Just in time for Halloween, singer Doug Locke has released his new music video, “In or Our,” in which he plays a sexy, blood-sucking, bisexual vampire.
“I’ve had a thing for vampires since I was young,” Locke tells OUT. “I grew up on Buffy, Blade, Anne Rice, and True Blood. Vampires exude an effortless sensuality that I felt was a perfect reflection of the vibe of the song.”

It feels like a perfect storm when you encounter an artist with not only a vibrant vision, but a ferocious level of creativity and a perfect union of talent and craft. Eivind is one of those artists. I had the pleasure of sitting for a portrait shoot with Eivind during my last visit to London. This was one of my favorite shoots. Eivind is one of my favorite people. Thank you for creating a space for such honesty and vulnerability. #EivindHansen #CelebrateArtists #FilmIsNotDead #120mmFilm #DougLocke #Portrait #London ? @eivindhansen
Locke says the video uses vampirism as a metaphor for the sexual fluidity.
“I wanted to celebrate the beauty of embracing love unapologetically,” he says. “The music video is a tribute one of my favorite films, the ’80s vampire cult classic The Lost Boys.”
He continues: “Imagine if The Lost Boys crashed a house party picking off victims one by one with the levity of Britney Spears’ Toxic. I was inspired by the charisma of Anne Rice’s character Lestat, the Vampire, and by the look and feel of Fiona Apple’s Criminal music video.”
