          The long awaited release of The Haunt is here. It took nearly two years to film and edit as a short

          film where the song replaces dialog. With the recording and release of the new Misfit Toys album 'Closure'

         the film underwent another edit to bring it under the 7 minute mark needed for YouTube. Here it is"

                          "The Haunt"           

                                                                     By Misfit Toys  Starring Kate Lyn Moore

                                                 This song is available on the album 'Closure' by the Misfit Toys

                
Edited down from a short film in which the Misfit Toys song "The Haunt" served as the only dialog and soundtrack this Gothic tale of a woman's infidelity and haunting guilt tells it's story in 7 minutes of suspense and imagery that will keep you guessing and breathing deeply until the very end.
The film stars the beautiful actress and model Kate Lyn Moore and features Ukrainian vocalist Victory Vizhanska in her first recording with the Misfit Toys. The intriguing guitar work by the guitar wizard Dennis Kapoyos will hold you captivated and in no time your heart will be beating in synchronicity with the song.
Misfit Toys have never shied away from paying tribute to Siouxsie and the Banshees and this song may bring you back to the time when Dark music was more than groans and three note series on an organ.
Fans of the Cure, Sisters of Mercy, Ministry, Banshees or other purveyors of Dark Anthems are sure to enjoy this and add the song to their play lists. For others this may be a new experience in music and lead you down a dark road.

  Not to people who dress like it's Halloween and give lip service to the classics but to those who take their music seriously, sometimes too seriously. "Dark Wave" and "Gothic Rock" do not at all imply any ties to Devil or Demon worship. There ay be a similarity at time to this genre of music and horror films but the reverse isn't true. God divided the dark from the light and we live in both. Our lives have ups and down and we all have 'dark days' and that is where the music of Misfiot Toys comes in. We provide not only a sympathetic ear but a voice and a song for yours to let you feel you are not alone, we all have dark times in our lives. While some bands feeel the need to spend their energies on death releated things, vampires, blood or dressing themselves to be as ugly as possible that has never been the Misfit Toys. I believe we took our cue from the bands we liked such as the Cure and the Banshees. Our music doesn't celebrate misery or dark things. It simply provides a soundtrack to life.
