Nine Inch Nails genius Trent Reznor and his bandmate and collaborator Atticus Ross have kept their promised and released a cover of John Carpenter’s theme to his 1978 film Halloween. Carpenter himself will release a collection next Friday (20th) that consists of newly recorded theme songs entitled Anthology: Movie Themes 1974-1998. You can order that one here.
Reznor stated the following about the film and iconic theme song:
“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.”
