Embrace Friday the 13th with Alex Winston’s Video for “The Day I Died”
Winston takes a stab at classic slasher flicks.
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.
