"The Kill" (written along with the subtitle "Bury Me" in parenthesis on its single release, and with "Rebirth" on the remix's single released in the UK) is a song by 30 Seconds to Mars, the song was released as the second single from their second album, A Beautiful Lie. On May 2, 2010, the song was performed featuring Chino Moreno from Deftones.Being entirely based on the American film The Shining, several scenes are versions from the movie, such as when Shannon Leto enters Room 6277 and encounters the woman in the bathroom, when Matt Wachter being served drinks at the bar by an apparition while both films culminate in an elegant ballroom.
As for the cinematography, Jared Leto has clearly adopted the split screen visual from working with Darren Aronofsky in Requiem for a Dream.
The number 6277 is used for the room number because it spells out "Mars" on a telephone keypad. The number also makes an appearance in the video for "From Yesterday". Keep up with 30 Seconds to Mars here on Muzu!
