Dead to the World was released on February 10, 1998 on VHS, documenting the infamous tour of the same name by Marilyn Manson. It contains primarily live performances but delves into backstage and archival footage of the band.

Notable features are: extensive protests by right-wing Christian groups; spoken relations of meaning and intent by Manson himself; and the brutal, immense theatrics presented by the band in the live setting. Based from Antichrist Superstar, this video features six songs from the album as well as hits from earlier releases Portrait of an American Family and Smells Like Children. Naturally this tour reflected the album it was built upon - Manson's criticisms of organized religion in this video and otherwise are ironically proven in the very actions of the people featured protesting his credibility.

Society has traditionally always tried to find a scapegoat for its problems. Well, here I am.

Marilyn Manson, October 1996

The controversial events from the Antichrist Superstar tour serve as the backdrop for this amazing document, all as seen through the video eye of the band's own cameraman. The picketing zealots, the fulminating moralists, the disingenuous politicians, the tens of thousands who came to see for themselves and, of course, gazing outward from the very heart of the storm, Manson himself. One hour of live concert performances intercut with behind the scene and backstage footage that will help you to understand what it must have been like to be at the center of these extraordinary occurrences.[MM]
