Gothic rocker Marilyn Manson is planning world domination with his macabre new art form - "horripilation".

The SWEET DREAMS star is temporarily turning away from music to concentrate on his mysterious new venture, which includes a bizarre series of short films released via his website. He warns anyone with a nervous disposition to steer clear.

Manson explains, "I no longer want to make art that other people - particularly record companies - are turning into a product.

"I just want to make art - horripilation. It's horrifying, and it's depilatory. It will horrify the hair off of your legs.

"It's not like I'm going to stop making music and start knitting. We're gonna fix the world with horripilation."
