Movie News: Did anyone want to see a feature-length Marilyn Manson video anyway?

Who knew?  Apparently Marilyn Manson has been working on a biopic about the life of Lewis Carroll.  It was supposed to be called Phantasmagoria, and apparently has been in the works for quite some time.  Not suprisingly, it was to star Manson himself, his current gal pal Evan Rachel Wood, Lily Cole, and Tilda Swinton. 

However, a bunch of people peeped the trailer and were like no. freakin. way. dude.  I saw it myself, and I don't know what sort of movie it was supposed to be.  It just looked like a mash-up of a bunch of Marilyn Manson videos.  Apparently, he was looking for an Alice in Wonderland vibe, but the whole thing just looked like shitshow to me.

Anyway, after the extremely negative reaction to all the violence and sex in the trailer, the production company was just not having it.  They shut the whole thing down, and it's likely to never see the light of day.  I say, good riddance.  Marilyn Manson annoys the crap out of me.

They shut it down? Oh, thank goodness! I'd been hearing about this for years, actually (think I first read about it in an issue of Rolling Stone) and I was horrified by the idea.
