From co-writing/directing the original Halloween back in 1978 to scoring the most recent installment just last year, you could say that John Carpenter‘s legendary career has truly come full circle, that 40-year-span packed with incredible game-changing achievements like The Thing, Escape from New York, They Live, The Fog, and the list goes on and on.

Needless to say, Carpenter’s career is worthy of celebration, and the Cannes Film Festival did just that last night by honoring the horror master with the Golden Coach award!

As Reuters notes, the award was presented to Carpenter “by the French directors’ guild at the opening ceremony of the Director’s Fortnight.”

“It’s that transportation of an audience through the world of light and the shadows around it that I’m proud to be a part of,” Carpenter eloquently said at the ceremony.

What’s next for Carpenter? A new horror movie, perhaps…?
