Tim Burton gives a gothic polish to The Killer's Here With Me music video

Nightmare Before Christmas-director Tim Burton has created the latest music video (above) for pop-rockers The Killers. Here With Me stars Winona Ryder - who was Burton's goth teen in Beetlejuice - and Peter Lorre creep-a-like Craig Roberts, and was produced by Hannah Cooper at th2ng.

The music video was shot around Blackpool and features The Killers playing at the Blackpool Tower Ballroom. The video is inspired by the Lorre-starring 1935 horror flick Mad Love and follows an actress's obsessed fan who runs off with a mannequin of her.

The song was co-written by the singer from the intensely dull indie group Travis, Fran Healey, and is best enjoyed with the sound muted.

The th1ng group had previously worked with Burton when its th1ng animation and graphics unit created title sequences for many of his movies with titles designer Richard Morrison - including Frankenweenie, Dark Shadows, Sweeney Todd, Batman).
