Instead of dreaming up their own music video for the new single “Are You Okay?,” indie rockers the Dum Dum Girls asked Less Than Zero author Bret Easton Ellis to write a script for them. The result is an unsettling and somewhat inscrutable 11-minute horror film soundtracked by the Dum Dum Girls’ solemn song. In case you didn’t remember, the video serves as a perfect reminder that Ellis also penned American Psycho.

The tense psychological thriller stars Shiloh Fernandez (The East, Red Riding Hood), Sophia Marzocchi and band member Dee Dee Penny as a woman who under goes hypnosis and then has to face down a demonic doppelganger while sorting through dark secrets. The video for the Too True single, which premiered at Noisey, was directed by Brewer (Alt J, Purity Ring, Passion Pit) and produced by Braxton Pope, with additional musical score composed by Tamaryn and Drew MacDowall.
