William Clark Green Releases Classic ’80s Horror Music Video for “Baker Hotel”

Eastland, TX roots-Americana singer/songwriter William Clark Green has released a music video for the album-titled “Baker Hotel” inspired by the spirit of classic 1980s horror films.

Directed by Billy Cano, the eight-minute clip is brimming with keystones of cinematic spookiness: fluttering bats, theremin and thunder sounds, Halloween costumes, a haunted building, teenage pranks, ghosts, and more. Green narrates the main characters’ every tip-toed move in the cryptic but catchy country rock barnburner, eventually laying down the gauntlet that has enticed many adolescents of the real-life Mineral Wells: “I double dog dare ya / Show us what you got / You ain’t nothing but a chicken til you make it to the top.” The video was filmed inside the actual abandoned Baker Hotel, the inspiration for Green’s forthcoming album of the same name, out on March 25 on Bill Grease Records (pre-add here).
