Shock-rocker Marilyn Manson has been filmed drunkenly falling off stage (on multiple occasions) during his recent tour with Slipknot, making him the butt of quite a few jokes this year. But when it comes to Mason’s acting chops, the unlikely thespian wowed viewers when Let Me Make You a Martyr premiered at the Fantasia Film Festival in Montreal. We’re just getting news that the film was acquired by FilmRise for release on digital platforms in 2017.
Official Synopsis: Let Me Make You A Martyr follows Drew Glass (Niko Nicotera), a young man recently returned to his hometown after years away who crosses paths with his adoptive father, local crime boss Larry Glass (Mark Boone Junior) and reconnects with his adopted sister and love interest June Glass (Sam Quartin). Determined to run away together and escape their complicated past, June and Drew concoct a plan to kill Larry. Unfortunately, Larry finds out about the scheme and hires a hit man of his own (Manson) to resolve the problem.
Let Me Make You a Martyr was written and directed by Corey Asraf and John Swab.
