Hey, remember once a long time ago Marilyn Manson was going to make a movie called "Phantasmagoria: The Visions Of Lewis Carroll"? Well, that was about five years ago, and we'll forgive you for not remembering. Apparently, the film was being repped by Wild Bunch back in 2005 who were trying to pre-sell the picture in various markets and a teaser trailer was even cut in 2006 but never saw the light of day. Until now.
The teaser spot features some brutally awful voiceover work from Brian Warner and has a lot of amateur hour spookiness and gratuitous nudity. Lily Cole ("The Imaginarium Of Doctor Parnassus") (who was originally cast along side Tilda Swinton and Evan Rachel Wood), Dita Von Teese and some twins feature in the teaser that is pretty cornball goth stuff. Obviously with nudity and blood, its NSFW. Apparently, Manson wants to get this film back in production but likelihood of that happening is about as remote as "King Shot," his once rumored film with Alejandro Jodorowsky going in front of cameras.
Here's a very loose synopsis from Bloody Disgusting. Teaser below:
Victorian England. A haunted writer in an isolated castle is tormented by sleepless nights and visions of a girl named Alice. He finds himself becoming a symptom of his own invention. “Now all my nightmares know my name.” He is Lewis Carroll. Terrified of what waits for him each night.
