As Halloween approaches, take a look back at some of the most killer (pun-intended) videos in music history below!
12. “What Goes Around…Comes Around” - Justin Timberlake (2006)
Kicking off this countdown is the least gory music video on the list — Justin Timberlake‘s “What Goes Around…Comes Around,” off his 2006 sophomore album FutureSex/LoveSounds. The plot — written by Nick Cassavetes of The Notebook fame — centers on a wild girl (played by Scarlett Johansson) who cheats on JT with his best friend. In the video, JT doesn’t get his hands dirty. Instead he lets karma do all his murderous work. Sure, the ex-girlfriend dies in a savage car crash — but the scene is more emotional than vengeful. It’s pretty tame when putting it in a horror film-type of retrospect.
11. “Your Body” - Christina Aguilera (2012)
With its cotton candy-colored sheen and incredibly campy moments (there’s an insane amount of hot pink glitter), Christina Aguilera‘s “Your Body” looks like a typical pop music video. But throughout the visual comes several unexpected twists where the singer seduces & kills three innocent men by setting one’s car ablaze, bludgeons another to death and bashes a victim’s brains in with a baseball bat — taking “succubus” to a whole new level. The plot is very tongue-in-cheek, which makes the killings seem playful, and thus even more evil.
