CORY STRAND "HALLOWEEN II: DEEP DRONE VERSION" 4CDr (AOW 146)
An alternate version or companion volume to my upcoming Occult Supremacy release ("Halloween II: A Reinterpretation," most likely coming in 2014), "Halloween II: Deep Drone Version" is exactly what the title implies: a hyper-minimalistic reinterpretation of John Carpenter and Alan Howarth's masterful score for the sequel to Carpenter's landmark slasher. Halloween II as a film was far more violent and brutal than its predecessor, forsaking all of the daytime menace and tension depicted in the first for something more visceral and bloody-minded, a veritable slaughter that left few characters alive and more or less set the standard for further characterizations of Michael Myers within the Halloween series. In creating this specific version I have sought to upend that intensity and transmute it into a sort of quiet and prolonged dread, the eye of a storm of utterly inhuman and hellish violence. May it haunt your dreams. Happy Halloween!
