Marilyn Manson’s ‘Phantasmagoria’ Is Filming!

Screen shot 2014-02-06 at 2.08.50 PM

Wow, I can’t even believe I’m reporting this but, after several long years, Marilyn Manson‘s long gestured Phantasmagoria: The Visions of Lewis Carroll is actually filming!

While there are no other casting details at this time, Manson himself tweeted that he will be playing Lewis Carroll in the film based on his own screenplay.

Lily Cole, Tilda Swinton and Evan Rachel Wood were all once attached. Anthony Silva co-wrote the screenplay.

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.

    Remember checking daily for news on this project almost 10 years ago. Can even remember Mansons cryptic website for it. Now that it might in fact FINALLY go ahead and come to fruition, I can’t help but feel very ‘meh’ about it. It kinda has this vibe around it that the ship has unfortunately sailed in the timing department… hopefully able to get back that excitement as more develops but I aint holding my breath

    I just realized that is Lilly Cole in that old teaser trailer!

    Is it actually filming, or just “in production” as Manson’s tweet says? I’ll believe it when I actually see it.

    I hope there is less hand held camera.

    Very very interesting in this but… I think MM has lost his touch the last couple of years (and inspiration too). If he would have started let’s say around 2000-2005 it would have been great to see what he can bring on the table. But after boring performances and records…I really hope he can find an andrenaline shot even through this film. Having said that, of course I will watch this! Who knows? I hope he does not hold back

    agreed, I can’t help but worry that he’s lost some of the energy he had half a decade ago. I’ve been waiting for phantasmagoria for a while, and at this point even I’ve kind of lost interest. He needs to find something to fan the flames of this a little.

    I was so excited for this when I first heard about it and that was so long ago. I am still somewhat excited but like others were saying it does feel as if Manson has been somewhat uninspired lately. Hopefully this will turn that around.

    OH IM SO EXCITED!!! I feel like its been decades. when I heard about the talk of this movie I almost pee-ed myself I was so excited, Im glad it is back in production.

    WHAT!!?? Omg I was disappointed when this project was cancelled, its so exciting to hear its back up again! Although I wonder how the casting is going to work out and if the same people are still going to be in it.

    The main point I want to make is well, I don’t know. It could be great, or it could really suck. Either way it will be interesting to look at. His music catalog can be summed up in one word. ‘Sucks!’. Granted he has about a handful of good songs here, and there. Time will tell.
