Back on October 30th & 31st of 2006, John Carpenter’s original horror classic HALLOWEEN played in select theaters across the country. Fans that caught those screenings were treated to a short featurette titled HALLOWEEN: THE SHAPE OF HORROR, which featured new interviews with HALLOWEEN alumni Nancy Loomis, PJ Soles and Charles Cyphers, as well as Rob Zombie talking for the first time since he was announced as director about what he was planning to do with his remake of HALLOWEEN. Those 2 nights were the only time fans were able to see this exclusive featurette.
Enter ICONS own Robg. I was asked to come up with a few pieces of HALLOWEEN inspired music by the projects writer/director/producer Anthony Masi. Considering Rob Zombie’s music had a bit of an “industrial” flavor to it, I opted to play around with some of the classic Carpenter themes and inject that style of music into them. Along the way, I came up with 2 completely original pieces of music as well that were just inspired by the whole process. When I was done, I had a neat little 7 song EP of HALLOWEEN inspired music that I submitted for consideration. Only a few seconds of one of the pieces made it into the final featurette and the remainder of the EP has remained unheard since.
Just for fun, I wanted to offer the 7 song HALLOWEEN: THE SHAPE OF HORROR CD EP to fellow fans.
