“Let Me Make You a Martyr,” an indie-film crime drama starring Marilyn Manson that was shot in the Tulsa area, is coming to Circle Cinema for its opening weekend.

Tickets are on sale for a May 25 premiere night at which John Swab, a former Tulsan and Edison High School graduate who wrote and co-directed the picture, will speak to the audience, along with co-director Corey Asraf.

Their tough-minded revenge drama, in which a pair of adopted siblings fall in love and plot to murder their abusive dad, will show at 7 p.m. May 25, and tickets are available at or at the theater, 10 S. Lewis Ave.

The screening will be followed by a question-and-answer session with the filmmakers.

“Let Me Make You a Martyr” features shock-rocker Manson as a reclusive hit man and Mark Boone Junior, a longtime “Sons of Anarchy” star, as the father who hires him.

The film was shot in rural areas of Claremore, Tulsa and Sand Springs in the spring of 2015, and it has shown at film festivals.

“Let Me Make You a Martyr” received support from the Oklahoma Film & Music Office, and it was one of the first to collaborate with the Tulsa Film, Music, Arts & Culture office, which operates out of the Tulsa Metro Chamber.
