Watch out Zombie Strippers, Murderous Rampage has just released a video for their song "Programmed to Kill." And the topless zombie chicks are way more brutal than Jenna Jameson (no matter how much Nietzsche she reads). They don't strip, they just want to kill you.

Or maybe just kill their creator (think The Terminator), played by MR frontman and horror aficionado Tommy Newman. The "Programmed to Kill" video starts off with a sleepy Newman dozing off amid his many life-size zombie mannequins. (Creating the undead mannequins is actually a real-life hobby of Newman's. He has them throughout his house). The protagonist dreams he's being chased by three of his bloody, half-naked, come-to-life creations, and therefore attempts to flee. But the zombies are just too damn clever. Not-much-of-a-spoiler alert: There's a shower scene!

Pushed on by fist-pumping choruses, gutteral, shouting vocals, straight metal riffs, special effects, and the never-satisfied thirst of the undead, Murderous Rampage's video for "Programmed to Kill" is as brutal and artful as you can get on no budget. Another fun fact: The make-up took over 3 hours. (Though they must have saved time on costuming, the zombie women don't have much of a wardrobe!)

See the video after the jump.

Murderous Rampage play November 5 at Pulp Live (the old Metal Factory) with hardcore punk band Flees. Admission is 18 and up and costs $4.
