Roxanne Benjamin has been busy in the horror world of late, having made her directorial debut with a segment of this year’s anthology film “Southbound” after serving as a producer on all three “V/H/S” movies. Now she’s back with a throwback music video for Cherry Glazerr “Nurse Ratched,” which you can watch below.
In it, a girl wearing a red hoodie hitchhikes her way into a ride and goes on to confirm all your worst fears about people on the side of the road with their thumbs up; this leads to one of the bloodiest sequences you’re ever likely to see in a music video, especially for such a low-key song. From there, she takes the car for herself — and picks up an unsuspecting hitchhiker of her own.
The title of the song is, of course, a reference to the domineering nurse from “One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest,” who comes close to making Miloš Forman’s Best Picture winner a horror movie in its own right.
