Idolator Halloween: The 12 Most Murderous Music Videos In Pop History

1f1a46eb9db58ca2b76b05ae4b216837 Idolator Halloween: The 12 Most Murderous Music Videos In Pop History

Gruesome movies like A Nightmare On Elm Street, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, The Hills Have Eyes and Scream have gone down as some of the most classic horror films in movie history. In the Pop world, artists have taken a page out of the genre’s book and created equally wicked music videos. Whether it’s taking revenge out on a former lover or killing people just for fun, the music industry has had its fair share of horrifying visuals.

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.
