Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross cover John Carpenter's 'Halloween' theme

In addition to being the writer/director of iconic films like the original Halloween, The Thing, Big Trouble In Little China and They Live, Carpenter is also renowned for the music scores he's composed for this own work. Like any holiday, Halloween has its own soundtrack. We left the theater forever changed. We were damaged and scarred, with the sh!t genuinely scared out of us and that theme stuck firmly in our heads.

Reznor and Finch recorded their version of the track in celebration of a collection of a new John Carpenter album entitled Anthology: Movie Themes 1974-1998, which includes 13 newly-recorded versions of his movie themes realised by Carpenter, his son Cody and godson Daniel Davies. "I'll have to see the movie to see what it requires". As promised, Trent Reznor has unleashed his cover of John Carpenter's classic Halloween theme - a redo you can now stream in full.

We're sure Carpenter will happily take the credit for helping shape the path of Trent Reznor!

Samsung may roll out Bixby 2.0 on October 18
Samsung even launched an update that can disable and turn off the dedicated button of its digital assistant . Bixby arrived with the Galaxy S8 handsets, but wasn't complete upon the model's launch for many users.

Reznor and Ross recreate the atmosphere Carpenter originally achieved when he penned the theme 39 years ago. The music to me acts as nearly another character in the film.

Few pairings could be so unnervingly ideal as Trent Reznor covering John Capenter's theme for 1978 horror film Halloween, but here we are, on this blessed Friday the 13, receiving just that.

John Carpenter shared a statement of his own, saying that Reznor and Ross' version of his song "does unbelievable justice to the original". "I'm impressed." He's now at work on a new Halloween project, as well. Let the other trick'r'treaters know what you think in the comment section below.
