See Marilyn Manson, or Possibly the Nerd from ‘Wonder Years’, in the ‘Let Me Make You a Martyr’ Trailer

It’s the trailer parents of the late ’90s don’t want you to see: Marilyn Manson as a killer in Let Me Make You a Martyr. The A.V. Club just debuted this theatrical trailer for the film, which comes from first-time feature writer-directors John Swab and Corey Asraf. It’s said the quite ’70s-inspired thriller sees Manson as “a Native American hit man hired by the dad to take out his rebellious son.” But I also heard that, to prepare for the role, Manson totally removed a rib. Fuckin’ crazy, right?

Let Me Make You a Martyr is slowly rolling out screenings over the next few months. Here’s the current schedule:

May 25—Tulsa, OK—Circle Cinema (w/ directors John Swab/Corey Asraf and actor Sam Quartin)

May 27—Austin, TX—Alamo Drafthouse (w/ directors John Swab/Corey Asraf and actor Sam Quartin)

June 5—Los Angeles, CA—Sunset 5 Cinemas (w/ actors Mark Boone Junior, Slaine, Niko Nicotera, Sam Quartin)

June 9—Brooklyn, NY—Anthology Film Archives (w/ actors Michael Potts, Gore Abrams, and Sam Quartin)

    “Manson’s performance will leave people talking…” is some very high quality ambiguity.

    • Much like the “leave people talking” quality of his music.

        “Manson’s contribution to the film is immeasurable.”
