Just when you thought Coheed and Cambria couldn’t appeal more to nerdy teens and grown men living in their parent’s basement, comes this:
In an unprecedented move, FEARnet, the world’s premier destination for horror film enthusiasts, is set to become the exclusive host of the director’s cut of the infamous Coheed and Cambria video for their current single, “Feathers,” today, May 21. The Hitchcockian black and white video, is a dark comedy, directed by Marc Klasfeld (Gnarls Barkley, Foo Fighters, Bloodhound Gang) and focuses on a “perfect” 1950s American family who have a very naughty secret. “Feathers” stars Rena Riffel, known for her roles in “Mulholland Drive” and “Dante’s Cove,” as the cheerful stay-at-home mom ala “Ozzie and Harriet,” but this mom has more than a conniving grin. Reminiscent of the works of David Lynch and John Waters, what appears normal on the surface is not quite so when you take a closer look. Klasfeld’s cut contains mildly graphic scenes that were not in the MTV version of the video.
