Five Awesomely Creepy Music Videos To Play On Loop At Your Halloween Party


By Zachary Swickey

It’s almost that special time of year again, when girls from all around get the opportunity to eroticize a vast array of professions and every pet owner gets a chance to make their dog hate them just a little bit. My top costume predictions are Ryan Gosling’s “Drive” outfit with the badass cream-colored satin jacket, the inappropriate costume of the year will likely be a bloody Muammar Gaddafi, while the Steve Jobs get-up – black turtleneck and some blue jeans – will become the go-to outfit for all nerds (and people wanting a cheap costume) to pay tribute to the fallen visionary.

Everyone loves dressing up and attempting to be as witty as possible with their outfit. Halloween is actually a great backdrop for a music video too with its vivid imagery and slew of monsters to choose from. It’s no wonder these videos went the creepy route with their ideas, because few holidays are as fun and ridiculously memorable as Halloween. Here are five of the freakiest vids we could find.

Michael Jackson, “Thriller”

The one that truly started it all. After the King of Pop saw “American Werewolf in London,” he rang up the film’s director, John Landis, to helm his epic 14-minute music video for “Thriller,” which also boasted narration from horror legend Vincent Price. MJ’s iconic red leather jacket from the clip sold at auction earlier this year for a jaw-dropping $1.8 million. Luckily, the winner was a Texas millionaire who plans on sending the jacket on charitable tour, which makes me feel better knowing Kanye isn’t wearing it while moonwalking through his living room.

Get the rest, after the jump.

Marilyn Manson, “Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This)”

We all look at Manson’s take on the Eurythmic’s “Sweet Dreams” now as one of the quintessential covers and simply describing its accompanying video does not do it justice. Manson donning a wedding outfit, wandering the street in a tutu or riding a muddy pig may sound just plain weird rather than scary, but like the song itself, the sh*t is actually quite creepy (double-dog dare you to listen to it alone in the dark). The track gave Manson his first MTV Video Music Award nomination for Best Rock Video.
