This is a video essay about the point of view in John Carpenter's films.
Throughout many of his movies, we can see a clear movement: from being the subject (PoV of the camera) to being the object of the look.
From watching to being watched.
Films used (in order of appearance):
- They live! (1988)
- Halloween (1978)
- Starman (1984)
- In the Mouth of Madness (1994)
- The Thing (1982)
- The Prince of Darkness (1987)
