"It's time, Michael."
Halloween II (Expanded Original Motion Picture Soundtrack) - John Carpenter In Association With Alan Howarth




Excluding the suites A-F. This sequel, which should've been the last of the Michael Myers movies, was released in theaters 40 years ago today. The score is mostly Howarth tweaking the Halloween (1978) score because Carpenter wasn't available due to being busy on Escape From New York. The use of the organ gives the score a very gothic feel. Overall it rivals the original score, imo.

The Halloween franchise wasn't originally suppose to be a series of sequels centering around Michael Myers and his reign of terror on Haddonfield, IL but a horror anthology centering around the holiday i.e. Halloween III: Season Of The Witch. Carpenter originally wanted the ambiguous ending of Halloween (1978) to be the conclusion where Michael was still lurking out there somewhere. Then the next movie would've been Season Of The Witch, however, Halloween (1978) was such a box office success that Universal pictures, distributor of Halloween II, wanted a direct follow up of Halloween (1978) instead of a new tale. As far as I'm concerned Halloween II is the only sequel and the real conclusion of Michael Myers and Laurie Strode's story, the rest of the Michael Myers related sequels (including the recent David Gordon Green films) are fan fic cash grabs. It's unfortunate that Halloween III was both a critical and financial flop. Would've been interesting having an anthology of films centered around the Halloween season. Though Michael Dougherty'sTrick 'r Treat somewhat fills that void. Maybe after Halloween Ends they can go back to doing an anthology because they've already stretched this franchise thin by centering around Michael Myers.

The more people post horror scores in October, the more I -- living in a largely non-Halloween-celebrating country -- want to post the exact opposite. Like this gorgeous 2016 score by the always reliable Matti Bye.

Not everything has to be horror this month (speaking as an American)
