Subsequently, Mondo will be continuing with one release a month concluding this October with the original John Carpenter score to the 1978 classic that started it all. The audio for these releases have all been re-mastered and the previously released vinyl versions of Halloween, Halloween II and Halloween III will feature all new artwork.

“To celebrate 40 years of the HALLOWEEN franchise, Death Waltz Recording Company is thrilled to bring you a newly re-mastered version of the score to HALLOWEEN 4: THE RETURN OF MICHAEL MYERS on vinyl for the first time in 30 years, mastered in 2018 by Alan Howarth. This score marked the first time Howarth was working solo within the HALLOWEEN franchise and he takes the blueprint he and John Carpenter created, but weaves new themes for both Jamie and Michael within the familiar framework of the 5/4 theme timing.”

In addition to the records themselves, Mondo has produced a slipcase featuring artwork by Mike Saputo that ALL FIVE releases will sit in. The slipcase will ship free to anyone who buys the Halloween 4 and 5 bundle, selling collectively for $60.
