John Carpenter announces Halloween Expanded Edition

    Michael Myers won’t return to theaters until next October for Halloween Kills. However, John Carpenter has plenty of tricks and treats for you this season. The Master of Horror has just announced an expanded edition of his score to last year’s blockbuster reboot.

    Featuring 28 additional minutes of music from the film, a press release insists this new edition offers “a more complete, immersive listening experience” by adding a total of 24 cues that are spread across two more sides of vinyl on the deluxe double LP version.

    In addition to brand new artwork, which you can preview below, the vinyl itself will be released in a litany of iterations. We’ve gone ahead and listed them all for you below. Personally, we’re partial to the Bull Moose exclusive ourselves, but hey, we like spooky.

    — Red & Yellow Flicker (Vinyl Me Please Exclusive)  – 500 copies
    — Neon Orange (F.Y.E. Exclusive) – 500 copies
    — Pool of Blood (Bull Moose Exclusive) – 400 copies
