John Carpenter'sHalloween is one of the finest horror flicks ever made, and it will no doubt become required viewing over the next few weeks.
Carpenter has given the song his blessing, calling it "moody and dark" and praising Ross and Reznor for doing "amazing justice to the original".
The Nine Inch Nails singer, along with collaborator Ross, stayed faithful to Carpenter's theme, adding only atmosphere and gloom to the original melody.
I clearly remember my friends and I at thirteen years old conning our parents into letting us see Halloween when it came out in 1978.
Reznor and Finch recorded their version of the track in celebration of a collection of a new John Carpenter album entitled Anthology: Movie Themes 1974-1998, which includes 13 newly-recorded versions of his movie themes realised by Carpenter, his son Cody and godson Daniel Davies.
Halloween wouldn't be any less scary with a score by Nine Inch Nails-it'd just be a little bit louder.
The cover is part of a new compilation of re-recorded themes from John Carpenter's films, titled "Anthology: Movie Themes 1974-1998", released on October 20th. Carpenter and his band also cover Ennio Morricone's bleak, minimalist theme for The Thing.
