Horrible re-telling of the Charles manson murders
6 August 2002 | by (Lancaster, California) – See all my reviews

Horrible re-telling of the infamous Charles Manson murders in Beverly Hills, California. Made in a style that Charles Manson and the others would appreciate. I would also say this film was made as if through the eyes of Manson himself. However, if you are curious to see a chilling, gruesome dramatization of the murders (that in real-life included the pregnant actress, Sharon Tate , who was in the tv-series Beverly Hillbillies), this filming is perhaps too realistic. This film contains use of drugs, poppers, full frontal male and female nudity and sexual situations.

If you are looking for a serious, dramatic telling of the real-life story, beginning with the murders, the capture, and the ending of the final trial, then may I suggest "Helter Skelter" (1976). This was a television movie originally shown in two-parts, starring Steve Railsback as "Manson" and George DiCenzo as D.A. Vincent Bugliosi.
