This is "The Initiation," the latest single from artist and poet Mykki Blanco, who manages to conjure up an unsettling story of mutants using just one creepy special effect — and an eerie way of walking on all fours while chanting in Latin.

There are shades of Mad Max here, as well as gangster movies. It just gets more intense the more you watch.

This video was directed by Ninian Doff and produced by Pulse Films.
