Twisted Music Video Of The Week Vol. 95: Five Knives “The Rising (Director’s Cut)”

fiveknivestherisingdirectorscutscreencap

It’s Friday and my weekend is gonna be full of horror movies, picnics, and the Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival! So I wanted a twisted video that was intense but playful, twisted yet awesome. So who better to turn to than one of the best music video directors of today: Mr. Phil Mucci! This is the man who brought such amazing videos as Opeth‘s “The Devil’s Orchard”, Pig Destroyer‘s “The Diplomat”, and much, much more. He’s also currently working on Huntress‘s “Zenith”, which will be released soon (check out the trailer here).

Today we’re gonna be looking at Mucci’s video for “The Rising”, from Nashville artists Five Knives. The video, which is highly influenced by The Strangers, is a one-shot take of three people being accosted by intruders. I particularly liked the fact that the victims were moving to the music while their friend was getting the everliving shit kicked out of them.

You can download The Rising EP on the band’s official website.
