American cinematographer Dean Cundey, noted for his work on special effects-laden Hollywood extravaganzas, debuted with "Where the Red Fern Grows" (1974) and shot similarly undistinguished films until teaming with writer-director John Carpenter for "Halloween" (1978), a smashing success and a modern horror classic. Here he displayed his flair for composing evocative images of terror on a modest budget by using as little light as possible. Cundey went on to lens a series of films directed or produced by Carpenter ("The Fog" 1980; "Halloween II" 1981; "Escape From New York" 1981; "The Thing" 1982; "Halloween III: Season of the Witch" 1982; "Big Trouble in Little China" 1986). He worked on Richard Franklin's surprisingly good sequel, "Psycho II" (1983), and shot several TV-movies and pilots, including Wes Craven's "Invitation to Hell" (ABC, 1984).
