EDITORS’ NOTES

If you're still having nightmares about Michael Myers, John Carpenter's soundtrack is guaranteed to provoke a few more flashbacks. Instead of an orchestra, Carpenter uses the creepy sounds of old-school synthesizers, building the mood around two main themes. One is the opening title's tension-building piano riff that returns in a minor key during "Loomis and Shape's Car." The other is the chilly, dissonant chords that are heard on "Michael Kills Judith" and "Better Check the Kids,” whose titles alone are not for the fainthearted.

Play at a Haunted House!

If you are the kind that like to volunteer to work or even host your own Haunted House fun, then this is perfect for you. Yes it would get old if you sit down to listen to it, but these songs are familiar to alot of people and it will click in their heads.
Play this these songs in your Meyers themed Hallloween Haunt and you are sure to get friends, family, and strangers on high alert!
