The Weeknd Gets Dark And Violent In Latest Video

It's not a stretch to say that the Weeknd had to soften his sound a bit in order to reach the mainstream commercial success he's had this year, but after the video for "In the Night," you can't accuse him of softening the visuals that also accompany his career. Imagine a third entry to Quentin Tarantino's Grindhouse double feature (Planet Terror and Death Proof) directed by Bong Joon Ho or Chan-Wook Park, and you've got the idea. It marries exploitation cinema grittiness to the stylistic flourishes of Asian crime cinema, and it is gory and intense.
