Halloween Kills - Original Motion Picture Soundtrack Score By John Carpenter LP Vinyl Record (Australian Exclusive Orange With Red Splatter Coloured Vinyl)

It's just five notes plucked out on a piano, so sparsely arranged that it feels like barely more than a sketch, so simple that an untrained player can easily pick it up, but it's one of cinema's greatest musical accomplishments. By now, John Carpenter's hypnotic theme to his 1978 horror masterpiece “Halloween" has embodied slasher-stalker anxiety for generations of filmgoers, and woven itself so into pop culture that it's become musical shorthand for the entire horror genre. 

Carpenter has been composing and recording his own scores since he created the soundtrack to his first film, 1974's Dark Star, on a EMS VCS 3 modular synthesiser. While originally a cost-cutting measure, he continued scoring most of his films even after he started making multiplex staples in the 80s and 90s, with the soundtracks to the “Halloween" series, "They Live", and "Escape from New York" becoming classics in their own right. 

Since 2015, Carpenter's released three albums of original music on Sacred Bones, created alongside Cody Carpenter and Daniel Davies, with remixes provided by some of his more notable fans. Like the film itself, Carpenter's score to the second instalment of the new “Halloween" trilogy, “Halloween" Kills, stays true to the spirit of what made the 1978 original great while bringing it firmly into the present. 

The music featured on "Halloween Kills - Original Motion Picture Soundtrack" is unmistakably Carpenter: the sinister vintage synth tones, the breath-stealing sense of menace that he conjures with just a few dissonant notes. But with a broader sonic palette, new digital techniques at his disposal, and a deeper sense of musicality, the Halloween Kills score is the work of a master artist who nearly 50 years into his career continues to push his creative limits and find new ways to thrill and terrify his fans.
