Obviously inspired by recent headlines.
8 June 2013 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

In 1971, Charles Manson and a group of losers who worshiped him were all convicted of the grisly Tate-LaBianca murders. It was a HUGE trial--and was publicized widely. Now, just a few months later, "Cannon" cashes in on this with "A Deadly Quiet Town"-a show very obviously inspired by these despicable creeps.

A father is concerned that his daughter may have fallen in with a group of young losers who practically worship their leader. It's a cult and it may just be a very deadly one. When Cannon investigates, he finds a group of very impressionable youths--so impressionable that it appears they're willing to murder just to please their demented leader.

While this is a very, very entertaining episode, it's also a bit unsavory as the folks at Quinn Martin Productions seem to be cashing in on the Manson family sickness. Well made and interesting but a bit disturbing since it's obviously a case of art imitating life.
