Video for The Killers Here With Me Starring Winona Ryder and Craig Roberts
Posted on December 17, 2012
Here is the new video for the Killers single "Here With Me." Tim Burton directed the macabre music video which stars Winona Ryder as an actress who has an obsessed fan. The fan has a mannequin that looks just like the actress, which comes to life when he looks at her (in his mind, at least). He also sees here everywhere, due to the depth of his obsession. Winona worked with Tim Burton on his films Beetlejuice and Edward Scissorhands.
Burton explained on the Killers website how he found the inspiration for the video, which was shot in Blackpool: "The first time I saw The Killers perform live was in Blackpool, UK shortly after completing work on our first collaboration, the music video for Bones. When I heard the song "Here With Me" I remembered seeing a wax figure of Winona in Louis Tussaud's Waxworks in Blackpool. The concept of the video is inspired by the 1935 film Mad Love, starring Peter Lorre, as well as the works of Mario Bava. It was a pleasure to film in Blackpool and to work with The Killers, Winona Ryder and Craig Roberts. I hope you enjoy and Happy Holidays!"
Tim Burton is a very creative director. The last scene is really freaky. Take as look:
