Shudder Receives an All-New Theme and Moniker Courtesy of John Carpenter

Official Animated Logo with New John Carpenter Score To Debut on Shudder During Free All-Day HALLOWEEN-on-Halloween Marathon

Legendary horror director and composer John Carpenter has created a new official musical theme for on-demand horror service Shudder. The new theme will make its Shudder debut on Oct. 31, 2018, during an 24-hour streaming marathon of Carpenter’s hit 1978 film Halloween. The marathon will be available for free on Shudder TV’s live stream at

Carpenter created both a two-minute version of the theme, appropriately titled “Shudder,” and a five-second version that will serve as the network’s official audio ID, or “moniker.” The moniker will accompany the Shudder logo animation that runs in front of movies and TV series. During the October 31 Halloween marathon, the new Carpenter-scored ID will run between airings of the film. Check out both the two minute and five second versions of the theme below.
