A Hella Creepy Mix That Spotlights the Madness of John Carpenter

Just in time for Hallo—oh, wait. Um, well, better late than never, here’s a mix of intensely harrowing music by horror/sci-fi-flick auteur John Carpenter, who wrote his own scores, often in tandem with the superb library-music composer Alan Howarth. With impeccable timing, the Death Waltz label reissued in mid October the soundtracks to Halloween II and Halloween III that Carpenter created along with Howarth; their score for They Live is due out on Death Waltz in December. Think of this mix as getting an early jump on Halloween 2013. Yeah.

cut @ 2:38 is from The Fog and it's totally screaming for some horror hip hop beats...

a band called Antler Spastic sampled it once, but it really needs a good home in horrorcore rap
