Original Soundtrack by John Carpenter and Alan Howarth

The 25th Anniversary Collector’s Edition of HALLOWEEN III: SEASON OF THE WITCH. The soundtrack features music composed & performed by John Carpenter (HALLOWEEN, ESCAPE FROM NEW YORK) and Alan Howarth (THE LOST EMPIRE, HEADLESS) for the 1982 horror film ghost-written by Nigel Kneale (QUATERMASS series) and directed by Tommy Lee Wallace (FRIGHT NIGHT PART II, THE NEW TWILIGHT ZONE).

After the enormous and unparalled box office success of the first two HALLOWEEN films, the producers chose to take the franchise in a new direction, by telling new stories that would have nothing to do with Michael Meyers but would be linked together by a common thread. The events of the stories would take place during Halloween. For the second sequel in the HALLOWEEN franchise, they chose to tell the story of Silver Shamrock, a company known for its unique Halloween masks, run by the mysterious Conal Cochran (Dan O’Herlihy, THE LAST STARFIGHTER), and his insidious Manchurian-like plan to kill millions of innocent people around the world using a combination of their special masks and a specific radio signal broadcast at a particular time, to turn children into unstoppable assassins. Standing in the way is Doctor Daniel Challis (Tom Atkins, THE FOG, NIGHT OF THE CREEPS), a psychiatrist who accidentally stumbles onto the plot. Considered a creative mis-step in the evolution of the HALLOWEEN series, the film has developed a following over the years and at least one creative decision paid off in the long run. The musical duties for HALLOWEEN III: SEASON OF THE WITCH were handled by series creator John Carpenter and Alan Howarth.

The original album for HALLOWEEN III was released by Varese Sarabande Records and, to this day, despite having been out of print for several years, fetches high prices in the collector’s market. AHI Records, to be distributed by BUYSOUNDTRAX Records, presents a new 25th Anniversary Collector’s Edition release of HALLOWEEN III: SEASON OF THE WITCH, which includes the contents of the original album release, newly remastered, along with thirteen tracks of previously unreleased music as bonus tracks, nearly an hour of music. The booklet contains notes written by the composer himself. This is a limited edition release of 1000 units. This release is dedicated to legendary Hollywood film producer Joseph Wolf
