Halloween roars into theaters tonight. To help celebrate the occasion, Sacred Bones has uploaded the entire John Carpenter score online for you to enjoy before visiting Haddonfield once more. The score, by Carpenter, Cody Carpenter, and Daniel Davies is brilliant, and it is a great sonic sequel to the original’s iconic score itself. (Check out our review of the film here) Listen to the full 45 minutes of Carpenter goodness below!
The film takes place 40 years after the events of that fateful Halloween night that Michael came home in 1978. Since then, Michael is now in an asylum. A British film crew decides to do a documentary on his exploits, and wouldn’t you know it, he escapes. Getting ahold of his iconic mask, he makes a beeline for Haddonfield to finish the job. What he does not know is that Laurie (the returning Jamie Lee Curtis) has been prepping for this confrontation as well. The two will face off for what may or may not be the last time where it all began.
Halloween, starring Jamie Lee Curtis, Judy Greer, Andi Matichak, Virginia Gardner, Will Patton, Miles Robbins, Jefferson Hall, James Jude Courtney, and Nick Castle as The Shape, directed by David Gordon Green, hits theaters tonight.
The soundtrack, scored by John Carpenter, Cody Carpenter, and Daniel Davies is out tomorrow in stores, and can also be ordered right now here.
