At the tail end of last year, Gregory Burkart presented you with his top 10 favorite horror inspired music videos of the year, a gory collection of horrific imagery mashed together with delightful sounds; a combination that I personally can't get enough of. Be sure to go back and check out his picks, if you missed that post or just want to re-watch some kickass videos.
Today, I've queued up ten more awesome horror-themed music videos that I think you're going to like. So instead of sitting here and talking to you any further, I invite you to turn up the volume and dig in!
Franz Ferdinand: "Evil Eye"
This here is actually the video that inspired this whole list. Released just a few days ago, Franz Ferdinand's new video "Evil Eye" is an absolute must-watch, a blood-soaked ode to those cheesy '80s shot-on-video horror flicks that we all love so much. »

The directing duo behind the underrated Carriers, Alex and David Pastor, return for yet another slice of post-apocalyptic horror with The Last Days, which sees a mysterious epidemic known as The Panic spread across the planet – essentially extreme agoraphobia, this new-found irrational fear of open spaces leads to instant death and soon the world’s population remains trapped inside buildings afraid to move. As Barcelona descends into chaos Marc embarks on a citywide quest to search for his pregnant girlfriend Julia without setting foot outside. Teaming up with his hated boss Enrique who was just about to fire him, this means travelling via sewer, subway line, cellars and basements, avoiding opportunistic feral gangs, armed only with a failing Gps device and lots of ingenuity.

Instituto Cervantes New York hosted a press conference with Pablo Berger, director/screenwriter of Blancanieves, and director/screenwriter Paula Ortiz of Chrysalis aka De tu ventana a la mía, moderated by Richard Peña for the Film Society of Lincoln Center's Spanish Cinema Now. Maribel Verdú, Leticia Dolera and Luisa Gavasa give masterful performances in Ortiz's feature debut as they weave in and out of narratives that could be reflections of Lillian Gish from Victor Sjöström's The Wind or Emmanuelle Riva from Alain Resnais' Hiroshima, Mon Amour.
In my conversation with Paula Ortiz we spoke about the telling of three women, three destinies and the history of Spain in the 20th century.
Fairy tales are present in her movie, as they are in Blancanieves by Berger, with whom I had a snow white »

The Cannes Film Market is teaming with the Paris Region’s Ile de France and Paris-based Espagnolas en Paris on Small Is Biutiful, a launch-pad for Spanish directors and producers seeking French distribution, co-production and sales agents.
A showcase of projects in development chosen by Espagnolas’ Javier Martin and Alain Coiffier, with Jose Maria Riba, which is traditionally attended by dozens of French execs, Small is co-organized by Ile de France Film Commission. The Market will upload directors’ prior pics — both shorts and features — onto Cinando, the Market’s database and networking website, which also operates a VOD service.
Cinando has created a new video library website, http://www.cinandoVL.com, for use by festivals and co-production markets, allowing their participants to view before meeting prior works by selected projects’ directors. The first event will be Cannes Cinefondation’s L’Atelier, said Cannes Market director Jerome Paillard.

A high-profile Spanish project that’s uneven on every level except technique, the watchable but forgettable “The Last Days” finds helmers Alex and David Pastor failing to deliver on the promise of their 2009 English-language debut, “Carriers.” Also an apocalyptic thriller, but this time set in Spain and shot in Spanish, the pic is overblown where “Carriers” was subtle, and probes far less deeply into the human consequences of living in the bizarre world it depicts. That said, there’s still enough energy and gloss to ensure the pic will play well to undemanding auds, and it’s held its own against higher-profile American offerings in local release. Presales have been brisk.
Barcelona-based project manager Marc (Quim Gutierrez) is struggling to meet his work deadlines, a fact duly noted by Enrique (Jose Coronado, grizzled and charismatic), a hard-nosed troubleshooter brought into the company to clear out deadwood. The film transitions fairly smoothly between these scenes, »
