John Carpenter on The Walking Dead and Horror Consumerism

Horror icon John Carpenter, the man behind the some of the genre’s most classic films weighed in on “The Walking Dead” and the current state of horror on Marc Maron’s WTF podcast.   When referring to AMC’s top rated show he said, That was a movie that George Romero made back in ’68 [Night of the Living Dead] and they have milked…people have milked it and they’re STILL milking it. It’s unreal.”  He also suggested that the horror genre wasdue for a resurgence.” 

What do our hardcore horror fans think?  Is it time for less rehash and more innovation?
