It’s a rarity that we see a Friday the 13th pop up in October. And this year, we get an extra punch to our regular Halloween festivities! Friday the 13th is here!
While most of these are referencing back to Jason Voorhees, let’s not forget that Halloween belongs to the babysitter stalker himself, Michael Meyers. As an added treat to our Friday the 13th celebrations, Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross of Nine Inch Nails fame just released a cover of John Carpenter’s iconic theme to Halloween!
Stream a taste of Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross’ cover of John Carpenter’s iconic score to Halloween, below.
Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross, better known as the duo that is Nine Inch Nails, are no strangers to the world of film scores. Both are known for their award winning score for The Social Network for Best Original Score at the 2011 Golden Globes.
