Welcome to October!
Since this is the first post of the first day of Horrorthon, it just seemed appropriate to select the video of Big Data’s Monster as music video of the day. This wonderfully paranoid video will inspire you to put Alexa back in the box. Or, at the very least, to consider doing it. I mean, could you really live without her? Anyway, this video has a nice sort of Wes Craven/John Carpenter feel to it. Those glowing red eyes are haunting.
It’s a well acted video too and Big Data was kind enough to list the full cast and crew on YouTube. (More artists should do this.) Here they are:

As for the rest of October, I can’t guarantee that every music video that we’re going to share this month is going to have a horror theme. To be honest, there aren’t that many good horror-themed music videos out there and we already featured the majority of them over the past two Octobers. I mean, there’s only so many times that we can analyze Number of the Beast. Still, we’ll be keeping our eyes open for any good videos we may have missed and, as we do every October, we’ll do our best to keep things properly spooky here at the TSL Bunker!
Enjoy October and get ready for the greatest Horrorthon ever!
