To celebrate Friday the 13th, 300 Entertainment singer-songwriter Alex Winston today releases the slasher movie-themed clip for her radiant synth pop anthem "The Day I Died," off her recently released three-song EP of the same name. 

In the clip, directed by Jeremy S. Collins, Winston and two friends, played by Rachel Zeiger-Haag and Jillian Mason, visit a camp site eerily similar to Camp Crystal Lake, from the 1980 horror classic "Friday The 13th." And as she sings, "Shake me out if I'm alive, 'cause I feel 3,000 miles away / I see you coming to me, I see you coming to me," the lyrics take on a whole new meaning, as the trio encounter a masked knife-wielding killer played by Ian Lawton-King (though, spoiler alert: they fall in love in the end).

"I wanted to pay homage to classic '80s slasher films," Winston tells Billboard of the clip's inspiration. "I was also inspired by "Heathers" and its tongue and cheek nature. With a title like 'The Day I Died,' I felt like I had to camp it up with the video, so that's exactly what we did. I've never really been one to shy away from blood and guts."

Embrace the camp with the clip above, and if you haven't already, have a listen the rest of Winston's stellar The Day I Died EP now.
