The video opened to the sound of chiming bell as the camera zoomed in on Mariah’s ruby-red crystal-studded heels.  

The five-time Grammy Award winner, who was clad in a sparkly red gown that had a high back slit, swung the bat menacingly behind her feet before strutting towards the front door of a house.

She opened the door and emerged in front of another doorway that was decorated for Halloween.
