John Carpenter Suffers a Seizure

Posted: October 10th, 2010 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
John Carpenter Suffers a SeizureSubmit Comment
According to DreadCentral, 62-year-old director John Carpenter (Halloween, Escape From New York, The Thing) suffered a seizure on Saturday (October 9th) while taking a break from signing autographs at Florida's Spooky Empire show.

An ambulance was immediately called and carpenter was taken away to a hospital. The seizure was apparently mild and Carpenter is not considered to be in critical condition.

Carpenter's promoter revealed that the filmmakers would return to the convention on Sunday to continue to meet fans. No word on whether he was actually able to make it on Sunday.

The Source of the seizure has been confirmed.

Caused due to the possible removal of sunglasses from the "They Live" Remake.

Get Well Mr Carpenter.

In my mind seizure read as stroke and I was really worried.

It could be and I hope it is nothing serious!
