Massive Attack's bizarre new video starring Rosamund Pike is riveting from start to finish
Weirdly, Massive Attack's new music video for their track "Voodoo in My Blood" (feat. Scottish hip-hop group Young Fathers) merges imagery from two cult horror films I've recently written about: Don Coscarelli's Phantasm (included on my Watchlist of 5 great telekinesis movies, viewable above) and the late Andrzej Zulawski's Possession, which features a legendary subway meltdown from French actress Isabelle Adjani. Coincidence?
The clip stars Gone Girl's Rosamund Pike, whose long-sleeved blue dress is an obvious tribute to the one Adjani wore in Possession, and it was directed by Ringan Ledwidge, who obviously has a thing for the spinning, deadly silver spheres Coscarelli dreamed up for his bizarro 1979 classic. It's a fascinating video, tailor-made for lovers of cult horror cinema. Watch it below.
