John Carpenter Promotes The Halloween Spotify Playlist And Teases His Latest Score

It’s no secret that outside of being a legendary filmmaker and, as his Twitter handle suggests, a master of horror, John Carpenter dabbles in music. As early as 1976, with his film Assault on Precinct 13, Carpenter has been composing music for film as well as independently from the screen. His score for his original Halloween has gone down as one of the most memorable scores in the genre of horror films and within the last three years, he has released both an original album (Lost Themes) and a remastered album of all his film scores (Anthology: Movie Themes 1974-1998).

Earlier today on his Twitter account, Carpenter promoted the newly created Spotify collection Halloween 2018 Official Playlist. The list features 19 different eerie and suspenseful tracks, most of which are composed by Carpenter with a few others that fit the mood. Carpenter went on to tease that in the very near future, his latest score for the upcoming Halloween film will be featured on this very playlist.

While his works are not considered the highest level of complexity, Carpenter’s compositions in the horror genre create the perfect setting for a creepy and potentially frightening atmosphere. They enhance that “there might be something around the corner” feeing or create that shiver up your spine that makes you feel like someone is stalking you, even though you don’t see anybody around. For many, it isn’t officially time for Halloween until a John Carpenter score has been played. Happily, this writer started playing his own personal Halloween playlist late last month… and has now added this playlist to his library.

It’s Halloween; everyone’s entitled to one good scare.
