John Carpenter's Halloween

Mondo does more than just posters. In addition to making cool art and shirts, Mondo Tees also makes and sells vinyl LP soundtracks for cult classic movies with a great soundtrack. In the past they've made vinyl pressings for The Deadly Spawn, Poltergeist, this year's Maniac remake and most of Studio Ghibli's films. Up next is John Carpenter's Halloween, an already iconic soundtrack that gets the ultimate release with a package that includes two LPs with stunning art by Phantom City Creative. The soundtrack includes all 28 tracks from the original 1978 John Carpenter horror classic. If you're a big Carpenter fan, this is a must buy.

Here are a few photos of the new Halloween soundtrack cover/case and the actual vinyl, as debuted by GQ:

If you need background music, here's the infamous "Halloween" theme that has become part of pop culture:

This new vinyl release of John Carpenter's Halloween soundtrack/score will be sold on October 31st at a random time. The announcement will be made on @MondoNews, where they'll also post any updates before then. Past vinyl pressings go for around $25 - 30, so expect the price for this to be similar. Halloween's original motion-picture soundtrack by John Carpenter comes in a 2x LP in a Deluxe Gatefold packaging with artwork by Phantom City Creative. The 45RPM vinyl pressings are made from 180 Gram black vinyl, "with randomly inserted orange vinyl." In addition to being the first time the full soundtrack is available on vinyl, GQ says this "will be the most comprehensive vinyl release of Halloween ever." Yep this is a collector's item.
