Watch: New Nine Inch Nails Video Directed By David Lynch Might Give You Seizures

While David Lynch might be concerned that the current cinematic climate doesn’t have room from distinctive filmmakers like him, he’s found other creative outlets for his work behind the camera. He’s directed ads for his own coffee line, webcasts and a bumper for the Viennale festival, but that’s when he’s not meditating or embarking on a music career. And now comes a music video for none other than Nine Inch Nails.

The latest from Trent Reznors band is “Came Back Haunted,” and Lynch directs the video which warns you off the top that it may you leave you on the floor, frothing at the mouth. And yes it’s Lynch-ian, with grey clouds, papier maché (we think), lightning bolts, strobing lights and more. Of course, this is a reunion of sorts, as Reznor produced the soundtrack and contributed original music to “Lost Highway” way back when Lynch was actually making movies. But hey, it’s always nice to see a favor returned. NIN’s new album Hesitation Marks is out on September 3rd, while Lynch’s own musical adventure The Big Dream drops July 16th. Watch below. [AV Club]

you've still got a Herzog link in there. amateur hour…


That qualifies as directing?


I think you're confusing him with Werner Herzog in the first paragraph. Check your links.

I think the video is unbelievably good. The song is also very good.


Nice song, Bad video. [BTW I am a David Lynch fan].
