Massachusetts’ Speedy Ortiz has shared the new video for “American Horror,” which appears on the recently released Real Hair EP.

Directed by Peter Binswanger, the video channels B-movie horror with animated tentacles and devilish eyes. We travel into each musician’s subconsciousness during the pop-fueled song, seeing what’s haunting their thoughts. It’s spooky, gooey and, at some points, pretty funny.

Check out their “American Horror” video above (via Pitchfork), and catch Speedy Ortiz on tour now.
