Peep the wicked teaser for Marilyn Manson’s new thriller ‘Let Me Make You A Martyr‘
The perfect role for the God of Fuck.
Manson plays a hired gun who sings eerie hymns and gospel songs on his way to murder, murder, murder, kill, kill, kill in ‘Let Me Make You A Martyr’, a revenge tale like no other.
Marilyn Manson takes us on an excursion into the heart of darkness in ‘Let Me Make You A Martyr’. Written and co-directed by John Swab and Corey Asraf, the film follows the God of Fuck as Pope, a brazen hit-man on a mission to snuff out avenging hellions in the form of a bro and sis tag team (who have schemed to kill their malevolent father). A deadpan sociopath with a double chin and cheesy glasses, Pope is stylistically perverse and cool as a cucumber. Crowdfunded by Kickstarter and crackling with cool camera work and decent sound design, the film (in development for over a year now) is an eye-popping picture forged in the crucible of blood and bitterness and featuring Mark Boone Junior, Niko Nicotera and Slaine.
John and Corey explained the genesis of the revenge thriller like this: “We set out to tell a story that was true to us and our struggles with addiction and abuse. After a decade of dreaming and never giving up, we are thrilled to finally share this film with the world.” The swashbuckling shock rocker, who has amply demonstrated his acting prowess in shows like Eastbound and Down, Californication and Sons of Anarchy, said this about the project and his involvement: “Within the first day, I was asked if I wanted to skin a coyote. It was already dead. And I was asked to burn down a house and ‘kill’ a bunch of people, so the answer was obviously yes,” he said. “I am part Indian in the film – I play a Native American. I really didn’t have to change too much about myself physically. I had just shaved my hair into a mohawk so it was pretty easy to look the part.”
The epic American nightmare, with its pictorial, pulp-y and sinister sweep, will be released this June in cinemas and on VOD. [Sunset 5 Cinema in Los Angeles on June 5th]. We can’t wait! Check out the trailers below.
