Killers Video Directed By Tim Burton Stars Winona Ryder And That Kid From Being Human

It's Aliiiiiiiiiiiive!

Also, trademark Tim Burton stripes. The new video features long-time Burton collaborator Winona Ryder as a mannequin but also a real-life star of some sort (perhaps herself?). Also along for the ride is actor Craig Roberts who played creepy Adam on the BBC’s Being Human. And well, he might be creepier here as he’s obsessed with Ryder’s character. The director said the film was inspired by the 1935 film Mad Love and that one time he saw Ryder’s wax figure at Louis Tussaud’s. I won’t spoil where this whole story leads but let’s just say, if you weren’t already aware of how strange Burton’s imagination was before, you will certainly be sure of it now.
