screams scenes of Beautiful Corpse, the newest music video collaboration of Abyssmal Entertainment and Central Florida’s own The Bloody Jug Band. The story follows a young mortuary makeup artist (played by LeeAnna Vamp) as she finds romance in the most unlikeliest of places.
Today this incredibly cinematic music video premieres online and we’ve got your first peek!
You may recognize some familiar faces. local and otherwise, including actor J. LaRose (Saw III & IV), local actor and comedian AJ Nickell and cosplay model, actress and host, LeeAnna Vamp. (If you look really close, you’ll see a cameo by yours truly!)
What did Director Steven Shea and Ms. Vamp think about the experience?
LeeAnna Vamp: “It was like creepy awesome amazingness all day long! It was great!”
Steven Shea: “We shot in a funeral home, an embalming room, we shot in a cemetery, so you can imagine…”
Vamp: “Things get super creepy!”
Shea: “The party was… pretty dead.”
