It’s understandable why. After all, if you’re going to have a song named “Dark Horse,” there’s bound to be some gothic imagery, an evil witch and a horse that’s actually hiding Juicy J. Disney might’ve found its Evil Queen for a live version of their Disney classic, but what other movies might Katy Perry have taken inspiration from? We take some guesses:
“The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers”
Those moving trees? People adorned in black? Those flames? 100 percent “Lord of the Rings.”
That final part where Katy Perry is surrounded by fire has “Silent Hill” written all over it. (Yes, we’ve already mentioned the flames but, whatever.) Or, you know, any movie that’s inspired by the Salem Witch Trials.
It’s not out yet, but maybe Katy Perry saw the preview and thought, “Wow. I need to be Maleficent.”
Katy Perry would’ve made a great Nancy. The attitude, the having people carry her — the world needs a “The Craft” remake now.
