I understand if it's a tired subject, talking about Halloween, but like said with Halloween II, there is a lot we don't know behind the movie and conception. I'm sure, had Universal been on the ball about a decade ago, he might have actually done some interviews before everyone was tired of talking about it. It's just sad, because the interest of the fans grows and grows, but Carpenter's diminishes.
If you watch some of his later interviews, it seems quite clear that his "fire" for filmmaking went out long ago. Really, you get the feeling watching these that he'd rather undergo a protracted root canal session than talk about any of them. Which is, of course, terrible for the people who are interested in his opinions/reminisces of the filming processes for those films, but if he's no longer interested in talking about his work, then I say respect his wishes and simply don't ask him for interviews.
