie a "Piece of Shit" but They've Already Made Up
Published Sep 28, 2016It was trouble in paradise for horror fans earlier this week when hard rockin' director Rob Zombie appeared to be at odds with cinematic mastermind and synth genius John Carpenter. Fortunately, the two have already made up — but not without some light name-calling first.
Rob Zombie famously remade Carpenter's Halloween in 2006, and the rocker apparently thought that Carpenter was none too pleased with his interpretation.
Earlier this week, Bloody Disgusting uncovered a talk at New York Film Academy where Carpenter blasted Rob Zombie for being a regular ol' dragula about the whole thing.
The video has since been deleted, but here's what Carpenter had to say about Zombie:
He lied about me. He said I was very cold to him when he told me he was going to make it. Nothing could be further from the truth. I said, 'Make it your own movie, man. This is yours now. Don't worry about me.' I was incredibly supportive. Why that piece of shit lied, I don't know.
Fortunately, the pair have since made up, as Carpenter confirmed in a tweet. Could a joint project be that far off?
To everyone fascinated with the JC/RZ feud, old news. We spoke Sunday, we buried the hatchet. Let's move on.— John Carpenter (@TheHorrorMaster) September 28, 2016
