UPDATED: Slipknot Unveil 'Snuff'


Mad masked metallers Slipknot posted a cryptic, ominous teaser for Snuff, the upcoming short film/music video promoting the fifth single from last year's chart-busting album All Hope is Gone. The short looks intense, creepy and even a bit giallo-like in its eerie fetishistic attention to strange details... and hey, did I just see Hellraiser veteran Ashley Laurence? Get a peek at the first haunting footage after the jump...

Directed by M. Shawn “Clown” Crahan and P.R. Brown, the LA-shot video for Snuff has the potential to be pretty intense – at least if the brooding, angst-dripping track itself is any indication (“So save your breath, I will not care/I think I made it very clear... I only wish you weren't my friend/Then I could hurt you in the end”). Either way, it looks like the characters in this little psycho-drama have issues that probably won't be worked out to their mutual satisfaction. Ashley's role in the proceedings is still a mystery, however...

The complete video is set to premiere tomorrow, and the band is starting to post still images from it on their website... but for now, viddy the teaser below!
