Alex Southam's riveting, crazy whirlwind of a video for Bring Me The Horizon, has frontman Oli Sykes is a down-at-heel outsider who is remodelled by a sinister corporation to lead a cult - with hair-raising results.

In this supercharged Director's Cut, Southam manages to cram pretty much a B-movie's worth of lurid, satirical comic horror into four piledriving minutes of action, with the panache of an early Cronenberg. 

Mantra is a chaotic mix of mendacity, vulnerability, revenge, served up on a bed of psychotropic drugs, with a helping of voodoo for pudding. Hold on to your hats.
