Montreal based Synthwave act Das Mörtal (aka Cristobal Cortes) has released a new video for the track “The Curse” from his debut full-length Always Loved from Lisbon Lux Records. Read the Get Some review of Always Loved here.
The video, directed by Pablo Escobar Tuduri is a humorous roll reversal, where famous movie slashers Jason Vorhees, Leatherface, Pennywise the Clown and Samara from the Ring movies go on vacation at a campground. They are hunted down one by one by a vengeful female camper staying nearby. The stalkers become the prey. In addition, Jason is having an affair with Samara, and they are both killed as they are about to make love, in an ironic nod to the simple morality of the Friday the 13th films from the 80s.
Das Mortal is about to embark on his first US headlining tour starting in April. Buy tickets to all 12 shows here.
