If you’re a fan of rock bands such as TOOL and Interpol, then you probably heard about Marilyn Manson, if not, allow me to elaborate. Marylin Manson (or by his real name, Brian Hugh Warner) is a rock singer known for his controversial stage personality and image as the lead singer of the band. his stage name was formed by combining and juxtaposing the names of two American pop cultural icons of the 1960's actress, Marilyn Monroe and criminal, Charles Manson.
Amidst the controversy, Manson was accused of having a bad influence on his young adult listeners by both parents and the media who even went as far to blame him for the Columbine High School Massacre that occurred in 1999, though he denied allegations that his music was one of Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold’s contributory motives.
Now believe it or not, he made an independent short film around 1996 called Groupie which was never released due to Marilyn’s manager, Tony Ciulla begging him to prevent the public from distributing or viewing Groupie, citing fears that it would be considered sufficient evidence to convict Manson of a criminal case if it was ever brought up against him. Dick also acknowledged that the participants were enjoying the session at the time of filming the gruesome subject matter. However, Dick did not deny being disturbed by the film.
Surprisingly, the film was recorded at an actual house party that Manson was hosting and involved a stooge actress portraying a young groupie being made to do more and more perverse and disturbing things in front of Manson's unknowing guests who were only told that a woman would be arriving and that he would be filming her. Despite not being released to the local public, a few short segments of the film appeared at the end of Manson's video album Dead to the World.
The film begins with a shot of Manson giving his band mate, Jeordie “Twiggy” White fellatio through a condom at Marilyn's house party. Shortly after that, the groupie arrives at the door, brandishing a piece of artwork as a gift and is invited inside. It is here where things escalate in an extremely disturbing manner, Marilyn pressures the groupie into drinking his band mate, Stephen 'Madonna Wayne Gacy' Bier's urine from a wine glass to which she eventually does, but only after convincing Manson to participate as well. The remainder of the short’s contents has not been made entirely clear but it has been revealed that the groupie is at one point tied up, with a gun is introduced into the situation by Manson, a fight breaks out, and blood is shed.
Many of Manson’s party guests are said to have come away from the experience very shaken up, not knowing whether or not what the event between Marilyn and the groupie was legitimate or staged, though it has been suggested that the film consists of both legitimate and staged events and that the actress portraying the groupie may not have been given all of the details of the event prior to its occurrence, despite being somewhat in the know.
Only three people are confirmed to have seen the short; Manson himself, Andy Dick (comedian friend of Manson's), and Manson's manager, Tony Ciulla, the former two of whom discussed the short on a 2002 episode of Dinner for Five. After viewing the film, Tony implored Manson to hide the masters, believing that if it were to be released, Manson would likely go to jail and/or end his career because people would believe that Manson actually committed sexual abuse in the short.
