Controversial Marilyn Manson video features Lana Del Rey rape scene

Lana Del Rey Marilyn Manson

Marilyn Manson has made a career out of making people uncomfortable, but a video he filmed with director Eli Roth (Hostel) proved “so sick, it’s been locked in a vault for over a year,” Roth told Larry King in an interview last year. Now, though, that footage has surfaced online, as Pitchfork points out.

The video features several disturbing scenes, including a bloodied woman submerged in water and a man firing an automatic weapon onto a suburban highway. Most upsetting, however, is a scene which depicts Lana Del Rey being raped.

Update: Manson has denied any involvement in the video. According to an issued statement, “Marilyn Manson did not direct this, shoot it and he’s not even in it. This is not an upcoming Marilyn Manson video of any kind. It must be a fan video splicing up old Manson video footage with someone else’s Lana Del Rey footage.”

Del Rey was romantically linked to Manson several years back.
