Nine Inch Nails' Trent Reznor and Attitus Ross rework John Carpenter's Halloween

13 October 2017

Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross of Nine Inch Nails have proven themselves to be one of film's best duos in soundtrack scoring, creating incredible soundscapes for movies like The Social Network, Gone Girl, The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo and more. In anticipation of the album, Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross have shared their version of Carpenter's "Halloween" theme, which you can listen to above courtesy of the Sacred Bones Records YouTube channel.

It's Friday the 13, it's October, and were pretty damn close to Halloween.

The Nine Inch Nails singer, along with collaborator Ross, stayed faithful to Carpenter's theme, adding only atmosphere and gloom to the original melody. We left the theater forever changed.

As soon as Jason hit the stage, he performed for a bit and then felt like it was time to speak out about being back on the stage. He was performing at the time of the shooting that killed 58 people and injured over 500.

John Carpenter's scores for the first three Halloween films are fantastically phantasmagorical, slipping into that space between wonder and terror like spiked walls closing around your doom.

You can download the theme here, and John Carpenter will release a collection of his famous theme songs all re-recorded next Friday under the moniker Anthology: Movie Themes 1974-1998. Those sit alongside the driving, Led Zeppelin-influenced Assault on Precinct 13 theme, Halloween's creepy 5/4 piano riff, and the eerie synth work of The Fog.

In the weeks following the album's release, Carpenter will hit the road again, playing both his well known movie themes and material from his two Lost Themes albums.
