    David Lynch directs the "Came Back Haunted" video!

    Great news!!
    Didn't someone actually say this on here??

    David Lynch is set to join forces with Nine Inch Nails in order to direct the video for their song 'Came Back Haunted'.

    The band's frontman Trent Reznor tweeted a picture of himself and the legendary film director earlier today (June 18) and Pitchfork reports that the pair are once again.

    I can't help but picture this video in my head every time I listen to the song now.

    I really wish they would do a video for the next single instead. I don't know if Came Back Haunted can capture the public like a "The Perfect Drug"-type song could.

    Nevertheless, the video itself should be more than interesting enough...

    The only reason Lost Highway or The Perfect Drug got as much hype and attention back then was because Trent was at his peak as a celebrity. If he hadn't been involved in the soundtrack, it's doubtful anyone outside of Lynch's core audience would have given two shits about either.

    CBH is five times as catchy as The Perfect Drug. If Trent released The Perfect Drug today, it would generate zero public interest.

    while i will agree that trent's involvement got more people into it, it wasn't just him. the soundtrack also has a smashing pumpkins song, some david bowie, and various other artists who all have pretty big fan bases. it was also the only film to ever advertise having gotten two thumbs down from siskel & ebert. it garnered plenty of attention on its own.

    and i highly doubt you're correct about your second point.

    Am I losing my mind or were there plans for a further collaboration between Reznor and Lynch after Lost Highway? I can't find anything on the subject.
    (...before Came Back Haunted, in case that isn't obvious.)

    It was Lynch's first film since the Twin Peaks era, as well. Also, let's not forget the soundtrack included an outtake from 'Antichrist Superstar' (Manson was considered a posterboy for goth/scary at this time). Then there's Rammstein; this was around when Du Hast was blowing up over here in the States.

    I miss Lynch. He wasn't doing any film work for a while. Hey, and Trent wasn't doing NIN for a while. I guess this means they are both coming back... uh... *don't say it*

    Came Back Haunted seems like good subject matter for a Lynch film from a thematic standpoint. My secret little hope is that this video (or something like it) sparks Lynch into making another feature.

    Its just wishful thinking on my part, but I think it would be great if Trent called up film directors he knows from previous projects to direct other videos for Hesitation Marks. Just off the top of my head:

    Shinya Tsukamoto: I think Tsukamoto's frenetic cyberpunk style would be spot on for a NIN music video. You could probably play the Tetsuo movies and Bullet Ballet on mute and play some NIN over them and they would go together.

    David Fincher: Fincher is open to music videos again, having directed a Timberlake video, so it would be nice if he did a quip pro quo for the guy who scored his last two movies. I thought his Only video was OK, but I think he could do more than that if he had another shot at it. Something more in the line of his Perfect Circle video. The opening to Seven is, in a way, kind of a great music video to the Closer remix. I also think the opening to Dragon Tattoo for Immigrant Song was fantastic.

    Oliver Stone: Stone's movie output lately hasn't been his best, but I think he still does interesting things with visuals in his films. His visual style from U-Turn and Savages could work for a NIN video.

    John Hillcoat: I thought the Ice Age video was decent, but his films look like they would visually fit in with NIN. Especially something that looked like The Road.

    Mark Romanek: He's a film director now so he qualifies. I'm always down for another Reznor/Romanek video.

    The Only video felt like an experiment to mess around with 3D ideas and looked more like an Apple ad than a music video.
    Trent should call Mark Romanek while he's messing around with TDS imagery, but him to choose David Lynch is kinda mind blowing to be honest, and couldn't expect anything cooler I have to add.

    Those opening titles were done by Kyle Cooper from Imaginary Forces. He now runs Prologue and still works with opening titles for movies and motion graphics. I'd love to see him working with NIN material to create some visuals.

    The Only video got me into Nine Inch Nails in the first place, in my opinion it does a superb job of capturing the song's vibe, pace and theme.
    I'd love to see Tsukamoto try his hand at a NIN video though.

    Man, I really can't wait to see this. That picture NIN put up from the shooting of the video has me all kinds of pumped and eagerly awaiting it. I could totally use a Nine Inch Nails video too to liven up my days at my new job.

    Recent story about David Lynch

    http://www.breitbart.com/Big-Hollywo...ovies-business

    "It's a very depressing picture. With alternative cinema – any sort of cinema that isn't mainstream – you're fresh out of luck in terms of getting theatre space and having people come to see it. Even if I had a big idea, the world is different now," the filmmaker recently told The Independent. "Unfortunately, my ideas are not what you'd call commercial, and money really drives the boat these days. So I don't know what my future is. I don't have a clue what I'm going to be able to do in the world of cinema."

    I'd love it if Trent did some work on Lynch's next album (after The Big Dream of course). Crazy Clown Time isn't for everybody, but it was one of my favorite albums of 2011, and I'd love to see what Trent could do on a David Lynch track.

    Lynch is kinda past his prime. Looks like they shot the video on DSLR, so i'm not expecting great things.

    Give Rob S. a decent budget, and he'll do better than Lynch.
