[dropcap]Horror[/dropcap] icon John Carpenter has jerryrigged a virtual boy and a pair of power gloves in order to become Knightrider…and you know what?  I really want to see this movie! These creepy and nostalgic visuals are for “Night”, taken from his debut non-soundtrack album Lost Themes. It was directed by Gavin Hignight and Ben Verhulst, and stars Carpenter as a man who should probably not bring a baseball bat to a cyberpunk sword fight…

Here’s what Hignight had to say about this fantastic video:

Upon hearing ‘Night’ by John Carpenter, my head was instantly filled with these nighttime highway road dreamscapes. Someone or something, haunted, traveling the road alone in the late hours. Our goal was to take that feeling and put it into a video that paid tribute to the film work of Carpenter but at the same time gave him a new world to play in… in this case, literally through Virtual Reality.
