I just finished watching one of John Carpenter‘s earliest movies. Someone’s Watching Me! (1978) is a very obscure Carpenter movie, filmed for TV, and featuring a number of what I guess would be called prototypical Carpenter signatures. After a few minutes I started taking notes. Here are a few of my notes:
-Stars David Birney (a well respected audiobook narrator)
–Adrienne Barbeau‘s character is a lesbian (and that has nothing at all to do with the plot)
-The main character, Leigh Michaels (played by Lauren Hutton) works at a Los Angeles TV station with the call sign WJHC (J.H.C. = John Howard Carpenter)
-Leigh Michaels lives in “Arkham Towers”
This got me thinking about other John Carpenter movies I’d watched – which reminded me of a podcast I participated in a couple years ago. I did a podcast commentary on John Carpenter’s The Thing with Christiana Ellis, Mike Meitin, Adam Morey, Brandon Hill, Tee Morris, and Philippa Ballantine for the Hey Want To Watch A Movie? podcast.
