In 2018, David Gordon Green’s Halloween, starring icon Jamie Lee Curtis, slaughtered the box office, earning more than $250 million worldwide, becoming the highest grossing chapter in the four-decade franchise and setting a new record for the biggest opening weekend in history for a horror film starring a woman. The film had the distinction of being the first film in the series with creator John Carpenter’s direct involvement since 1982’s Halloween III: Season of the Witch. Carpenter served as an executive producer, a creative consultant, and, thrillingly, as a soundtrack composer, alongside his collaborators from his recent solo albums, Cody Carpenter and Daniel Davies.

Now the scream team is back for the highly anticipated follow up, Halloween Kills and Carpenter has returned to the studio with son Cody Carpenter and godson Daniel Davies to further expand on the iconic score that forever changed the course of horror cinema and synthesizer music. The 2018 Halloween movie soundtrack received unanimous praise and brought a rich and ominous depth to the original theme music that was famously recorded on a shoestring budget in 1978. The trio utilized an array of software synths, vintage analogue equipment, and live instrumentation including a Dave Smith OB-6, bowed guitar, Roland Juno, Moog, Roland System 1, Roland

System 8, different guitar pedals, mellotron, and piano. Now with the Halloween Kills score director Green has pushed the musicians to be more experimental and take their modern sound to a chilling new level.

Standout tracks like “Unkillable” and “Rampage” feature skittering synths over deep four on the floor bass that create a full psychosis of dread before the guitars smash into the song like a semi creating a confusion over whether to headbang, dance, or run for you life. More tragic songs like “Michael’s Legend” and “Strode’s at the Hospital” showcase exquisite and delicate piano playing and prove the range of orchestration this team is capable of executing with mastery and vision. Like all of Carpenter’s legendary soundtracks Halloween Kills features incredible standalone music that like their Lost Themes trilogy of music made for imaginary films can be enjoyed thoroughly with or without the context of the film.

    You're right. Looks like they just bumped up the price I'll adjust. Thanks for the heads up.

    Very underrated electronic musician is Carpenter. IMO up there with the likes of Tangerine Dream, Vangelis and Jarre.

    Whatever you think of the movie (it sucked), the soundtrack once again delivers.
    Never saw them. I think it was the overhype at the time that turned me off.

    Felt the same way about the constant media talking about Stranger Things everywhere. Finally saw it all this week and burned through the lot. Really liked it.

    This vinyl I think is great though as a display piece or as a nice cheap version of the classic theme. (edited)

    Track 2. Always a classic Worth the price for that one alone.
    Especially if playing at night without warning (edited)

    Surprised there isn’t a track titled ‘Evil Dies Tonight!’.

    A good price though there's plenty of availability less than the Juno quoted price e.g. Rarewaves £21.56
