Rosamund Pike stars in a new video for Massive Attack’s ‘Voodoo In My Blood’. Taken from the recently released ‘Ritual Spirit’ EP, the track features Young Fathers.

Directed by Ringan Ledwidge, the video is a sci-fi homage to Andrzej Żuławski’s 1981 film ‘Possession’, recalling its unsettling subway scene. It sees Pike walking through the Joe Strummer Subway under West London’s Westway, when a floating orb takes control of her body in what sits somewhere between contemporary dance and violent attack.

“Am I involved?” asks Pike of the video. “Someone said the girl in the video looks like me. I have been to the Joe Strummer subway. I did have a strange encounter there once”.

It is her, yes. Watch for yourself here:
