Even knowing that Marilyn Manson stars in the film “Let Me Make You a Martyr” doesn’t prepare you for the person you’re going to see in the film. Without the over-the-top costumes and makeup, Manson looks almost unrecognizable as he plays a hitman in the film. In the first trailer, he will definitely creep you out.
The trailer isn’t so much a trailer as it is a quick scene from the film. Manson is seen sitting in the passenger seat of a car telling a story about how his father has killed a man. He goes into singing a gospel song with a gun in his hand, as the driver silently drives. Without seeing the context of the clip, or knowing anything else about the film, immediately we’re all intrigued, and honestly quite curious about how this came about.
“Let Me Make You a Martyr” stars Manson alongside Mark Boone Junior, Sam Quartin, Niko Nicotera, Michael Potts, and Slaine. The film is written and directed by the team of John Swab and Corey Asraf.
“Let Me Make You a Martyr” is set to have a limited run in theaters beginning May 25 before it makes it’s VOD debut June 9. [AV Club]
