AllMusic Review by

Following Sacred Bones' release of two volumes of John Carpenter's Lost Themes -- the legendary horror director/composer's first non-soundtrack recordings -- the label issued two 12" singles containing four of his most well-known theme tunes from the early days of his career. This one includes "Halloween," with its distinctive, instantly memorable piano melody, and the slower, more grandiose "Escape from New York." The songs remain as chilling as they've ever been, and the single is effective if you don't have time to sit through an entire movie and are just in the mood for a quick fix.
