Florida band Roadkill Ghost Choir have released a spooky video for "A Blow to the Head," that you can watch above. The song is the fourth track from their newest release In Tongues.
The video will require your complete attention, but I assure you it's well worth it. Three captives are held by three people cloaked in black. Trapped in a cage and forced drowning are some of the techniques being used against the slaves. Somehow, they manage to escape, but find themselves face to face with their captors once again. Three boxes are presented to the horrified escapees, and what they contain is left to the viewer to interpret. The driving force of the song adds intensity to the film's creepiness, especially during a chase scene.
In regards to the film's footage, lead singer Andrew Shepard said in a press release:
We found a box of old VHS tapes at this thrift shop in Deland, Florida. One was this old Italian b-horror movie that must have been recorded off of late-night television. The tape was so messed up we couldn't really tell what was happening so we just imagined it. Cults, people in cages, stabbing, running. It doesn't make any sense but it scared the hell out of everyone. We left it on a loop in the studio and it became the inspiration for 'A Blow to the Head'. We took some of the VHS footage and messed with it to make the video. There was also conveniently this old movie poster in the box - see if you can translate it.
