Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross (The Social Network, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo) have teamed up again, this time to provide a reworked version of the score to John Carpenter's 1978 film Halloween. 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. As promised, Trent Reznor has unleashed his cover of John Carpenter's classic Halloween theme - a redo you can now stream in full.

The cover arrives just over a month before Carpenter's Anthology Tour performance at Royale on November 15, so consider this the official start to the show countdown, with Halloween day being a convenient halfway point. Carpenter also recently confirmed he would handling the music for the upcoming Halloween reboot/sequel, due out in 2018. I'll be consulting with the director to see what he feels. But John Carpenter's new movie themes anthology will be out by then, so that would be a bit late. "I'll have to see the movie to see what it requires".

At almost eight minutes long, the pair's reworked version is just as chilling as the 1978 original.

Carpenter said, "Laurie Strode comes to her final confrontation with Michael Myers, the masked figure who has haunted her since she narrowly escaped his killing spree on Halloween night four decades ago".

Carpenter will executive produce with Malek Akkad producing for Trancas and Jason Blum producing for Blumhouse. Zanne Devine and David Thwaites will oversee for Miramax which is co-financing with Blumhouse.
