phantasmagoria

Post by junkie christ »

i carry a copy of the collected Carroll Alice stories in my car.
I think ive read thru the shit about a few hundred times at this point
i am huge fan.

but theres alot of shitty Alice art flicks.
BUT........ i think this ones in good hands.
why? its about the diarys of lewis carrol and how he connected to the artistic creations. his link to childhood (not just pedophilia).
ok say what you want against manson (i sure as hell do) but the man knows his shit.

http://www.phantasmagoriamovie.com/ (changes every few days with images of the movie)

http://news.yahoo.com/s/afp/20060212/en ... 0212193412 has a good article too.

Image
hes doing Carroll, a child model named lily cole is doing alice, and his interperations of the characters are pretty damn close to what they look like when most of us from the deviant art community (and i dont mean the website) view it as.
a friend of mine send me an email with a collection of stuff on it.
here ya go.

In the Summer of 2005 Manson stated in interviews a few hints in regard to Phantasmagoria including that the film would explore the origins of Tweedle Dee & Tweedle Dum and that "I might add that the girls playing Tweedle Dee and Dum are twins who get to have real, genuine sex with each other. I like to make dreams come true,"

"Later, I can update you on the process of how it's going to be filmed because it's going to be done in a way that no one has done yet. I have a camera that I'll be the first person to use in cinema, and I'm very excited about it. It's very unique. I want to bring back the experiments in terror, which is actually a DVD that documents the attempts of 1944 filmmakers to insert subliminal elements. Whether in sound or in frames of the film, to enhance whatever tense or fear they're looking to create at that moment in the film. I think technology allows me to go much further than that. I'm going to do a lot of things that may end up being illegal. Until they are, I will do them. I think it will change people's opinion about horror films and they will realize they're not all about slasher."


should be entertaining.
the rest of the mailer is all the numerology, berlin, and Alchemic meanings behind some costumes theyve shown.
As a big fan of all three areas, i gotta say they are tied in well and very very accurate.

ive always said that carroll was an excellent example of how what at one time is viewed as perversion can later be hailed as required or criticial. Now even if this movie tanks, id say it will do well to uncover that, and the other basis of character are some of my favorite topics of research as well.... so im biased when i say im excited. but im excited.

summer 2007
*edit, sites moving, had to take pics down. ill put em back up, but they are just still from the flash animation on the website link*

Cannot wait for this! Recent news explains that the Red Queen will be played by Angelina Jolie, whom Manson payed with paintings he did of her with her kids. (And she will make a kick ass Queen) I'm interested as to what sort of camera technology that he will be using. He's definitely keeping it a bit mysterious, and it is said the first place we shall be able to view the film is by downloading it off of his website. Finally, his directing/acting debut!

Well, since she IS pregnant, she may back out. And she is due in May, so I suppose we'll have to wait and see...
