Attention angsty alt-rockers: Are you and your gal pal tired of the dinner-and-a movie routine? Looking for something different to spice things up? Well this season, treat that special someone to the hottest new goth-dustrial date: Filming gruesome murder scenes.
Last week we saw Trent Reznor and his wife meet a bloody end in the new How to Destroy Angels video. Now Variety reports that Marilyn Manson will star in upcoming film Splatter Sisters with fiancée Evan Rachel Wood. As you might guess from the title, this isn’t the latest Woody Allen rom-com. The announcement describes it as a “sexploitation-serial-killer-slasher-road-movie circa 1989,” which sounds like a typical day for Manson.
David Gordon Green (Pineapple Express) produces the project, the first in a planned franchise. “This is a role Marilyn Manson was born to play, and with Evan Rachel Wood bringing dramatic gravity to the ensemble, I have no doubt this will take the horror genre to a new level,” Green said.
“Dramatic gravity” or not, nothing says romance like getting your eyes carved out with a rusty hatchet. Your move, Maynard.
