Storyline

"The Six Degrees of Helter Skelter" walks in the footsteps of the Manson Family, visiting over 40 locations related to the infamous Tate/LaBianca murders, and tying together the dozens of odd connections between Charles Manson and the Hollywood elite. Entertainingly led by famous Hollywood historian Scott Michaels (E!'s 20 Most Horrifying Hollywood Murders, Dearly Departed: Vol. 1, FindADeath.com), this epic documentary employs never-before-seen autopsy reports (analyzed with the help of the Los Angeles Department of the Coroner), dozens of rare photographs, original Manson Family music recordings, and modern-day visits to the locations where the action went down, in the most complete retelling of the Manson Murders ever put on film.

Not Very Credible
21 March 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The narrator begins by basically selling his business and showing off his collection of rubbage gathered from celebrities. At certain times he gives way to storytelling and his own theories which kind of takes away some credibility. He does a very thorough job but there are times where he points to an object and says it has to be a relic of the Family when he has no proof. There were times when I wanted to shout "just because you see the words Helter Skelter doesn't mean the Manson Family wrote it". There are brief moments when he seems to become too attached to the Manson Family activities to the point it looks like he is excited about the killings. At one time he even makes a joke about the Lablanca couples murder.
