Leaked Marilyn Manson video depicts Lana Del Rey rape scene

Director Eli Roth said the unreleased footage had been ‘locked in a vault for over a year’

UPDATE: Kathryn Frazier of Biz3, a spokesperson for Marilyn Manson, has told Pitchfork that Manson had nothing to do with the Lana Del Rey scenes. "Manson did not direct this, shoot it, nor was it for a Marilyn Manson video or outtake footage made by him or to be used by him with his music. It must be a fan video splicing up old Manson video footage with someone else's Lana Del Rey footage." The video has now also been taken down but if you missed it, read a description below.

Footage from an unreleased Marilyn Manson music video starring Lana Del Rey has leaked online, featuring a scene in which the Ultraviolence singer is sexually assaulted. Directed by Hostel filmmaker Eli Roth, Sturmgruppe also depicts disturbing clips of a bloodied woman being held underwater, two young girls destroying a family kitchen as Manson looks on, and a masked sniper aiming an AK-47 at a busy public street. 

The 27-second scene shows Roth pushing a screaming Del Rey onto a bed and assaulting her, closing on a shot of her tear-streaked face. And just in case you didn't get the message, a later part of the video shows a macabre birthday party featuring balloons with "RAPE" written on them. 

The footage was shot last year but was never seen. In an interview with Larry King, Roth said that the video had been canned. "The footage is so sick, it's been locked in a vault for over a year," he explained. 

You can watch the clip below, but you know, obvious trigger warning for graphic sexual assault:
