Talk about a wild, horror-themed music video!
Marilyn Manson‘s video for “SAY10”, off his 10th studio album Heaven Upside Down, is horror fan’s wet dream. The video features a woman being attacked by a black-gloved killer in an homage to classic Giallo films. Not only that, but it’s a loving tribute to A Nightmare on Elm Street and its star Johnny Depp, who also appears alongside Manson as Cain and Abel in the music video!
One of the coolest scenes in Elm Street is when Freddy Krueger comes out of the wall and looms over a sleeping Nancy. Here, Manson echoes the sequence using the same special effect trickery: a sheet. Later in the video, Manson nods directly to Depp’s Elm Street demise by covering himself in blood. It’s a reference to the scene in Craven’s classic slasher when Freddy pulls Depp into his bed, unloading buckets of blood all over his ceiling. Spectacular! Heaven Upside Down is out now on Loma Vista.
THIS. IS. NOT. WORK. SAFE.
