If you dig horror movies, there’s a good chance you know and love the name John Carpenter. The filmmaker has many horror movies to his credit, including the original Halloween, The Thing, Christine, and many, many more. He’s basically a staple in the genre, and in addition to being a great filmmaker, he’s also well known for the moody and terrifying soundtrack he composed for Halloween. So who better could the streaming service Shudder — which specializes in horror movies — get to score their product?
“We wanted to create a one-of-a-kind audio identity for Shudder and the first person we thought of was John Carpenter,” Shudder GM Craig Engler said in a statement. “We approached John and to our delight, he was enthusiastic about the idea and came up with an iconic theme that will enchant and thrill Shudder members every time they hear it.”
But it’s not like they can have a two-minute version of this song play at the beginning of each movie they stream. So in addition to the full version above, we have a short, five-second version for you to feast your ears on.
Of course, this isn’t the only piece of composition Carpenter has done this year. He also composed and performed the music in this year’s Halloween sequel. Apparently, fans just can’t get enough of this dude’s music, and who could blame them?
What do you think of the Shudder music? Sound off down below!
