Ranking the Halloween Scores from Worst to Best [Halloweenies Podcast]

To borrow from Thunderclap Newman, there is something in the air. No, not pumpkin spice lattes. Not those Yankee Candles your mother bought. No,it’s the cozy and creepy tones of John Carpenter‘s signature Halloween score. Hell, if you put your ear to the ground, you might even hear the pulsing, 5/4 beat that gets our blood pumping and the crowd roaring.

This week marks the return of Michael Myers to Haddonfield with Halloween Ends, and your Halloweenies are celebrating by unlocking an episode from their Patreon vault. Recorded in October 2021, the two-hour conversation below finds the gang heading to WKNB, where they rank every single score in the Halloween franchise.

Joining them is horror score scholar J. Blake Fichera, author of the must-own Scored to Death and Scored to Death 2 volumes. Together, they round robin their respective rankings — from 1978’s Halloween all the way to 2021’s Halloween Kills — the likes of which leads to a definitive list that die-hard fans of the franchise should respect for eternity.

We kid. We kid.
