Posted in film, halloween, horror, macabre, monsters, music, music video, undead, vintage with tags , , , , , , , , on October 17, 2013 by shewalkssoftly

Unofficial music video for “The Darlings of Lumberland” by They Might Be Giants, from their 16th album “Nanobots” (2013): http://www.tmbg.com (see more below).

It was created using both famous and obscure silent horror films found on Archive.org, and photos from the vintage photo site Retronaut.

What does it say about me that I have pretty much all of these images on my hard drive and have seen all of these films?
