We are just a week away from the new Halloween film and, short of watching the movie, we have seen about all that we are going to see leading up to its theatrical release. However, this still gives us plenty of time to take a look behind the scenes and learn more about the work that has gone into the new film, especially with respect to the music as scored by the legendary John Carpenter.

The official Facebook page for the film just released a new promo featuring director David Gordon Green, Master of Horror John Carpenter, co-writer and executive producer Danny McBride, and musicians Daniel Davies and Cody Carpenter. They discuss the sound of Halloween, the new film's score, and a little bit of insight into the process of creating the music. You can check out the video below as you get yourself ready to get the shit scared out of you. John Carpenter guarantees it.

Halloween sees Jamie Lee Curtis return to her iconic role as Laurie Strode, who comes to her final confrontation with Michael Myers, the masked figure who has haunted her since she narrowly escaped his killing spree on Halloween night four decades ago. The film also stars Judy Green (Ant-Man, Jurassic World), Andi Matichak (Replicate, Orange is the New Black), Will Patton (Armageddon), and Virginia Gardner (Runaways), with Nick Castle (Escape From New York) returning as Michael Myers.

The film is directed by David Gordon Green and will release on October 19th.
