Marilyn Manson Drops Short Film ‘Born Villain’ Directed By Shia LaBeouf

Marilyn Manson has long been synonymous with dark and graphic visual imagery. His new Shia LaBeouf directed short film ‘Born Villain’ even pushes the boundaries of weirdness for Manson.

The unlikely pairing of Marilyn Manson and Transformer-boy Shia LaBeouf was one we expected to yield a commercially friendly product — we’ve never been more wrong. The 6 and half minute short, originally believed to be a documentary,  features the new single from Manson’s upcoming album.  Antiquiet reports that LaBeouf drew his inspiration from a theatrical legend:

“The song has all these references to ‘Macbeth’ and all this Shakespeare and heavy theology, so we tried to make Manson’s ‘Un Chien Andalou’ macabre ‘Macbeth’ — that’s sort of what that became.”

You could’ve put “macabre” in all caps — this Kubrickian video features some of Manson’s darkest imagery yet. Ingredients include an abundance of full-frontal nudity, people getting their brains blown out, and a particularly uncomfortable scene involving a woman’s cheek and a needle.

You can check out the song below, but for the incredibly NSFW video click here.
