slowthai, Skepta 'Cancelled' by The Rest
slowthai and Skepta reinterpret some of the most iconic horror moments in cinema history, in The Rest's ominous promo for Cancelled.
Opening with an homage to the early Noughties Budweiser commercial Whassup? - itself a spoof of Scary Movie - the video soon descends into utter chaos, as the artists embody characters from American Psycho, Texas Chainsaw Massacre and more.
The tongue-in-cheek performances and slowthai's cheeky demeanour help take the edge off what could be quite a grisly concept, instead landing it squarely into parody territory.
DoP Pieter Snyman cleverly intertwines elements of nostalgia and contemporary aesthetics to create a fresh style and look, which perfectly encapsulates the various narrative strands and iconography.
And as this the just Part One of two videos, no doubt there is much more knockabout fun and madness heading our way in the near future. We await with bated breath...
