Is David Bowie trying to spook us for Halloween? The rock supernova gifted his fans with a creepy and unnerving music video he wrote, shot, and edited (a regular o'l jack of all trades!) for his "All is Lost" track remixed by James Murphy. Apparently, he also only spent $12.99 on visuals for the production, according to Rolling Stone, which we all may agree is a odd figure that you might see on a sale rack at Target.

Don't let the price tag fool you, however, because Bowie delivered a clip that is chock full of eeriness; wooden puppets stare with menacing eyes, Bowie's head is projected on what appears to be another doll's body, and something seems to be looming in the dark hallways.

The video first premiered at the Mercury Prize Ceremony, an awards show in London, last night before he launched it online. The remixed track will be part of Bowie's The Next Day Extra three-CD, will will come out on Nov. 5.

As for Bowie, we hope he keeps up this David Lynch side of himself.
