Music Videos To Get You In The Halloween Mood, Part 3: The Creepy And The Atmospheric
Band Photo: Marilyn Manson (?)
That most metal of holidays is almost upon us again, but you may want something more than candy corn and blood colored cocktails to get you in the Halloween spirit this weekend. Earlier this month we covered the most over the top horror themed clips as well as videos that focus on the demonic and the diabolic, but that still leaves a good deal of ground to cover. For today’s edition of metal videos to get you in the Halloween mood we’ll take a look at the creepy, the atmospheric, and the disturbing.
Marilyn Manson – “This is Halloween”
While his metal cred is definitely questionable, Marilyn Manson does have the Halloween image down pat. Check out the quintessential “This is Halloween” clip below, set to scenes from Tim Burton’s “The Nightmare Before Christmas.”
Ill Nino – “How Can I Live”
Used on the “Freddy Vs. Jason” soundtrack, “How Can I Live” follows the basic horror movie format of a girl being chased down the street, and fits in perfectly with the Halloween vibe.
Necrophagia – “Embalmed Yet I Breathe”
Talk about atmosphere! This one almost crosses the line into cheesy, but manages to stay just over on the creepy and atmospheric side.
Aborted – “The Chondrin Enigma”
Aborted's properly disgusting video takes a while to get going, but boy when it gets going things become royally messed up. The ending is truly disturbing, and includes a contraption worthy of a “Saw” or “Hostel” flick.
Meshuggah – “Bleed”
Kind of like a bad drug trip put to film, “Bleed” is more about style than substance and doesn’t seem to follow a standard narrative much, but it definitely has the imagery and atmosphere to match any horror movie.
Dir En Grey – “Obscure”
If you haven’t seen this video before, prepare to watch everything good in the world gone horribly wrong. A phrase like “nightmare porn” might do this one justice.
Aphex Twin - "Rubber Johnny"
As a bonus, here's a track that isn't actually metal in any way, but it's still really creepy, and I recommend watching with the lights on.
