Originally announced back in 2004 and entering pre-production through 2005 was Marilyn Manson’s Phantasmagoria: The Visions Of Lewis Carroll, which was being pre-sold by Wild Bunch at various markets across the world. Back in 2006 a promo trailer was shot to help sell the film and is just now seeing the light of day! Check it out below. According to our tipster ‘Necroskinless’, 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. Here was the plot crunch: 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. Check out the promo below.
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.
