In 2000, heavy metal superstar, Rob Zombie made an exploitation horror movie entitled House of 1000 Corpses. He struggled to find backing for the film due to the high amounts of gratuitous violence, coarse language and sexual content. This film was finally released to high praise from the heavy metal community in 2003. Zombie created a slew of great characters and eventually created a sequel entitled The Devil’s Rejects which was released to even higher praise than the previous film. There was even an independent campaign to get Bill Moseley, one of the film’s main stars, an Oscar nomination. Why am I telling you this? The reason I am telling you this is that I believe that someone who became a star in one art form can always shine in another. The reason I am talking about this is that I read a few weeks ago that Marilyn Manson, the singer best known for his satanic odes and haunting ballads, would be directing, writing, composing and starring in a film called Phantasmagoria: The Visions of Lewis Carroll. If you don’t know who Lewis Carroll is, then I will give you a rundown. Lewis Carroll was a children’s author who wrote such classic stories as Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland and Through The Looking Glass. These stories have been put onto the big screen in films and stage. Carroll was also known as a disturbed and insane man. He was rumored to have been a prime supporter of p*******a.¬† Carroll was known to be dark and disturbed man. This apparently fascinates Manson and I can see why. Manson would like to paint a portrait of a man who had problems and was deeply scarred.
