Even though Rob Zombie‘s remake of John Carpenter’s Halloween arrived with a bit of a thud in 2007, the slasher had at least one redeeming quality that made the movie a suspenseful reimagining of the horror classic. Tyler Bates delivered a haunting score that put a modern spin on the classic theme created by Carpenter himself. The composer brought in experimental instrumentation to make it sound a little more aggressively menacing, and the primary theme sounds as if it’s coming from a slightly out of tune piano or a broken music box.
Now you can bring home Rob Zombie’s Halloween scores, from both the first movie and the sequel, in the form of a pair of new vinyl soundtracks from Waxwork Records. Not only do the vinyl soundtracks feature cues from the scores, but also dialogue from the movies, and classic rock songs from the movie’s soundtrack. Get the details on Rob Zombie’s Halloween vinyl soundtracks and find out where you can get them below. Read More »
