Horror filmmaker and composer John Carpenter has released a new music video for his instrumental track “Utopian Facade.”
Directed by Gavin Hignight and Ben Verhulst, the video is all about a heroine facing off against things that go bump in the night.
“(We were) not trying to rip off [Carpenter’s] films, but more trying to understand the feeling and vibe of those films, then translate that into a shortform piece that felt original, but familiar at the same time,” Hignight tells Dazed. “His work stands the test of time because of the way it’s carefully lit and shot, the thought that goes into each and every character, and in my opinion his use of practical effects. We strove to do that on a smaller scale.”
