Groupie is a partially-lost 1996 short film, created by rock music star Marilyn Manson. Sometime in '96, Marilyn Manson held a house party, which he intended to make a short film out of. He informed the guests that a woman would be arriving, and that he would be filming her.[1]


Groupie begins with a shot of Manson sucking Jeordie "Twiggy" White's (of Manson's band, also called Marilyn Manson) flaccid penis through a condom. The groupie arrives, and is invited inside (Manson has previously implied that she was an actor portraying a fan, and knew roughly what she was in for).

They make her do increasingly perverse things from drinking Stephen Bier's (also of Manson's band) urine, which she does, but only after convincing Manson to also drink it. The rest of the details are relatively unknown, although she is tied up at one point, with bloodshed and a gun supposedly having been involved. The guests at the party were said to have been made uncomfortable by the incident, as they didn't know if it had genuinely happened, or had been previously planned.


Just three people have been known to have ever seen Groupie; Tony Ciulla, Andy Dick, and Marilyn Manson himself. Ciulla begged Manson to prevent the public distribution or public viewing of Groupie, citing fears that it would be considered sufficient evidence to convict Manson if a criminal case was ever brought against him. Dick acknowledges that the participants were enjoying the session at the time of filming, even despite the gruesome subject matter. However, Dick did not deny being disturbed by the film.


The film has never been released, although a few short segments of it appeared at the end of Manson's video album Dead to the World. The segment shows a tied-up woman in a chair, with Manson offscreen. He then intimidates her into repeating the phrase "Jesus loves me because the Bible tells me so". There is currently no other footage of the short film available to the public.
