Channeling Heath Ledger’s role of the joker in the Dark Knight, Mary Magdalan puts her most psychotic face on in her latest music video, “The Dark Passenger.”
The music video combines three songs from Mary Magdalan’s double album R.I.P., which dropped in 2009. The fast-paced mini movie resembles the extreme close-ups seen in The Blair Witch Project, just with more alarming make-up. The female Ozzy Osbourne is quirky, evil, dangerous and promiscuous. Despite her terrorizing qualities, she harbors the ability to lure you in.
Embodying elements of horror films, “The Dark Passenger” strongly correlates to one of the most epic of the genre, The Ring. The video is too tempting not to turn on, too mesmerizing to shut off and too striking to ever erase from the mind.
