When Cody [Snider, director] and I first started discussing the video for “Devil’s Night”, my original idea was to just for once go all out in the direction of creating a badass horror movie-esque video, and step back from trying to really drive a strong message home. I didn’t want to feel like we cornered ourselves into HAVING to do that with every video we’ve done since “Abigail”. This time I was out for something that could potentially scare the hell out of someone, and to really focus on what gets into viewers’ heads. After really digging in to ideas, we came to the point of asking ourselves “Why not do both?” Everything he and I came up with somehow ended up being a metaphorical message that tied in with the lyrics of the song, regardless of how much we weren’t specifically aiming for it. I realized that this is the band we are, and I’d much rather be known for having something inspiring in our video than having it merely exist just to exist. I’m pretty thrilled with the final script and the direction the video went. It has the big horror story and it has the big message. Essentially the two most dominant elements that MIW is comprised of. Whether it scares you or uplifts you, there’s something in this video you will find worth watching. – Chris Motionless
