John Carpenter Debuts a Full Track from His New Halloween Score: “The Shape Returns”

Exactly one month from today, the new Halloween movie will land in theatres it will be bringing a new score composed by John Carpenter.  A full track from the upcoming album has now been released by Carpenter, which you can hear below.  This track features elements from the iconic theme and offers up new elements as well.  Like the film itself, the soundtrack will debut October 19th.

Directed by David Gordon Green, in the new film…

“Laurie Strode (Jamie Lee Curtis) comes to her final confrontation with Michael Myers, who has haunted her since she narrowly escaped his killing spree on Halloween night four decades ago.”

“A British documentary crew comes to the States to visit Michael in prison for a retrospective of the maniac’s night of terror — but their project becomes way more interesting when Myers escapes custody, retrieves his signature mask and seeks revenge on Laurie, with others naturally being part of his impressive career body count along the way.

In the decades following the fateful Halloween night that forever altered the former babysitter’s life, Laurie has armed and prepped herself for Michael’s inevitable return — to the detriment of her family, including daughter Karen and granddaughter Allyson.”

In Halloween, the role of Karen Strode will be portrayed by Judy Greer (Jurassic World, Ant-Man).  Karen is Laurie’s daughter, while Andi Matichak (Orange Is The New Black) will serve as the movie’s young lead, Allyson Strode (the daughter of Karen and granddaughter to Laurie).

Rounding out the cast are Drew Scheid (Stranger Things), Miles Robbins (Mozart in the Jungle), Virginia “Ginny” Gardner (Marvel’s Runaways) and Dylan Arnold (Mudbound).  The young actors will play friends of Matichak’s Allyson.

Halloween arrives in theatres October 19th.
