Dum Dum Girls – “Are You Okay” Short Film (Written By Bret Easton Ellis)
Dum Dum Girls didn’t just make a music video for “Are You Okay,” a humid sigh of a song from their new album Too True. Instead, they got the famed American Psycho/Less Than Zero author Bret Easton Ellis to script them a creepy, inscrutable 11-minute psychological-horror short film for it. Dum Dums leader Dee Dee stars as a woman who, under hypnosis, conjures a demonic blonde doppelganger. Or at least, I think that’s what happens. Desert landscapes and strange art installations also figure heavily. Brewer directed the film, and Tamaryn and Drew MacDowall contributed the interstitial score. Watch it below.
