Maybe the single coolest aspect of the new Halloween is the score, composed by John Carpenter, Cody Carpenter and Daniel Davies. That Carpenter has returned to the world of film scoring is quite literally the best possible music to our ears, and Carpenter’s musical resurgence continues with the reveal that he has whipped up a new theme for Shudder!
Via EW, the horror streaming service debuted the track today, announcing that a 5-second version of it will play as part of the Shudder logo that precedes their original movies.
“We wanted to create a one-of-a-kind audio identity for Shudder and the first person we thought of was John Carpenter,” said Shudder GM Craig Engler in a statement. “We approached John and to our delight, he was enthusiastic about the idea and came up with an iconic theme that will enchant and thrill Shudder members every time they hear it.”
Carpenter’s theme will debut on Shudder, fittingly, on Halloween day, during the streaming service’s 24-hour marathon of the original Halloween. But why wait? Listen below!
