Forget the smoky, blue and red stage light ambiance of the originals. Instead, imagine cowering in a corner while some half-animal half-human THING, bathed in black light and dripping with blood, shrieks while it tears the place apart searching for you. Xiu Xiu has brilliantly transformed Badalamenti's jazz flecked compositions into a true horror show. Think Trent Reznor, not Julee Cruise.
