Halloween: The Season of Howarth in Boston

November 1, 2021

Fangoria: Composer Alan Howarth Discusses Legendary Scores Ahead of Coolidge Horrorthon (Link to Interview)

Last weekend, Alan Howarth’s legend combined with a local Boston legend, the Coolidge Corner Theatre’s annual Halloween Horror Marathon (twelve hours of horror movies from 12 AM to 12 PM), curated by Program Manager and Director of Special Programming Mark Anastasio. In its twentieth year, the Horror Marathon honors Howarth’s work, kicking things off with Howarth himself in attendance, performing his scores ahead of the night’s commencing screening – HALLOWEEN III: SEASON OF THE WITCH. The Marathon was a one-of-a-kind event made that much more memorable in 2021 by Howarth’s participation.

Fangoria took the opportunity to speak with Howarth about the excitement that surrounds this beloved spooky celebration, and the long, strange trip his career has taken him on from his earliest days opening for bands like Cream, working with Weather Report, and walking into a job on STAR TREK: THE MOTION PICTURE before his first encounter with John Carpenter.
