  • Happy Halloween, everyone! In the spirit of scaring, Arcade Fire has shared a 20-minute horror film called Festi, which takes place during their 2011 tour. As they celebrate lead singer Win Butler's birthday, the band deals with the frightening curse of the infamous 27 Club. An entire slew of celebrities make appearances, including The National, Peter Gabriel, Fleet Foxes, and Andrew Garfield. [CoS]

  • With a name like Avey Tare's Slasher Flicks, you can bet that this trio knows how to bring it when it comes to spooky themed productions. They've created a visually stunning, nine-minute monster film for their track "Catchy (Was Contagious)." It's sure to get you in the Halloween spirit. [Stereogum]

  • Flying Lotus enlisted the talents of animator David Firth for his graphic and incredibly creepy "Ready Err Not" video. Flying Lotus ends up losing his head amongst many other terrifyingly disturbing things. If you're into gruesome horror, then this video is for you. [CoS]

  • Perfume Genius, aka Mike Hadrias, made his first network TV appearance last night on "Late Show with David Letterman." He delivered a stunning performance of his hit song "Queen." Check it out. [Pitchfork]
