A suitably dark and atmospheric video for the gravelly-voiced maestro Mark Lanegan's spellbinding Gravedigger's Song - from the superb new album Blues Funeral - by Alistair Legrand at The Masses, who knew what he was doing when he devised a creepy farmhouse occupied by ghostly women...

"Inspired by the song, I wanted to create something dark and elegant that took place inside of a haunted house," says Alistair. "That's just what the song sounded like to me; a dream-like world of slow motion, macabre imagery.

"I also loved the idea of a video where you are finding unsettling things in the dark with a flashlight, and you look even though you don't want to look. This probably comes from growing up on a wonderfully creepy farm. A story of sisters, ghosts and roses started to take shape as the video was shot."
