Earlier this year I was asked to contribute an illustration for an online fanzine – Laurie Strode from Halloween and Alice Hardy from Friday 13th. I have to admit I’ve never actually seen the latter, having only seen Friday 13th 3D, and Halloween 6? (the one in the New York sewers). I’m not fond of slasher films, even though I love John Carpenter. It’s a pity the Halloween series didn’t follow his original idea for an unrelated anthology series only connected by the date. Instead it spawned a genre of diminishing returns and odious sexual politics.
