Review quote

"Absolutely gorgeous...an excellent visual memoir." - Project Fandom "Gottlieb-Walker has an amazing eye and the best compliment I can give to her is that there are at least 10 images in this book I'd buy large prints of if I could." - Aint it Cool

"Whilst On Set with John Carpenter can be appreciated on an aesthetic level, if one so chooses to look a little deeper, then this collection can offer a deeper discussion and appreciation of the still image; it's relationship to the moving image and the triangular collaborative relationship of artist, subject and audience." - Pop Matters

"You can have your blu-ray box sets; this is the HALLOWEEN collectible of the year." - Badassdigest.com
