During Susan Atkin's testimony, Bugliosi approaches her with two photographs in his hand and asks her if she can identify the car belonging to victim Steve Parent. As he approaches, the photograph visible in his hand is clearly a black and white photo of a car parked in front of a building. However, when he hands the photo to her, the insert shot is a color photo of a car parked in a wooded drive. The other photo is that of Parent slumped dead behind the wheel and there were no other photos. See more »
Although I liked this remake of the '76 version, the original still surpassed it by miles. Jeremy Davies gave a very good performance as Manson, yet didn't send chills down my spine like Steve Railsback did in the original. Although I understand that the focus of this remake was more on Manson and the family and less on the investigation and trial, I felt some key details were, maybe purposely, left out. One that really bothered me was the fact that on both nights, the killers wore dark clothing and brought changes of clothing with them, though in this version they wore whatever they happened to have on at the ranch. Tossing the bloody clothing and weapons over an embankment, they had discarded what eventually became some of the first physical pieces of evidence found linking them directly to the crimes, other than actual prints found at the crime scene. For a film that supposedly paid such close attention to detail, this was a big one to omit. All in all, worth seeing. Do see the original, though, and I think you'll agree that Steve Railsback gave an almost effortless performance as Manson, seeming to be looking at you right through your TV screen.
