* InCaseYouForgotWhoWroteIt: John Carpenter is particularly notorious for adding his name to all of his films' titles (such as ''Film/{{Halloween 1978}}'', ''Body Bags'', ''Film/JohnCarpentersVampires'', ''Film/EscapeFromNewYork'', and ''Film/EscapeFromLA''). He even did it with the ''Series/MastersOfHorror'' episode he directed, "John Carpenter's Cigarette Burns" (and it was the only episode title in two seasons that noted its director).

* SomethingCompletelyDifferent: ''Film/{{Starman}}'' may come as a surprise to anyone who is familiar with most of his films as it is the most light-hearted work of his whole career. It is mostly devoided of the violent and bleak thematics commonly seen in his other movies, despite it occasionally feature moments where the pacifist alien played by JeffBridges learns about the darker aspects of human condition.

Why did Napoleon Wilson kill those people? Why did Snake Plisskin fly combat operations over Leningrad? Why is Mars ruled by a matriarchy? The world may never know....
