"Man That You Fear" is a promotional-only single from Marilyn Manson's second studio album, Antichrist Superstar, and is the final song on the album. It is a very gentle song, comparable to "Coma White" on Mechanical Animals. On the album version, the final two minutes repeat the phrase "When all of your wishes are granted, many of your dreams will be destroyed."

A music video was made for the song where Manson plays a trailer park resident picked at random to be stoned to death (a reference to the Shirley Jackson short story The Lottery).

Music video

In the music video, directed by W.I.Z., Manson portrays a man who is condemned to die. He is "chosen" by a blindfolded child who spins around pointing her finger. When she stops spinning, she removed the blindfold and sees the trailer home that she is pointing to — the home of the condemned. The video features all events of his last day on earth, leading up to his death by stoning in an isolated location of the desert.

The procession into the desert involves various strangely dressed characters, including a child in wearing a mask in the form of a horse's head and a character waving a stick and dancing in circles, which may be references to the 1973 film The Wicker Man, in which the main character is led in a similar procession to be sacrificed.

The procession makes more references to the Alexandro Jodorowsky film Santa Sangre where a funeral takes place and all the characters are pretty much similar to the same characters in the video.
