London, July 13 (ANI): John Carpenter, the helmer of some classic big-screen thrillers, is also not immune to fear completely.

When recently faced with the prospect of performing music in front of audiences for the first time, the 68-year-old admitted "I was terrified!" reports the Independent.

However, the filmmaker even admitted that his fear dissolved on the opening night of his current tour, in which he and his band play selections from his film scores alongside new songs from two recent albums.

"I started playing and I realised, 'This is easy!'" he recalls.

"As a director, you stand behind the camera and you sweat and cry and scream for months. Performing, you play for an hour and half, and you're done! It's so fun," added Carpenter.

Meanwhile, some mention-able horrors by the director are ' Halloween,' ' The Thing,' ' They Live.' (ANI)
