What the Hell Happened with This Marilyn Manson Video?

What’s with the rape porn footage of Lana Del Rey in this Marilyn Manson video? Manson’s people say they had nothing to do with it.  The leaked footage shows Lana getting violently raped and was directed by Eli Roth, the same guy behind Hostel.

Stereogum reports:

The video, titled “Sturmgruppe 2013 Reel” (Sturmgruppe is an L.A. digital arts group), shows a freakish dinner party, an indiscriminate highway shooting, and, in a particularly nasty moment, Roth himself raping Lana Del Rey. During an interview with Larry King last year, Roth said that the footage was “so sick it’s been locked in a vault for a year.”

The full video is still locked away somewhere, but if you want to watch it the leaked stuff you can, go here. But you’ll hate yourself.
