Song # 25: Halloween

GirlsUnderGlass--Eurorock2002--04

Industrial-darkwave band Girls Under Glass are from Hamburg, Germany and formed in 1986. There are three members: Volker (singer), Axel (guitars), and Hauke (keyboards). There have been many covers of the Halloween movie theme, but this one really adds something new while never loosing the spookiness of the original composition.   This one comes from the album Nightmare.

There is nothing like the first Halloween; it became the template to slasher horror films and was copied to the point that it may be harder to appreciate these days.  Personally, the Rob Zombie remakes are great, though there are many who disagree.  At the very least, he never just went through the motions that so many horror sequels and remakes do and tried to really expand the ideas from the original, especially in his Halloween 2.
