Begotten Antichrist: Did Marilyn Manson Synchronize ‘Antichrist Superstar’ To The Movie ‘Begotten’?

Begotten Antichrist - Begotten and Marilyn Manson

Synchronicity is not a recent concept in the realm of pop culture, and has become quite well known with regards to the eerie pairing of The Wizard of Oz and Pink Floyd’s Dark Side of the Moon. A long time ago though, I discovered an even more eerie pairing that synchronized in an unnerving fashion: The film Begotten and Marilyn Manson’s Antichrist Superstar

Long ago, I stumbled across references to a film called Begotten. The images that I had seen online from the movie gave haunting and disturbing impressions. Curious, I began looking into the movie, and eventually watched the film. I was always interested in viewing challenging films, particularly those considered to be within the horror genre.

Walt Disney Studios
Rated PG | Running Time: 130 Minutes
Release Date: June 11, 2013

If you keep up with my reviews, you know that I wrote up a review of the last time I saw this movie, which happened to be in real IMAX 3D, and you can find that review here.

A quick recap of the story, Oz (James Franco, This is the End), finds himself in the land of Oz, where he goes on a journey to prove himself, with some help from a few witches, Theodora (Mila Kunis, Family Guy), Evanora (Rachel Weisz, The Mummy), and of course we can’t forget about Glinda, (Michelle Williams, Dawson’s Creek), who I thought was one of the highlights as far as acting is concerned. And yes Dorothy, cause this is a Sam Raimi (Spider-Man Trilogy) film, be on the lookout for a familiar chin, Bruce Campbell (Evil Dead) has a cameo appearance.

RELEASE DATE: June 11, 2013

When we first heard back in 2010 that a new movie based on the fantastical tale The Wizard of Oz by L. Frank Baum titled Oz the Great and Powerful was on the way with American Beauty and Skyfall director Sam Mendes and Robert Downey Jr. possibly attached, there was certainly intrigue, but there was also a whole lot of question as to the sanity of Disney. 1939’s The Wizard of Oz is a timeless classic, beloved by millions, and despite it being a remake in its own right (see older versions here) the thought of someone even trying to do anything set in the land of Oz seemed absurd. But as I said over three years ago, Baum’s world and characters are eternally ripe for reinterpretation.

Eventually The Evil Dead and Spider-Man director Sam Raimi became attached, then stepped away from the planned World of Warcraft movie to take on Oz. Some complications arose, as is always expected. Downey Jr. was replaced by Johnny Depp for the lead, then James Franco was eventually cast to replace Depp. Obviously things settled down eventually and the movie got made, but does it recapture the same magic that the ’39 classic had, or does it swing and miss?

The Wizard of Oz in 3D is set to arrive in theaters on September 20th, which is in celebration of the original’s 75th anniversary.

Oz The Great and Powerful IMAX 3D

Oz The Great and Powerful
IMAX 3D
Directed by Sam Raimi
Based on the novel, “The Wonderful Wizard of Oz” by L Frank Baum
Starring: James Franco, Mila Kunis, Rachel Weisz, Michelle Williams, Zach Braff, Tony Cox, Bruce Campbell, Joey King
Walt Disney Pictures
Rated PG | 130 Minutes
Release Date: March 8, 2013

It’s time to once again go back to the land of Oz in Oz The Great and Powerful, but this time there is no Dorothy, and we are going to see how it all got started, how the great Oz came to be. But there is a little concern, after the horrible Spider-man 3 movie, can director Sam Raimi gain our trust once again?

You all know the story of Wizard of Oz, and if you don’t, I feel sorry for you. Anyways, like I said, this is a prequel all about the wizard, known here as Oscar “Oz” Diggs and played by James Franco (Spider-man 1-3). Oscar’s not so great and powerful at first; he’s a con artist/magician who just wants to be special or, dare I say, great and powerful. With his faithful (for some reason) assistant Frank, played by Zach Braff (Scrubs), he goes town to town trying to amaze and get rich off the people visiting the circus. And when things seem to be at the lowest, along comes a storm, and Oscar gets caught in a tornado as he is escaping the circus via a hot air balloon. He ends up in the land of Oz, where he is greeted by the lovely Theodora, played by Mila Kunis (That 70’s Show), and she explains the prophecy which involves a great man who is come to save their world. But Oscar seems more interested in her, as he sees himself quite the ladies man, granted it never turns out well, and the same could be said for this situation.
