From acclaimed musician and filmmaker Rob Zombie (THE DEVIL'S REJECTS, HOUSE OF 1000 CORPSES) comes an entirely new take on the highly successful and terrifying Halloween legacy that began in 1978. While revealing a new chapter in the established Michael Myers saga, the film will surprise both classic and modern horror fans with a departure from prior films in the Halloween franchise. Audiences should brace themselves for unprecedented fear as Zombie turns back time to uncover the making of a pathologically disturbed, even cursed child named Michael Myers. Written and directed by Rob Zombie, The Weinstein Company opens Halloween on over 2000 screens on August 31st.
The largely unsurprising soundtrack to Rob Zombie's "re-imagining" of John Carpenter's genre-defining Halloween rests on two major building blocks: snippets of dialogue from the new movie and classic 1970s rock track. Nothing surprising among the latter, which includes arena-rock classics such as Blue Oyster Cults "Don't Fear the Reaper, " Alice Cooper's "Only Women Bleed," and Kiss's "God of Thunder." The songs still sound great, of course; whether you need to hear them yet again is another matter. Too bad there aren't more left-field picks like the Misfits' "Halloween II" and Nan Vernon's new sweet/spooky cover of "Mr. Sandman." Good mood-setting interstitials are provided by brief lines delivered by the film's stars, such as Malcolm McDowell (in the Donald Pleasance role) and Scout Taylor-Compton (in the Jamie Lee Curtis role). There are only two cues from Tyler Bates' score. One is an update of the original movie's famously minimalist theme (penned by Carpenter himself); the other, "The Shape Stalks Laurie," is understated but very efficient, at times using dense sonic textures that verge on industrial. --Elisabeth Vincentelli

I bought this disc alongside the forthcoming Rob Zombie Live CD (you might have twigged before that I'm a fan), and have to say that it represents excellent value for money in terms of price (not got the live CD yet, it's not out until late October).
In the meantime, the Halloween soundtrack will whet my appetite as I eagerly await being able to see the movie.
However, most, if not all of the Rock songs in the film are here. In that regard, it is a strong Sound Track. "Don't Fear the Reaper" (which was in the 1978 film, when Annie and Laurie are driving to their baby-sitting gigs.)is here, and it's neat to see it in the new film, and on the Sound Track.
Rob Zombie has also included many bits of dialogue from the film. Be WARNED!!! Much of this is rated 'R'!!!!!!!!!!
But is good to hear Dr. Loomis and Laurie Strode speak lines that are almost word for word from the 1978 film.
I could have done without the cussing, but I did enjoy this CD.
