Yeah, to me this still has something to do with horror, it's Slipknot people!The Grammy Award winning band's fifth single and video Snuff from their latest album All Hope Is Gone is an emotional roller coaster ride and is likely to generate more questions than answers. The video stars two legends from the horror genre, Ashley Laurence (Hellraiser) and one of the masters himself, Malcom McDowell (Heroes,Halloween 1 &2,Star Trek Generations,etc...). The video is co-directed by Slipknot's own M. Shawn Crahan and renowned photographer/director P.R. Brown. Snuff shows frontman Cory Taylor as you've never seen him before! Enjoy the video below!
Subtleties fill the film. The scenes unfold in apartment number 009. A skull sits next to a snow globe. Sun peeks through the apartment windows at different points, providing the concept of a time shift. It's not clear if any of this particularly matters, but the sum of the parts seems to indicate that it does. A lot.
In the end, "Snuff" provides a haunting look into the obsessed mind of a melancholy lover, heartbroken over a lost paramour. Perhaps we all live double lives in the end.
