violent music video
4 November 1998 | by (toronto, ontario) – See all my reviews

this movie is a 20 minute music video by nine inch nails, created for the cd "broken". it consists of 5 of the 7 songs on the cd; 3 of those songs are the original videos submitted for mtv, while the others are specific to the video itself. it brutally details a man who is kidnapped and tortured while being forced to watch nine inch nails videos, and the fate of the kidnapper. incredibly violent; this movie was never even submitted for release because of the graphic violence and gore; however, it can be found on the internet, and bootleg copies are still floating about. a rare treasure for hardcore NIN fans.
