1. Kim Petras - "Tell Me It's a Nightmare"
Kim Petras should be a superstar at this point. Her brand new Halloween-themed mixtape showcases her gift for memorable hooks and lyrics. "Tell Me It's a Nightmare" features a shower of rain and cracks of thunder, setting the stage for a night of sheer terror. "Tell me how we got here," she sings.
Slay Scale: Obsession-Worthy
2. Kyle Motsinger - "Dark Shadows"
New York City performer Kyle Motsinger pays tribute to the iconic late-60s vampire-centric soap opera, Dark Shadows. He imbues gothic imagery with modern desire. "Barnabas, I'm yours forever," he sings, vowing commitment to the mesmerizing vampire. "I'm the one who sets you free."
Slay Scale: Shook
3. Wallows - "Drunk on Halloween"
Less spooky and more emotional, Wallows weeps over a breakup with "Drunk on Halloween." They sing, "On that Halloween you told me / You weren't drinkin', I believed you / Now the only time I have's to / Sit and wonder if you're thinkin' / About the fun you've had with someone else / I know the truth is wasted on you." It's a soft-rock tearjerker and follows the band's debut EP, Spring, released earlier this year.
Slay Scale: Super Chill

The classic He-Man meme video stands the test of time as an iconic example of queer-coded art.
In December of 2005, Brokeback Mountain shifted queer-coded cinema into the mainstream.
Prior to 2005, "New Queer Cinema"––a term coined by film scholar B. Ruby Rich in Sight & Sound to define the queer-themed independent film movement, which focused on rejecting heteronormativity and concentrated on LGBTQ protagonists––existed on the fringe of the film world. It's worth noting that while the movement primarily refers to the boom in independent LGBTQ films from 1992 onwards, queer cinema existed for many years prior, albeit without a proper name. But regardless of nomenclature, New Queer Cinema was typically designated for niche audiences, relegated to arthouse showings at best.
There's a big problem with the trailer for Morbius, Sony's upcoming Marvel outing that is definitely not part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe even though it has Michael Keaton reprising his role as Vulture (please let us keep our license, Disney!).
See if you can spot it.
MORBIUS - Teaser Trailer www.youtube.com
If you answered, "Sampling Beethoven's 'Für Elise' to line up with blue-tinted action shots is the absolute lowest effort, brain-dead attempt to signify 'gothic vampire movie' in the entire history of movie trailers," you're correct, but that's still not the biggest problem with Morbius. No, the biggest problem is that Morbius is played by Jared Leto.
