Arcade Fire, avid fans of quirky costumes galore, have unveiled a delightfully scary treat in celebration of Halloween: a horror film! Directed by “Noreen Bauble,” one of the band’s many monikers, Festi is a truly bizarre 21-minute visual that takes a look back at their 2011 summer festival tour. The best part of the flick, however, might be its star-studded cast in James Murphy, Fleet Foxes, The National, Peter Gabriel, Slash, and Andrew Garfield, among others.
While the film is centered around Win Butler’s 27th birthday, things take a turn for the worst when the curse of the 27 Club rears its ugly head and the band has to deal with murder, mystery, and, yes, even Jim Morrison’s ghost. Things to definitely look out for: James Murphy playing the role of “sad DJ,” The National/Dessner brothers as freaky twins, and Slash belting out “Sweet Child O’ Mine”.
Watch Festi below, followed by its official film poster.
