When the time came to create a visual for the song, once again the band did the unexpected and made a short film. Co-directed by Slipknot’s own M. Shawn Crahan and renowned photographer/director P.R. Brown, the film features frontman Corey Taylor as never seen before, interwoven in an intricate storyline. Taking the viewer on an emotional roller coaster ride, the piece is likely to generate more questions than answers.
“‘Snuff’ as a piece of art is a testament to the evolution of Slipknot,” says Crahan. “It’s taken 10 years of uncompromising vision to finally be able to present portions of the bigger picture. Stay awake, because as always, it’s still continuing.”
