Legendary Horror and Sci-FI director John Carpenter not only brought us ‘Escape From New York,’ but also brought us ‘Halloween,’ which over the years has seen countless sequels.

In a new interview for Giant Bomb Carpenter expressed regret that the horror movie, which introduced us to Michael Myers had not been a stand alone film.

“I felt that there was no more story after the original. But audiences wanted to see Michael Myers return again and again. Or maybe it was producers who wanted him to return again and again for reasons having to do with profit.”

There were eight Halloween films released between 1978 and 2002, before the release of two remakes in 2007 and 2009.
