Watch Arcade Fire's short horror film 'Festi'

Posted on

Arcade Fire

It’s the end of the day. Most of you have probably already slipped into your best sexy Olaf costumes by now, but for those of you near a computer, here’s a special treat: a short horror film from Arcade Fire called Festi.

The 20-minute short follows Will Butler on his 27th birthday, centering on the “27 Club Curse.” What should be a fun, celebratory day takes an eerie turn. The band’s standout orchestral violins, for instance, are much more reminiscent of Psycho than Funeral.

Be sure to keep an eye out for special appearances by Peter Gabriel, Slash, James Murphy, and more.
