Halloween (2018) Original Soundtrack review
Posted in Reviews, Thursday 18th October 2018
Halloween OST

For most horror fans out there 2018 has been a golden year with the genre regularly topping box-offices around the globe. But, as they say, the best is usually last and this year it's a real biggie, Halloween is back, and this time John Carpenter is attached to the project. Not only is he one of the Executive Producers but he's also composed the score alongside his son Cody and Daniel A. Davies.

Let's get things straight, I love the Halloween series of movies (yes, even the sequels) and having Carpenter connected in such a way is pure horror fan bliss and I didn't want my admiration for both to cloud my judgement but this is a classy score packed with invention, new interpretations of a class...

Julian Richards

Ahead of the World premiere screening of Reborn at FrightFest Halloween, Julian Richards discusses the torturous challenges of Daddy's Girl, why he wishes every actress was like Barbara Crampton and future plans, including directing the English language remake of Rabies.

HC: After six years away from directing, you have two films, Reborn and Daddy's Girl poised for distribution. Why these two very different films now?

JR: My previous film Shiver was completed in 2012 and it took longer for me to get back into the directing saddle because of commitments I had to my sales company Jinga Films. The company was growing quickly and needed more of my time and energy. We had grown from handling th...

We're both big fans of classic horror and we love the works of Hitchcock, Carpenter, Friedkin, and Cronenberg so in a way we had a very specific style and feel in mind before we even had the story.
