"It is going to scare the shit out of you, I guarantee it."
We are only a week away from the release of David Gordon Green's Halloween and with that comes a new featurette that previews the making of John Carpenter's new score for the film. The video features some of the processes used in taking the old Halloween tunes and giving them a modern facelift,
For John Carpenter, who reunited on the new film with original Halloween star Jamie Lee Curtis, composing the score felt like a homecoming. Not only had he not worked on a Halloween movie in 35 years, he hadn’t composed a soundtrack since his 2001 sci-fi thriller Ghosts of Mars.
“It was great,” Carpenter said of the experience. “It was transforming. It was not a movie I directed, so I had a lot of freedom in creating the score and getting into the director's head. I was proud to serve David Gordon Green’s vision.”
Watch the video below and catch the film in theaters on October 19th.
