With the first seven months officially under our belts, I am going to take a look back at seven of the best SciFi and Horror films from the first half of the year.
This is not the first time I've written about SciFi music videos and it likely won't be the last. There's a wealth of material out there, and honestly it's pretty fun to see what musical acts, particularly big-budget names, come up with to tell their musical stories.
