Avey Tare's Slasher Flicks online:


Earlier this year, Animal Collective member Avey Tare and his band Slasher Flicks released their debut album Enter the Slasher House. Of course, there's no time better for slasher flicks than Halloween, so the group have shared a spooky new video.

Revisiting the album, Flicks have shared a video for "Catchy (Was Contagious)." The black-and-white video was directed by Abigail Portner, with photography directed by Giovanni Ribisi.

Portner shared the following statement about the video:
I wanted to make a video that referenced old horror movies from the 1950s Universal horror era. I am obsessed with movies like The Third Man, Truffaut's 400 Blows and Ingmar Bergman's films. I wanted it to have the style of classic old LA so we used the LA river and the neighborhoods surrounding it as locations. The movie Them from the 1940s was shot on the LA river and I wanted it to have that feel also. Parts of Grease and Chinatown were filmed there too. The videos I make for Animal Collective and my own personal style is pretty specific so it was great to work with Giovanni [Ribisi, director of photography] because I feel like he just got it. We were on the same page thematically, reference-wise and with regards to the style of filming and our goal — to create something that has a classic, pretty 1950's feel to it but the undertone is still very dark.
