Broken The Movie

nin_broken

Broken (informally known as The Broken Movie) is a 1993 horror musical short film/long form music video filmed and directed by Peter Christopherson, based on a scenario by Trent Reznor, the founder of the industrial rock band Nine Inch Nails. The film is a companion piece to the band’s 1992 EP Broken, featuring its songs and music and compiling its music videos (the exception being “Last” and the two hidden tracks). The movie, roughly 20 minutes in length, weaves Broken’s four music videos together via a violent “snuff film” framing sequence, concluding with an otherwise unreleased video for the EP’s final song “Gave Up,” setting the conclusion of the film’s frame story to the song. Due to its extremely graphic content, the Broken movie was never officially released, but was leaked as a bootleg which became heavily traded on VHS in the 1990s, and more recently via the Internet.

Trent Reznor once said that the Broken movie “…makes ‘Happiness in Slavery‘ look like a Disney movie.” [1] and while his comments about the movie have been cryptic at best, he makes no secret of the film’s existence.
