ARCHDALE, NC – Over the years, Kersey Valley Spookywoods, located in Archdale, has opened their “spooky” sets to local area artists for the filming of music videos and movies. As their reputation has grown nationally, so have the requests, which are now being received from studios as far away as the west coast. 

The most recent is a music video completed at Spookywoods entitled “Sleeping Dogs” by Zakk Wylde. Wylde, who was recognized at the Hollywood Rock Walk of Fame in 2006, is known for his stints in Stone Henge, Zyris, and famously as lead guitarist and co-writer for Ozzy Osbourne. He is also widely recognized for his custom Les Paul guitar, which has become known as "The Grail," and features a bullseye. 

Wylde’s “Sleeping Dogs” video was released by Vevo to YouTube on February 25th, and has already received nearly 200,000 views. All the actors in the video work for Spookywoods, and appeared as extras. The video can be seen online at This is the second video Wylde has filmed at Spookywoods.
