MARILYN MANSON has unveiled his plans to move into film-making with his own genre of ‘horripilation’.
The singer has announced that he is now going to concentrate his efforts into producing short films, which will be released through his official website [url=]marilynmanson.com.
He explained: “The other night I took an eighty-year-old taxidermied monkey, set it on fire in the pool and filmed it from beneath with an underwater camera. It was beautiful, like the Titanic, the Hindenburg and King Kong all mixed into one.”
The self-proclaimed ’God Of Fuck’ said: “I no longer want to make art that other people – particularly record companies -are turning into a product. I just want to make art.”
Creating his own genre for his work, ‘horripilation’, the star described it saying: “It’s horrifying, and it’s depilatory. It will horrify the hair off of your legs.”
The first set of films will be the four part ’Fantasma Gloria’.
“It’s the visions of Lewis Carroll – in fact I’m playing Carroll”, Manson told Rolling Stone.
In the first instalment, the singer explores the origin of ’Alice In Wonderland’’s Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dum.
He said: “I might add that the girls playing Tweedle Dee and Dum are twins who get to have real, genuine sex with each other. I like to make dreams come true.”
Manson is also set to open an art gallery in Los Angeles, publish a book of paintings, plans to convert his basement wine cellar into an opium den as “I don’t drink wine” before appearing opposite film star Lucy Liu in a cameo role for the upcoming movie ’Rise’.
However, the controversial artist has not turned his back on music completely, and has completed 18 new songs.
He said: “It’s not like I’m going to stop making music and start knitting. I just don’t think the world is worth putting the music into right now. First we’re going to fix the world with horripilation.”
