Disco Undead, part 3: "I met this six-year-old child, with this blank, pale, emotionless face and the blackest eyes...the devil's eyes."

Happy Halloween! Here's some ear-candy to celebrate, an update on John Carpenter's classic theme from the film that gave new meaning to "The Boogeyman."

Tobe Hooker - Haddonfield Fear Factory

The third installment in the Halloween series has absolutely no relation to the rest of the films, which means no Michael Myers. I've never even seen it, but I have to believe it's god-awful. Redeeming factor: John Carpenter stayed on to do the music (and produce, of course), and turned out a theme on par with his original, though composed entirely with synthesizers to give it a feel of its own.

Legowelt - Season of Samhain

Here's some bonus John Carpenter. Actually, The Thing was scored by the legendary Ennio Morricone, marking one of the few instances where Carpenter outsourced the musical duties on one of his films.

Fictional Character - From Another World

Have fun tonight! Be sure to check your candy for razor blades!

I love me some John Carpenter. I sampled the theme to "Escape From New York" many moons ago and called it "Escape From LA" (this was waaaay before the sequel mind you).
