Death takes the form of a beautiful woman (Alexandra Cherkasova-Sluzhitel) in this video for Russian rappers Haski and Maslo Chernogo Tmina by writer-director Lado Kvataniya (previously featured here). “Kill Me” follows Haski and Tmin as they perform a series of mystical rituals to go on a date with Death, as Kvataniya explains:

“The whole video is a metaphor about the inability to find peace, necessary understanding and personal fulfilment in real life. The clinical death of both protagonists should not be taken literally. This is a transition, an intended escape which can be compared to a dream or a fairy tale, the world of fantasies where we often build castles in the air but where we can never get into.”

Warning: Some viewers may find the themes and imagery in this video disturbing.
