Yay ^_^ My first post here. Please join the group and encourage others to join, okay?
Zull, Peggy, and Jack Spooky
The Candy Spooky Theater is one of the lesser known J-Rock-ish bands, but it's nowhere near unknown. They're known for their Tim Burtonesque titles and drawing, songs that sound like they're from a haunted amusement park, and, in my opinion, cutely morbid outfits.
Exosist is their first PV, and while there could have been a lot more going on, the fact that things seem to keep repeating themselves gives it a creepy, almost 'wth is up with this' style. The song isn't as active as 'Devilish Kidnapper' and 'Trick or Treat', but it's still the catchy CST style. I'll stop rambling now and get on with it...
The entire PV is dark and sometimes it's a little hard to see what's going on. It opens up showing the inside of a cluttered room, showing the names of who is in it, etc. Jack Spooky is 'Jeckel', Peggy is 'Hyena', and Zull is 'The Doll.' There is also a girl, but she is not introduced.
Freaks me out, too...
Jack is seen putting out a ciggarette in an already filled tray and picking up a knife. Peggy is eating something that looks like a sammich. Zull is just sitting, keeping out of the way. Jack starts cutting his own hand but quickly pulls away. There's a flash of quick images, making it even harder to understand, but then you see Jack stabbing Tsutomu (basically, the mascot doll).
After that, everyone seems to be back where they were, and the lolita girl is sitting in between Peggy and Zull. Many repeated shots of Jack just standing with his cigarette. Eventualy, Jack gets up, kicks the camera (or the TV..?), Peggy licks blood from his fingers, and the lyrics begin.
The screen goes black, and we return to the same scene, where Peggy is eating something else. The girl knocks it from his hand and starts talking to either Zull or Jack.
(Finally) They're outside, walking around. Zull is skipping, though XD. The girl is eating ice cream while sitting next to Jack. He says/does something and she walks off. She sees Peggy and throws the cone at his feet. Jack and Peggy follow her.
Walk away while you can...
After a few filler shots, including a confusing one in with a guy in a bright shirt, the girl is in a light white dress, Jack, Peggy, and Zull still following her. Jack pushes her over and then starts repeatedly stabbing her. And then starts eating her insides.
Cut to a dining table where it looks like her insides were that night's meal. There are many crosses there. There is a small change in the music here, almost like a proper Victorian string piece, as they eat. After many filler shots, we return to the dark room, where everyone, including the girl, is sitting in their spots. Yet again, Jack gets up and stabs Tsutomu, but looks from the girl and Zull caused him to stop. More confusing shots, and then Peggy and Jack get n their knees and pray. A man in a suit seems to be running to (or from?) their room. The rest of the PV is just repeated shots, untol the end when all but Zull are praying, and the girl takes this opportunity to take some of the food from the floor.
Quite obviously, three main words to describe this experience would be dark, confusing, and unique. This video makes you think about what happened, is it all a dream, is there even a point, etc. You can either think of this as horrible, average, or brilliant. I think it's somewhere along the brilliant line, but it's not something I'd like to watch everyday...kinda makes youtr head hurt a little if you watch it for too long...
But for their first PV, it expresses CST perfectly.
I give it...☆☆☆+1/2 stars!
That's all for now ^^~
