1. A sickly porn star in Lost Highway (1997) by David Lynch
The singer’s eccentric get-up already makes him an iconographic curiosity. But a fleeting appearance in David Lynch’s packed gallery of monsters, saw Marilyn Manson embody a porn star in his first movie role. Covered in make-up with towering hair, he stands beside Twiggy Ramirez, in what is more a cameo than anything else. Marilyn Manson blends perfectly into the frightening atmosphere of this dark story that explores the duel personality of Fred Madison, a saxophonist whose jealousy leads him to murder. The film soundtrack features the singer’s major hits as well as his own version of the song I put a spell on you by Screamin’ Jay Hawkins.
