I know this! I'm the biggest nerd ever about this stuff. Carpenter and John Harrison ( Day of the Dead, Creepshow) primarily used a Prophet 5 rev.2. I have spent hours upon hours recreating exact patches and playing along with the soundtracks. Claudio Simonetti from Goblin played a Rhodes MK2, a Minimoog, and a Roland Jupiter 8. Fabio Frizzi played a mellotron and a Minimoog. I honestly think the Prophet 5 and Korg Polysix are both very very capable of capturing this mood perfectly. Check out Manuel De Sica too. And the band Zombi uses a Polysix, Prophet 600, and Pro One to nail the sound effortlessly
