John Carpenter Begins Composing Halloween Score

While filming and editing of Halloween has been completed, it’s now time for the finishing touch…the score. And who better to add the underlying soul of the new film than the man who originally brought the terror of Michael Myers to the big screen years ago. Announced last year as production was underway, original Halloween director John Carpenter was announced to be be doing the score for the new film (As he did the original that he directed). Today, he announced on Twitter that he has begun composing the score, hopefully instilling the same type of skin-crawling tension that he brought all those years ago:

Halloween stars Jamie Lee Curtis, Nick Castle, Judy Greer, Andi Matichak, Will Patton, and Virginia Gardner. It is directed by David Gordon Green (Who co-wrote the script with Danny McBride). It is set to hit theaters October 19th.
