Kurt's Bloody Suicide is the unofficial name given to a short homemade shot-on-Super 8 horror film made by Nirvana front man Kurt Cobain and bassist Krist Novoselic in 1984 in their hometown of Aberdeen, WA.[1]

The short film has been circulating among Nirvana fans before making its way onto the internet and the film was recently featured in the 2014 documentary Cobain: Montage of Heck. The film is under 10 mins long and has no narrative but is rather a montage of odd and creepy visuals such as Krist Novoselic shirtless in the middle of pentagram with a Mr. T mask, Kurt Cobain stabbing a dog, and a scene of Kurt Cobain cutting and stabbing himself with a knife: this scene is where the video gets its name.

On August 23rd, 2013, YouTuber "Curmodgeon NIRVANA" has found a copy of the film and uploaded it to their YouTube channel.
