NINE INCH NAILS Posts Cover Of JOHN CARPENTER's Halloween Theme

For the month in which we all change our Twitter handles to something spooky (currently, I'm "Mars Attacks Gotrich"), Nine Inch Nails' Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross have released a spectacular cover of the Halloween theme on Friday the 13th.

"John Carpenter's Halloween by Trent Reznor & Atticus Ross" opens with one minute of gathering white noise before small motifs from Carpenter's Halloween score begin emerging.

At the 4:40 mark, Reznor and Ross take over again with creepy-crawly noises that are ideal for, well, Halloween, before hints of Carpenter's simple, unforgettable hook returns and the musicians introduce a driving electro-beat.

"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".

An auteur known for recording many of his own scores, Carpenter has previously released two albums of non-film compositions: Lost Themes in 2015 and Lost Themes II in 2016.

Iconic horror and thriller film director John Carpenter is readying himself for the October 20 release of Anthology: Movie Themes 1974-1998, a collection of 13 classic themes from cinematic classics that include the likes of The Thing, The Fog and Escape From New York.

Pick up the duo's version of the "Halloween" theme and Anthology: Movie Themes 1974-1998 on Amazon.

This record is a pretty solid overview of John Carpenter's greatest themes, from his very first movie, the zero-budget sci-fi Dark Star, to 1998's supernatural Western, Vampires.
