Here’s a treat for you guys who love both Frankenstein’s monster and ghoulishly groovy tunes! Behold Life in a Blender’s new music video “Frankenstein Cannot Be Stopped,” created and directed by award-winning art-horror filmmaker Larry Fessenden.
From the Press Release
Popdose premieres Life in a Blender’s first official video, “Frankenstein Cannot Be Stopped” from their new acclaimed album We Already Have Birds That Sing.
The video was created and directed by the award-winning art-horror filmmaker Larry Fessenden (Wendigo, Habit, No Telling, The Last Writer).
“Frankenstein Cannot Be Stopped,” written by Life in a Blender’s frontman, Don Rauf, is a song about a man watching the tragic film Frankenstein, hoping against hope for a different outcome. Rauf explains, “It’s about that feeling you get when you watch all great tragedies. You think somehow Othello won’t murder Desdemona. Somehow Frankenstein won’t kill that little girl.”
Rauf continues, “Filmmaker Larry Fessenden did an amazing job capturing that feeling of the distraught theater-goer who can’t accept the inevitable–the horror will never change, and yet, he can’t stop himself from seeing it over and over… We were fortunate to film at Theatre 80, which has a great history as a film revival house. Throughout the 1980s, I saw many a great double bill there, including the original Frankenstein. Larry not only captured the magic of Theatre 80, he nailed the feeling of the original Frankenstein, replicating the pivotal monster-girl scene from the movie and, in some scenes, bringing life to a lifeless puppet.”
