Phantasmagoria: The Visions Of Lewis Carroll. This film is under the work’s since 2004. No wonder it didn’t sell back then, from what I saw from the trailer, the film is gonna be really weird. Manson has recently talked about returning to the project he abandoned four years ago. Lily Cole was originally cast as Alice, alongside Tilda Swinton and Evan Rachel Wood. Lily Cole is great, you might recognize her from Heath Ledger‘s last film The Imaginarium Of Doctor Parnassus.

The plot of the film: 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.

As for the trailer, what I saw was a pornographic video with quick-cuts and blood with cool music and some really weirdness in it(I know I sound dumb). But I will definitely watch this film no matter what I think about it. As for one, Marilyn Manson is really good when it comes to music and I like his theatricality. Maybe a kick-ass soundtrack!?

According to Marilyn-Manson.net, “This teaser also features real-life twin sisters engaging in questionable acts and burlesque superstar Dita Von Teese in artistic, full-nude. The figure in the medical mask is artist Gottfried Helnwein and the bird-face masked character and white gloved Lewis Carroll impresario, is Marilyn Manson.”

Check it out and what do ya think?
