I have absolutely NO IDEA how this video for The Killers “Here With Me” slipped past me when it came out almost a year ago. And yet it did and now it’s up for a Twisted Music Video Of The Week due to my being oblivious. With that being said, let me explain a bit on why it’s so cool for us horror fans. It was directed by Tim Burton, who made his music video directing return after 6 years, and it also stars Lydia Deetz herself, Winona Ryder.
The video follows the path of a slightly crazed and delusional fan. He goes to a performance that features Ryder and, when she’s out afterwards signing autographs, he lurks in the back. Turns out he has a mannequin that he has altered to look just like Ryder and he is desperate to see her real. He and the mannequin go on several dates before enjoying a completely surreal candlelit dinner. Head on down to check it out!
“Here With Me” comes from 2012’s Battle Born, which you can purchase on iTunes.
