This is a weird case, something that we don’t see every day. And it’s not only a rarety for Ganiveta, but it is also for the entertainment business because pop singer Halsey is releasing a horror movie to support her new album “If I Can’t Have Love, I Want Power“.

For those who don’t know about her, Halsey is the artistic name of Ashley Frangipane, a singer and songwriter who has achieved big popularity in the last decade and has won Billboard Music Awards, besides many other awards and uncountable nominations. her style has been described as “Halsey‘s larger-than-life vision combines the synthy darkness of Lorde, the neon-pop chutzpah of Miley Cyrus, and the flickering film noir of Lana Del Rey“. For her latest album, entitled If I Can’t Have Love, I Want Power, and released on August 27, 2021, she made a change of styles, with the songs taking a more rock and industrial touch. Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross, from Nine Inch Nails, have been the producers and co-writers of the new songs.

But the most notorious factor is the appearance of the 53 minutes horror and fantasy film If I Can’t Have Love, I Want Power (2021), featuring the music of the new album. The film has a visual influence on the popular TV series Game of Thrones (2011–2019) and Sofia Coppola’s Marie Antoinette (2006). Colin Tilley, a music videos director who has worked with many stars in the pop, electronic, and R&B industry, has directed the film under a screenplay by Halsey.

The story introduces a young pregnant Queen Lila, as she wrestles with the chokehold of love to ultimately discover that the ability to create life (and end it) unlocks the paranormal power within her. Offering a stunning visual treat for fans, this evocative, horror-tinged fairytale explores the labyrinth of sexuality and birth.

Halsey incarnates Queen Lila in a cast that is completed with Sasha Lane, who has taken part in Hellboy (2019) and Daniel Isn’t Real (2019), Vuk Celebic, Brian Caspe, and a long collection of knights.

If I Can’t Have Love, I Want Power (2021) is Rated R for graphic nudity, some sexual content, violence, and language. The film was screened exclusively for one night, in select IMAX cinema theatres on August 25, 2021, and now is out on HBO Max from October 7, 2021. Here you can watch its official trailer for the digital release.
