Film director and composer Dante Tomaselli has just released a single from his upcoming album that pays tribute to horror great John Carpenter. The track’s titled “Elizabeth Dane.”

Carpenter fans will recognize that as the name of the ship in Carpenter’s The Fog (1980). The film sees ghost pirates exacting revenge on a small coastal town.

The track is available below via the creator’s YouTube channel.

Tomaselli tells Wicked Horror the single is from his upcoming album called Holy Terror, which will release soon.

“It’s my official homage to John Carpenter as it’s inspired by the vengeful ghost ship in The Fog,” according to Tomaselli.

Fans of Carpenter’s films and scores such as the original Halloween will recognize the inspiration for the intense, sometimes throbbing electronic instrumentals of “Elizabeth Dane.” The tune features a powerful beat and flourishes that evoke a sense of suspense, dread, and otherworldly intrusions.
