Music Video of the Day: Knights of Cydonia by Muse (2006, dir by Joseph Kahn)

What happens if you mash together every single European grindhouse film ever made and then get Muse to provide the soundtrack?

You end up with the video for Knights of Cydonia.

The fun here, of course, is identifying all of the films that are referenced in this video.  Obviously, there’s a lot of Sergio Leone there.  There’s also some karate action and a Planet of the Apes reference.  Whenever the cowboys shoot their laser guns, I’m reminded of one of Lucio Fulci’s post-apocalyptic films.
