Video reviews:

Marilyn Manson, Every Dad's Worst Nightmare

Marilyn Manson decided to premiere his new video on the Web, and after watching it's easy to see why. This is one clip that definitely falls under the "Not Safe for Kids" category. Just like Mr. Manson.

The video for the single "Heart Shaped Glasses," stars Manson and his new squeeze, 19-year-old actress Evan Rachel Wood. And they are getting it on, I mean really getting it on. (The camera never ventures below the waist, but Wood's screams seem rather, um, genuine.) The eight-minute clip made its world premiere on the German Web site Sevenload on Tuesday.

Aside from the shock value of simulated sex (some of which features the two lovebirds drenched in blood), the clip certainly has some aesthetic merit, featuring rich, red visuals and a Lynchian tone -- think of it as a homage to hearts: Wild at Heart, Angel Heart, and Lolita. Ms. Wood's heart-shaped glasses of the title are an obvious homage to Mr. Nabokov.

Then again, many will come away thinking it's just cheap shlock.

Whatever your opinion, you'll probably agree that Ms. Wood's days as a cherubic Hollywood teen are certainly in the rearview mirror.

Marilyn Manson, Ever Dad's Worst Nightmare

Manson romps with teen lover in new video

Marilyn Manson's new music video looks set to cause a stir with graphic sex scenes of the shock rocker romping with his new teenage girlfriend Evan Rachel Wood.

Actress Evan Rachel, 19, appears to climax in a provocative opening sequence as Marilyn, real name Brian Warner, passionately kisses and caresses the actress.

The video, for the rocker's new single Heart-Shaped Glasses, begins with something of an understatement as a warning flashes up that the video might not be appropriate for people under the age of 16.

The steamy action continues with the couple taking a drive in a convertible.

While Marilyn takes candid shots of the Evan Rachel, the actress is seen caressing and kissing a carving knife.

Cue more writhing around on a bed, this time with some fake blood smeared around, before the video ends Thelma and Louise-style with the odd couple driving their flame-engulfed car off the road high above Hollywood.

Evan Rachel is no stranger to controversy herself, having starred in 2003 movie Thirteen, in which she played a 13-year-old savouring the allure of a sex, drugs and rock'n'roll lifestyle.

Marilyn has said in various interviews that his upcoming album Eat Me, Drink Me (due to be released this summer 2007) was inspired by his private problems after his break-up with former wife Dita Von Teese.

The video is being promoted on his website:

A spokeswoman for the video distribution said edited versions of the video are being worked on to make it 'more appropriate' for commercial TV channels.
