Massive Attack Recruit Rosamund Pike for Haunting New Video

“Voodoo in My Blood,” featuring Young Fathers, merges ‘Phantasm’ with Andrzej Zulawski’s ‘Possession’

Massive Attack have unveiled “Voodoo in My Blood,” the latest video from the trip-hop progenitors’ recent Ritual Spirit EP.

The Ringan Ledwidge-directed video itself merges the menacing ball from Phantasm and the maniacal subway scene from Andrzej Zulawski’s Possession: In “Voodoo in My Blood,” recorded with Scottish rap-pop group Young Fathers, Gone Girl actress Rosamind Pike cautiously walks down toward London’s Joe Strummer Subway until she’s confronted by a floating orb that sticks a needle in her eye. After scanning her retina, the orb takes control of Pike’s character, forcing her to smash her head into the wall and convulse with the music.

“Am I involved? … Someone said the girl in the video looks like me. I have been to the Joe Strummer subway. I did have a strange encounter there once,” Pike said in a statement. Pike is the second Oscar-nominated star to appear in a Ritual Spirit video: Winter’s Bone‘s John Hawkes previously appeared in the video for the Tricky-featuring “Take It There.”

Massive Attack are currently touring Europe, with Young Fathers serving as opening act.
