Trip hop veterans Massive Attack and Young Fathers drop the video for “Voodoo In My Blood,” their collaboration off Massive Attack’s Ritual Spirit EP from last year.

The Ringan Ledwidge-directed music video is a creepy and uneasy affair that follows actress Rosamund Pike (who you might remember as the very creepy "girl" in Gone Girl) to a deserted subway station where she becomes overpowered by an evil floating sphere that takes control of her body and mind.

"Am I involved?... Someone said the girl in the video looks like me. I have been to the Joe Strummer subway. I did have a strange encounter there once." Pike mentions in a press release.

Watch Massive Attack and Young Fathers’ “Voodoo In My Blood” below. Young Fathers are currently supporting Massive Attack on an extensive European tour before embarking on their own North American dates.
