The new “Halloween” now only serves as a direct follow-up to John Carpenter’s original 1978 film, it’s also a return of his involvement to the franchise after a several decade absence.
Along with producing and consulting, his biggest contribution to the new David Gordon Green-directed film is a new score. With one or two exceptions, Carpenter was famous for doing the scores for all his films, famed synth soundtracks that he’s been touring in recent years.
His original “Halloween” score became one of the most recognisable and iconic of all time, and now Sacred Bones Records has released a brief snippet of the score along with details on where you can pre-order the full soundtrack for the new film on vinyl. Click here for those.
Speaking of the franchise, Universal Studios’ Halloween Horror Nights has selected “Halloween 4: The Return of Michael Myers” as the film that will serve as the subject of the theme park’s annual event starting on September 14th.
The mazes will transport guests to the suburban town of Haddonfield on Halloween night where Myers has escaped Smith’s Grove Sanitarium and is hungry for revenge. This time, he relentlessly stalks his niece Jamie as his next victim, stopping at nothing to kill her.
