John Carpenter‘s sci-fi cult sensation They Live (1988) will be brought to life this month for its 30th Year Anniversary. Hollywood Horrorfest will honor Carpenter with a special event on Friday, July 27 at the Mayflower Club in North Hollywood, CA.
The event will see legendary composer Alan Howarth receive the festival’s IMPACT award, given in recognition of a body of work that’s positively impacted the horror genre. His work as a composer and sound designer includes such classics as Poltergeist, Raiders of the Lost Ark, The Hunt for Red October, Coppola’s Dracula, Total Recall, and Stargate.
Following the awards will be a live music concert of Carpenter classics: They Live, Halloween, Big Trouble in Little China, and Escape From New York. They Live will screen immediately following the concert, as well as a Q&A with Howarth, actor Peter Jason, and several other very special guests, moderated by horror journalist Pat Jankiewicz.
The event will also host a fundraising benefit for the Vincent Price Art Museum, featuring They Live-themed raffles, with special prizes. The night will include a live DJ spinning Carpenter/Howarth classics, cosplayers, photo ops, horror memorabilia vendors, food & snacks and a full bar.
