Soundtrack-Universe reviews Halloween Kills (Carpenters/Davies)   Tuesday, October 19, 2021 (1:53 p.m.) 

Greetings all,

Well, this was not scheduled to be part of HMSM 2021, but when a new Halloween score comes along, one must review it. Thus we come to my take on the sequel to the 2018 sequel/reboot, Halloween Kills. Music by John Carpenter, Cody Carpenter and Daniel A. Davies.

Enjoy....

After listening to Riley’s Rabin Recommendations, I’m going to take this opportunity to ask the John Carpenter fans of the scoreboard: What are his best thematic scores that I should listen to? I’ve already heard Christine, the various Halloweens, The Fog, plus Morricone’s The Thing, and have found at least some degree of enjoyment in all of them (Halloween III and 2018 share the cake in my book, so far).

Definitely checkout Big Trouble in Little China and Escape from New York. In the Mouth of Madness is also really good, but it's very much an atmosphere above all else endeavor. Killer Main titles piece, though. I would recommend some more, but most of the ones I'd say you've already explored. tongue

Haha, thanks for these! I’ll probably give Mouth of Madness a spin anyways, just in case it’s one of the handful of less thematic scores I end up loving (The VVitch, anyone? Now bring on Korven’s Resident Evil!).
Actually, has anyone heard Village of the Damned? I know nothing about the score specifically, but I noticed it recently(?) got a deluxe edition. Doesn’t mean it’s any good, but clearly *someone* wants it…

I would also recommend his Lost Themes albums.

Um, wait - someone actually listened to one of my RabinRec’s…?

I’d say I was speechless, but that’s clearly impossible, so I’ll just say….YeeeeeeEEEEAAAHHHH!

Possibly, probably... have no idea when, though. Outside of trying to cover any Big Cinema Releases that come out, everything else I cover pretty much boils down to what I want to talk about (or sometimes feel I need to talk about). That said, I'm open to any suggestions, though I make no promises when I'll get to any of them. smile

But I might have forgotten to also suggest the score for Seven Worlds, One Planet (composed by Hans Zimmer and Jacob Shea), though. Have fun!
