Right from the start of Franz Ferdinand’s video for “Evil Eye,” you’re warned that this clip might not be safe for children. And trust us, it isn’t.

Shot like a low budget schlock fest, the clip is a nod to all those cheesy B-horror movies from the ’70s. The band is outfitted in fake mustaches, riding around in a hearse as fake blood spurts out of decapitated mannequins, sink faucets and a crow’s mouth. And of course, you get a shot of the unattached eye that is presumably evil.

On the song off their latest album, Right Thoughts, Right Words, Right Action, which sounds more than a little bit like Queen’s “Another One Bites The Dust,” frontman Alex Kapranos sings, “I have the evil eye/ I see your soul”  as he fondles a mummified corpse.

And that’s not even the grossest thing you’ll see in this clip. Other notable gross out moments include an overweight man,whose belly is actually Kapranos’ face, picking his nose and someone puking into someone else’s bath.

Franz Ferdinand kick off their U.S. tour on October 4 in Houston, Texas.
