Sacred Bones Records has unveiled the music video for John Carpenter's "Night", a track from his Lost Themes record that's now available. Also featured in our latest round-up is Detroit Zombie Apocalypse III, this weekend's zombie-themed fundraiser for The Walking Hope cancer charity, as well as details on Diamond Select Toys' interactive appearances at Chicago's C2E2 later this month.

John Carpenter Music Video: It followed Laurie Strode as she was hunted by Michael Myers, rode with Christine as the flaming 1958 Plymouth Fury mercilessly pursued Buddy Repperton down a dark stretch of asphalt, and accompanied Jack Burton and his pals on their rescue mission in Lo Pan's lair. John Carpenter’s music could be listed as a cast member in his films, as they are like another character, superbly complimenting the dialogue and actions of the main players.

The nine tracks on Carpenter's upcoming Lost Themes record, however, don't come from iconic films, but they will likely have listeners watching movies of their imagination's own devising. From the creative minds of John Carpenter, his son, Cody Carpenter, and Daniel Davies, the Lost Themes album is now available from Sacred Bones Records.

Starring John Carpenter, the music video for "Night" was created by Gavin Hignight and Ben Verhulst:
