Review Text John Carpenter didn't direct the 2018 installment of the Halloween series (previously described by its makers as a "recalibration" rather than a reboot), but he did provide the music for the film. As the film stays true to the 1978 original, even casting Nick Castle as Michael Myers for the first time in four decades, the soundtrack is in the same spirit of the original, only performed with Carpenter's touring and recording partners (his son Cody Carpenter and Daniel Davies), and with a much bigger budget. The iconic Halloween theme pops up in several iterations, and in much higher definition than in the original. Aside from that, there are plenty of sharp, effective scare sequences like "Michael Kills Again" and "Ray's Goodbye." While familiar-sounding, the soundtrack brings something new to the table instead of being a pointless retread, and in general, it just sounds amazing. Definitely worthwhile for any Carpenter or Halloween fans. ~ Paul Simpson
