Next week is set to be huge for not only metalcore fans (with Ice Nine Kills dropping The Silver Scream 2), but horror aficionados will be screaming for delight when iconic film composer John Carpenter unleashes his latest piece of work for one of the horror universe’s most notable icons… Michael Myers!
Halloween Kills, the sequel to the blockbuster reboot/continuation of 2018’s Halloween will hit movie screens on October 28th but before we get to see Michael slice and dice his way through Haddonfield once again, the official soundtrack will land in our streaming platforms on October 15th, giving us a chance to get a feel for the film before we venture inside to witness director David Gordon Green‘s next instalment of the four decade long franchise starring the scream queen herself, Jamie Lee Curtis.
Carpenter, alongside son Cody Carpenter and Daniel Davies have joined forces to capture the essence first felt in the original 1978 flick, which set a precedence for the slasher movie format for years to come. Fast forward 43 years and we’re about to witness the progression and growth of John Carpenter’s almost 50 year career and relationship with Myers, the maniac behind the knife.
For those not up to speed Halloween (1978) and Halloween (2018) are connected. 40 years apart from each other and ignoring all of the other films released following its debut. Instead, we’re being treated to a new series franchise, based in the same story-line as the original, with Halloween Kills being the second sequel to the first film and preceding the highly anticipated climax Halloween Ends, set for release in October 2022.
Whether you love spoilers and want to get a sneak peek into the movie OR you want something to thrash on the way home from the cinemas, go no further than Halloween Kills OST – dropping Friday, October 15th via Sacred Bones Records.
Psssst! Halloween Kills hits cinemas on October 28th in Australia.
