One of the most lauded films to emerge from last week’s Fantasia Film Festival in Montreal last week is Let Me Make You a Martyr, written and directed by Corey Asraf and John Swab. The film stars shock-rocker Marilyn Manson in his first lead role in a feature film.
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.
In addition to the festival trailer above, Deadline just released exclusive poster art this morning; check it out below.
No word yet on when and how Let Me Make You a Martyr will reach audiences, but we’ll keep you posted as details emerge.
