John Carpenter Plays the ‘Halloween’ Theme With Nintendo Labo
Master of Horror and music maestro, John Carpenter’s lineup of film scores are as prolific as his films; if not more by a tad. In fact, over the past decade, Carpenter has totally turned to music as his primary artistic outlet. He has toured with son, Cody Carpenter and has released a few great albums. While all that is amazing and all… nothing will compare to John Carpenter playing on Nintendo Labo.
Of course, I jest a bit. But, John Carpenter does intro the video by saying “this is the most important musical moment of my life.” Of course, he is also joking… just a bit.
The Nintendo Labo is that fun little cardboard device that Nintendo dropped a few years back. The musical results capable on one of these little guys isn’t the height of music ability. But, it was a fun little toy.
Carpenter takes the Labo to the next level by playing the theme from Halloween. What better time to bring back this IGN video than for the slow walk-of-shame out of the month of October? I thought now was a good time.
Hearing classic grumpy Carpenter-clacking away on these keys trying to figure it out and getting frustrated is the best. It’s only outdone by Carpenter becoming very frustrated and turning on Nintendo and Labo in the final moments to great effect.
It’s totally worth a watch if you haven’t seen it yet.
Halloween Ends arrives in theaters Oct. 14, 2022.
Watch ‘Conjuring’ Star Vera Farmiga Nail Slipknot’s Demon Voice in ‘Duality’ Cover
Vera Farmiga, who has starred in three Conjuring movies, has a good idea of how a demon should sound. Recently, she sang Slipknot’s Duality at a Rock Academy show in Kingston, New York. She impressively matched Corey Taylor growl for growl.
Prior to singing Duality, Farmiga told the audience, “I’ll tell you one thing: This music program is one thing we can’t get enough of. We really do have the time of our lives.”
Watch the cover below – she starts singing a little after the 1 minute mark.
During the performance of Duality, Renn Hawkey (her husband) played the keyboards. Later in the show, the couple switched roles, with Farmiga playing the keyboards as Hawkey sang The Killing Moon by Echo & The Bunnymen.
Farmiga posted videos of both the Slipknot and Echo & The Bunnymen covers on her Instagram page. She also praised the Rock Academy, saying, “Best. Music. School. On. The. Planet. Enroll your kids now. And why let them have all the fun?! Enroll yourselves! Come learn. Come grow. Come play. Come have so much fun.”
Ghostface Stars in Scream VI’s ‘Still Alive’ Music Video
Scream VI is right around the corner and in the latest music video Demi Lovato takes on Ghostface. It isn’t what we were expecting to see from the soundtrack but Still Alive is still a nice addition the Scream VI soundtrack.
It does make me miss the old Scream soundtracks. The soundtracks for Scream 2 and Scream 3 were really great and full of alternative rock picks. Nowadays, soundtracks are sadly devoid of those kinds of picks.
The film stars Melissa Barrera, Jasmin Savoy Brown, Mason Gooding, Jenna Ortega, Courteney Cox, Dermot Mulroney, Samara Weaving, Tony Revolori, Jack Champion, Liana Liberato, Devyn Nekoda, Josh Segarra, and Henry Czerny.
The synopsis for Scream VI goes like this:
Four survivors of the original Ghostface killings attempt to leave Woodsboro behind for a fresh start.
‘Joker: Folie à Deux’ Shares First Image of Lady Gaga With Joaquin Phoenix
The first image of the sequel to Joker shares a first look at its two stars. Both Lady Gaga and Joaquin Phoenix are featured in the first lovely image from Todd Phillips’ Joker: Folie à Deux.
The term Folie à Deux means shared “shared delusional disorder”. We are sure that this will be something thoroughly explored in the sequel between these two.
The synopsis for Joker went like this:
Forever alone in a crowd, failed comedian Arthur Fleck seeks connection as he walks the streets of Gotham City. Arthur wears two masks — the one he paints for his day job as a clown, and the guise he projects in a futile attempt to feel like he’s part of the world around him. Isolated, bullied and disregarded by society, Fleck begins a slow descent into madness as he transforms into the criminal mastermind known as the Joker.
