Good movie, very excellent, scary soundtrack.
Amazon Customer
Instead, the film features the signature Carpenter sound on a number of excellent new cues, including the opening theme and the ensuing chase sequence.

It's too bad so many people don't like the movie.

An excellent re-release of the Carpenter-Howarth score to Halloween III: Season of the Witch to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the film.

Not being a Michael Myers film, the Halloween theme does not appear. Instead, the film features the signature Carpenter sound on a number of excellent new cues, including the opening theme and the ensuing chase sequence. Once again, it's all keyboard, and very reminiscent of his scores from the same period (Escape From New York, Christine, etc). Spare and eerie, it holds up well. As scores go, this is as good as EfNY, and with the unreleased tracks it's even better. You're pretty much getting an extra album here, with 13 additional tracks clocking in at the same length, if not more. Some of the extra material contains alternate versions of the score, while others are totally unreleased tracks, all of them very welcome. The score still holds up better the film, which did have some interesting themes that are relevant today, even if Tommy Lee Wallace couldn't quite hold it together like Carpenter (or Rick Rosenthal). Still, the music will evoke the photography of Dean Cundey, who gave the film the same look as the first two.

Limited to 1000 copies, which isn't much even for a re-release of H III's score, this is well worth it for Carpenter fans, and fans of the demented Silver Shamrock jingle. If you don the right mask and play the Silver Shamrock Montage track enough, your head will explode.

This review is of the LIMITED EDITION Halloween III - Season Of The Witch soundtrack that has a total of 25 tracks. The ORIGINAL release of this soundtrack has 12 songs.

The soundtrack to Halloween III is easily John Carpenter's best work. He teamed up with Alan Howarth to make this eerie atmospheric soundtrack that doesn't keep repeating itself like the Halloween and Halloween II soundtracks. Each track has its own identity and the tracks connect well with each other. A lot of keyboards and synthesizers are used. There are 13 additional tracks included on this album (and 25 altogether), whereas the original release has a total of 12 tracks. Personal favorites of mine are The Rock, Hello Grandma, Halloween Montage, Goodbye Ellie, Robots At The Factory, Drive To Santa Mira, Hey Boom, The Factory, I Do Love A Good Joke, and Local Boy, No Way. Some of the extra tracks are repeats of tracks that appeared on the original release, only they're slightly different musically and named differently. They're basically alternate unused versions, but still very good. The remaining extra tracks are tracks that never appeared on the original release, yet I feel should have been included on the original release because they are music tracks that were applied to scenes in the movie.

It's too bad so many people don't like the movie. People need to give the movie a chance, because it's an extremely underrated movie, even with the silly plot and mistakes in the movie. Once you watch it a few times, it might start to grow on you. People need to forget about Michael Myers. John Carpenter and Debra Hill killed him off in Halloween II, remember? They did this so they could start a whole new Halloween-themed franchise with a new movie every year that is unrelated to the previous.

While the movie itself was eh, the soundtrack was fantastic. John Carpenter and Alan Howarth were a great team and an inspiration for the music I make today!

Even if you don't like this movie (I love the movie), you'll like the soundtrack!
It has nice soundscapes and eerie tracks and it reminds you of how the eighties synth-soundtracks really could create a great atmosphere.(also check the Nightmare On Elmstreet music)
Oh yeah, it's not overdone, it's minimal wich I also like.

Haloween 3 -was not related to any of the other Movies and soundtrack -this is what I loved about this soundtrack was John Carpender was the major force behind it along with Alan Howarth . Want to talk about pounding and creepy music -this cd says it all .This soundtrack also contains additional music not found on the original . Some of the cues -in the movie that were left out -are now included . This music is so creepy that If I were to play it on Halloween -no one would come to my house for candy -they would be so afraid to come to the door . I recomend this soundtrack because it does support the movie very well -campy movie but a great soundtrack .Their are soundtracks I wait for to come out -this was one and remastered really does it justice.

I am a huge fan of this score. I might be the biggest fan of it actually. I had the downloaded version from iTunes, and I thought it would be a great idea to own the physical disc, so I would have it forever. I took the plunge and ordered it from Amazon. I got the disc and I was really angry. It is a burned copy. I can understand Amazon not wanting to stock every disc, but I feel I was duped. Even the booklet was printed with a cheap printer, you can see lines in the art, and there is nothing but the front of the book, no liner notes, no pictures no nothing. I could have burned the disc MYSELF. I guess I will have to read every single line on the description, to make sure that what I order is what I want. I am sad it's not a real pressed disc, the score deserves to be preserved fro all times.
