While I agree 100% with the other reviewer that "The Manson Massacre", German-language dubbing and all, plays fast and loose with the facts surrounding the actual Manson murder case, I think we have to keep in mind that this film is nothing more than brazen exploitation and was not intended to be a serious telling of the Manson story ("The Helter Skelter Murders" and, of course, "Helter Skelter" are much more factually accurate, at least in regard to what has been made public. How interesting it would be if a film could be made about all the other activities of the Manson Family that are not as well known as the Tate crimes).
"Manson Massacre", like "Sweet Savior", aka "The Love Thrill Murders", portrays the victims of the mass murder as druggie, sex-crazed swingers who bring about their doom by inviting these weirdos into their home in the first place. In a very limited sense, this may not be far off from the truth, because some officials claim that at least two of the Manson Family killers had been in the Tate home many months before the killings, but in reality this was before Ms. Tate moved in. This exploitation film should be taken only for what it is: lurid junk. However, anyone who likes these types of films, myself included, cannot be that upset because the film delivers the trash goods in spades, with scenes of group sex, sadism, and lesbianism. The actual murder scenes, however, are not terribly convincing and are rather underplayed, considering the nature of the real-life crimes was incredibly brutal.
