Kanye's 'Monster' Video Creeps Across the Web

The highly-anticipated music video for Kanye West's 'Monster' (featuring Jay-Z, Nicki Minaj, Rick Ross, and Bon Iver) hit the web today - though unofficially.  The horror-centric music video - one which many fans are comparing to Michael Jackson's 'Thriller' - has been hotly anticipated since a couple of sneak peeks trickled out at the beginning of the month.

The video features scantily-clad, glassy-eyed models dismembered, decapitated, hanged, dead on altars, and being eaten by vampires.  Kanye props up models like living dead dolls, and Nicki Minaj plays an evil dominatrix, punishing a Harajuku version of herself. The video is still very rough: the sync is off, the graphics are unfinished, and it desperately needs a color correction pass.  One of the full moon images still has a Getty watermark on it.  The video is pretty fantastic; I can't wait to see it finished.  Check it out after the jump, before it gets yanked off the web.

P.S: The following video is NSFW
