We left the theater forever changed. We were damaged and scarred, with the shit genuinely scared out of us and that theme stuck firmly in our heads.

John Carpenter, it’s your fault that I turned out the way I did.”

Carpenter will release a collection of newly recorded versions of his theme songs next Friday, October 20th. That set will be titled “Anthology: Movie Themes 1974-1998“.
