Trent Reznor covers John Carpenter’s Halloween theme

Fitting for a Friday the 13th before Halloween…

Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross have covered John Carpenter’s theme to his iconic 1978 horror film Halloween.

This pairing is only natural following Reznor’s spooky appearance with “The Nine Inch Nails” on Twin Peaks earlier this year. Both David Lynch and John Carpenter have put out their soundtracks, scores, and solo work on Sacred Bones Records, for which Carpenter is currently releasing Anthology: Movie Themes 1974-1998, an album of newly-recorded versions of his movie themes.

Reznor posted to the Nine Inch Nails Facebook page around 12am EST:

“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,” he writes. “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.”
