The Killers keep making headlines with their video releases, but while their last one had a Christmas theme, the latest, "Here With Me," might be better suited for Halloween.
Directed by Tim Burton, it was filmed in the British resort town of Blackpool, according to Rolling Stone and -- oh, yeah, features Winona Ryder as the odd love interest of a young man.
"The first time I saw The Killers perform live was in Blackpool, UK shortly after completing work on our first collaboration, the music video for 'Bones,'" wrote Burton in a post on the band's website. "When I heard the song 'Here With Me' I remembered seeing a wax figure of Winona in Louis Tussaud's Waxworks in Blackpool. The concept of the video is inspired by the 1935 film 'Mad Love,' starring Peter Lorre, as well as the works of Mario Bava."
Still, high-minded or not, Ryder (who appeared in Burton's 1990 film "Edward Scissorhands" and 1988's "Beetlejuice") does a dead-on, dead-eyed mannequin imitation. (Among a few other roles -- including a diner filled with Winonas.)
