Most know John Carpenter for his work directing films like Halloween, The Fog, Christine, The ThingThey Live, and Big Trouble in Little China. Just to name a few. Most of his films have become cult classics. I know I like to say the line from They Live about bubble gum often. But what some my not know is that he's an accomplished musician as well. He's composed or co-composed most of the music for his films. The most famous and recognizable is the main theme to Halloween.
