Caveman Torture Julia Stiles in Hostile 'In the City' Video

New York City-set clip confirms tourists' worst fears

Caveman's "In the City" served as a dreamy introduction to the New York quintet's self-titled sophomore album, but the single's freshly dropped video is the stuff of nightmares. The mini-horror movie, directed by Philip Di Fiore, stars Julia Stiles and Franz Kranz as a couple visiting the Big Apple. They take in the sights — Central Park, Times Square, etc. — and then head back to their hotel, completely unaware that there's a knife-wielding bellhop (played by Michael Cavadias) hiding in the room, waiting for them to fall asleep. Can't imagine the New York City Tourism Bureau is very pleased.
