John Landis attempts to kill something else...

John Carpenter is questioned about a new TV project:

Q: What's going on with "Masters of Horror?" [An upcoming anthology show.]

CARPENTER: Well, it's a little series that we're doing for Showtime. We have an hour — each of us has an hour to shoot in 10 days. And the first director they got was John Landis. He's now way over budget and way over schedule. So there may not be any more "Masters of Horror." He may do them in.

You've still got that magic touch, Landis!

If you don't think John Landis is a Master of Horror, then buddy, you haven't seen BLUES BROTHERS 2000!

Thank you! G'night!

On a serious note: It sucks he could possibly kill a potentially cool project by being an idiot.

"John Landis attempts to kill something else..."

Ooo, ooo, you are so not getting invited to his next party!

Q: How did they know Vic Morrow had dandruff?

A: They found his Head and Shoulders in the bushes.

You would think that they would be a lot tighter with budgetary spending on a tv show.

Copernicus brings up a good point. Why would anyone do a series on horror movie directors, and choose John Landis?

Sure, sure, the mediocre American Werewolf things. Out of how many films?

He has made some good comedies. Let him do a show on that.

Don't forget the mediocre Innocent Blood and Scholck
