Marilyn Manson and Evan Rachel Wood are ‘Splatter Sisters’
Veteran producer, Edward R. Pressman (whose IMDb page claims he is working on a re-make of The Crow) is joining forces with David Gordon Green to produce a new slasher film called Splatter Sisters. Actually, according to writer Adam Bhala Lough, it falls more into the “sexploitation-serial-killer-slasher-road-movie” genre. Uh. Okay? Lough also claims that Splatter Sisters could start a new subgenre called “Skinemax Cinema.” Is it me, or does this have ‘softcore’ written all over it?
Here’s a little bit more evidence for you. The movie is slated to star real-life couple (or are they this week?)
Marilyn Manson and Evan Rachel Wood (Across the Universe). The couple appeared together on screen once before in a music video of Manson‘s called “Heart Shaped Glasses (When the Heart Guides the Hand),” where Wood shows up as a Lolita type character and they have quite a realistic love scene together. So realistic that it was rumored to be real. The video’s below, so judge for yourself. I think the music video is “horror flick” enough.
So anyway, Splatter Sisters is supposed to change the world, or at least the entire slasher film genre, according to these dudes. “his is a role Marilyn Manson was born to play, and with Evan Rachel Wood bringing dramatic gravity to the ensemble, I have no doubt this will take the horror genre to a new level,” Green says. And Pressman adds, “Lough‘s unique talent and energy will make Splatter Sisters a very special and markedly commercial film. I’ve always been attracted to smart movies about killers made by directors with a real vision.”
Video below of Marilyn Manson‘s video, starring Evan Rachel Wood. What do you think of their on screen chemistry, and will it translate to the big screen? WARNING: VIDEO IS NOT SAFE FOR WORK! Seriously.
