John Carpenter Suffers a Seizure at Convention


Some disturbing news unfortunately has come from Florida's Spooky Empire Show as legendary filmmaker John Carpenter suffered a seizure at the convention.

According to DreadCentral Carpenter suffered a seizure around 4:00 PM (ET) Saturday, October 9th, while he was taking a break from signing autographs. An ambulance was called, and Carpenter was taken away. Sources at the show say the seizure was minor and John is not in a  serious condition.

Here is the crazy thing, apparently the shows promoter has announced that Carpenter is set to return to the Spooky Empire today (Sunday) to continue to meet and sign things for his fans. If that is true then Carpenter is a machine and shows his true dedication to his fans.

From myself and everyone here at we wish John a speedy recovery and send him our best wishes, you are a true legend John. Take it easy!

We will keep you informed on any updates as they come in.
