John Carpenter sues over Halloween

Has he been tricked out of treats?

No, John Carpenter isn't suing Rob Zombie for butchering his greatest film.

Instead, he's suing Irwin Yablans and distributor Compass International Pictures. His claim? That they've failed to provide quarterly accounting and payments since 2004 for Halloween.
 
Ideally, we'd like to see the situation settled to a synth score. Though we're not sure if that's allowed in LA courts.
