The Six Most Unintentionally Creepy Music Videos

It would be too simple -- cliché even -- to put up yet another Halloween blog list replete with death-metal videos and their rampant devil horns or any goth ones with their ghostly pallor abounding. What really tickles our pickle is the unintentional spook -- the spine-tingling affright that comes out of nowhere. An unsettling, unhinged affection that unnerves in the ever so subtle of ways.

So instead of giving you yet another ode to the horrors of Michael Jackson's "Thriller" or Aphex Twin's "Come to Daddy," there are plenty of music videos that are terrifying by accident. Somehow, whether it be in a slightly demented stare or simply an earnest attempt at artistic vision, these still freak us out as much as a knife-wielding Michael Myers did in Halloween.

Here is a list of the top six most unintentionally spooky videos on the planet.
