When I'm looking for something metal and/or creepy, I turn to director Phil Mucci, who knows how to make his own creepshow videos, but also has a brainful of good/bad stuff. And there's no better day to needle him for some picks than Halloween.
Phil Mucci: If you’re like me, you’re probably sick of the same old list of classic horror music videos trotted out every year, where Micheal Jackson’s Thriller comes in at #1, followed by half a dozen Aphex Twin videos and Ozzy’s Bark at the Moon. For my own list, I decided to pick some of my favorite monster music videos from the last 10 years (sorry, MJ). So if you’re into demonic nuns, over-sexed aliens, shape- shifting parasites, lesbian vampires, and surfing skeletons, this is the list for you. Happy Halloween!
