"(Waiting for the) Night Boat" (directed by Russell Mulcahy:

The album track "Night Boat" was a spooky, atmospheric piece to begin with, and the video became a mini-horror film shot on the Caribbean island of Antigua. A brief bit of dialogue before the music starts includes Le Bon's recitation of one of Mercutio's speeches from Romeo and Juliet. Band members gather in a small beach village as the sun is setting, only to be separated and set upon by zombies one by one, until the ragged Nightboat arrives to carry Le Bon away. It is possible that this video is a homage to the Italian horror film Zombi 2, with settings and zombies which look very much like those in the film. This video was filmed in May of 1982, several months before Michael Jackson began working on the video "Thriller", which also featured zombies.
