We all know the hierarchy of slasher movie murders. There’s an established formula to them. The most likely characters to be unfortunately killed are as follows, in order:
- Any person of color.
- Horny teenagers.
- The chaste good girl. (Optional.)
Alex Winston plays with this idea in her video for “The Day I Died,” an homage to classic slasher flicks like Friday the 13th, which, hey, that’s today’s date. Here's Alex on making it:
"We shot the video in a cabin in up state New York and I wouldnt have been surprised if you told me Ted Kaczynski owned the place. It was that perfect. This was my first time taking a stab at horror and it was such a cool experience to try and recreate a story line that held true to the genre."
“The Day I Died” is the title track from a fantastic EP Winston released this year as we all eagerly anticipate her proper follow-up to 2012’s King Con. Speaking of which, don’t think we didn’t catch that “Velvet Elvis” reference in this video. Watch the video above and fall in love with slashers. Literally.
