“I clearly remember my friends and I at 13 years old conning our parents into letting us see Halloween when it came out in 1978″ says Reznor. “We left the theatre 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.”

Reznor & Ross’ recorded their homage to one of horror’s greatest anthems from scratch and it got the seal of approval from the man himself. John Carpenter reacted to their recording saying: “Moody and dark, Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross’ version of HALLOWEEN does amazing justice to the original. I’m impressed.”

Listen to “Halloween (Trent Reznor & Atticus Ross version)” here:

‘Anthology…’ will be celebrated with an album playback in absolute darkness in London this October 31st, courtesy of Pitchblack Playback. Details can be found here.
