Official Spooky Scale Based On Iconic Music Videos
‘Tis the season! With Halloween just a day away, you need to stay aware of any potential scares. Use this scale of spookiness to dance away any ghosts or general ghouls trying to creep on your presence.
Low Spooky: “Bad Romance” – Lady Gaga
While it starts a little dark and spooky, the lights get turned on less than halfway through to show off the flashy performance. This music video equates to the fear one would have if there was no imminent danger of a skeleton nearby: a low register on the spook scale.
Medium Spooky: “After the Afterparty” – Charli XCX (ft. Lil Yachty)
Complete with bubblegum and soda pop zombies eating each other, this music video will definitely register on the spook scales but is still safe for the fainter of heart – as if there was only a slight possibility of a skeleton in your vicinity.
Spooky: “Thriller” – Michael Jackson
The original spooky zombie dance sequence is sure to spook many, as well as help get you into the Halloween spirit. As for a rating with regard to skeletons, this would equate to the fear of a high possibility of a skeleton being nearby.
High Spooky: “I Fink You Freeky” – Die Antwoord
If unsettling images set to South African rave music don’t spook you like a skeleton right behind you, then you’re beyond brave, but for the rest of us: don’t watch this alone at night.
Extreme Spooky: “Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This)” – Marilyn Manson
If Marilyn Manson’s depraved, distorted music video of this Eurythmics cover didn’t spook you out of your skin, then you could probably handle a skeleton being so close it is basically inside of your body right now!
