"No matter where you go, there you are."


Listen to Trent Reznor’s version of the Halloween theme


John Carpenter – The Master of Horror is set to release Anthology: Movie Themes 1974-1998, a collection of 13 of Carpenter’s classic movie themes newly recorded with the collaborators that worked on his Lost Themes albums, next Friday, October 20th via Sacred Bones. To celebrate the impending release, Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross have shared a new version of Carpenter’s iconic “Halloween” theme.

“I clearly remember my friends and I at 13 years old conning our parents into letting us see Halloween when it came out in 1978. We left the theater forever changed. We were damaged and scarred, with the shit genuinely scared out of us and that theme stuck firmly in our heads. John Carpenter, it’s your fault that I turned out the way I did.” Trent Reznor

Carpenter will also be writing the score for the new Halloween movie. He was speaking to Billboard and said, “I am an executive producer and it looks clear to me that I’ve made a deal to do the music.

There are many options. I’ll be consulting with the director to see what he feels. I could create a new score, we could update the old score and amplify it, or we could combine those two things. I’ll have to see the movie to see what it requires.”

Blumhouse has already confirmed Jamie Lee Curtis will return to the Halloween series to play Laurie Strode.

It seems the new film will continue on from the original Halloween and ignore the others. This makes sense as Laurie was killed in 2002’s Halloween: Resurrection.

David Gordon Green (Pineapple Express, Your Highness) will direct Halloween and co-write the script for the film with Danny McBride (Alien: Covenant).

Judy Greer (Ant-Man, Archer, Jurassic World) is in negotiations to join the film in the role of Laurie’s daughter, according to Deadline.
