Shock rocker Marilyn Manson gained notoriety for being controversial in his music and overall image over the years, but some fans accused the artist for getting soft in recent memory. Well, those fans can STFU after watching the latest video for "Born Villain", the title track from Manson's upcoming album due out this fall. You can watch the clip after the jump, but oh is it so NSFW or your parents.

Directed by Transformers star Shia LaBeouf, the music video/short film has a very dark tone, starting with two nude women looking downright scary and getting their hair cut off. The next scene shows an elderly man watching TV with a creepy looking kid sitting next to him. The old man is apparently a sick freak and forces himself on the child.

Other wicked scenes include people getting shot, punctured and maimed, all for the sake of twisted pleasure. It's hard to believe LaBeouf was behind the helm for this project, but apparently he always had a fascination with Manson.

"Marilyn Manson to me is an indelible figure," LaBeouf told MTV News (via Kerrang!). "He's a big deal to me, and in my childhood, I don't know of a scarier figure in art. He, in my teenage years, was the scariest thing in the world, so part of me has always been intrigued."

"I love Marilyn," he adds. "Manson is like a brother to me now. He's a real sweet dude, a real close friend."

On the concept of "Born Villain", the actor/director explains it "has all these references to Macbeth and all this Shakespeare and heavy theology, so we tried to make Manson's Un Chien Andalou macabre Macbeth - that's sort of what that [video] became."
