Yahoo! brings some news that should please the horror fans out there. Seems that legendary scare-master John Carpenter ("Halloween") will be returning to the director’s chair for the indie flick "The 13th Apostle." Screenwriter Paul Margolis had his script chosen from among many submitted to the "John Carpenter Presents" program, and the plot is desribed as such:
"The story follows the investigation of a series of gruesome murders that force a Pittsburgh detective to exorcise his own demons while uncovering an Internet-based serial killers club. Averse to technology, he teams up with a stockbroker, and together the duo tackles the investigation." Mr. Carpenter, who is presently acting as a producer on an upcoming remake of "The Fog," has not directed a movie since 2001’s "Ghosts of Mars."
