Halloween rocks as writer/director Rob Zombie unleashes his terrifying remake of the classic film "Halloween". "Halloween: Original Motion Picture Soundtrack" (Hip-O/UMe), released August 21, 2007, precedes the premiere of the film on more than 2,000 screens on August 31.

"Halloween" is a trick-or-treat goodie bag of audio clips from the film and '70s arena rock that turns sinister when heard in the film. From NAZARETH's "Love Hurts" (Top 10, 1976) and PETER FRAMPTON's "Baby I Love Your Way" (Top 20, 1975) to IGGY POP's live version of "1969" (1969), ALICE COOPER's "Only Women Bleed" (Top 20, 1975), RUSH's "Tom Sawyer" (1981) and BLUE ÖYSTER CULT's "(Don't Fear) The Reaper" (Top 20, 1976), Zombie mixes the expected with the surprising, just as he does with the film itself. Also included is composer Tyler Bates' ("Dawn Of The Dead", "The Devil's Rejects", "Slither", "300") remake of John Carpenter's iconic "Halloween", now titled "Halloween 2007".

Rob Zombie, who previously wrote and directed "The Devil's Rejects" (2000) and "House Of 1000 Corpses" (2004), offers an entirely new take on the highly successful series of "Halloween" films that began in 1978. Zombie turns back time to uncover the making of a pathologically disturbed, even cursed, child named Michael Myers.

Also heard in the film and on the soundtrack are "Let It Ride" (Top 30, 1974) from BACHMAN TURNER OVERDRIVE, "God Of Thunder" (1976) from KISS, MISFITS' 1982 "Halloween II" (which was not connected with the film), a new version of "Mr. Sandman" recorded by Nan Vernon and produced by Tyler Bates, as well as the Bates-composed "The Shape Stalks Laurie".
