The Six Degrees of Helter Skelter (2009)

*** (out of 4)

Scott Michaels, the creator of the website Findadeath, hosts this documentary, which goes through the details of the crimes committed by Charles Manson but the highlight is the tour of the actual locations. This is an extremely uneven documentary and there's no doubt that it was cheaply produced but I think there are enough interesting things here to make it worth viewing especially for those interested in the crimes. I'm sure most people going to this film are already going to know the details of the crime so they might not enjoy sitting through them again. A large portion of the running time talks about the careers of the victims, what they were doing the day of the crimes and of course we also look at the killers and how the crimes were committed. A current coroner in Los Angeles sits down over the death reports and gives us the details of all the wounds and which ones might have been the fatal blows. The stuff dealing with Sharon Tate is always hard to listen to simply because she was pregnant and there are some pretty graphic discussions about her baby and how it could have been saved had medical attention gotten to the body faster. A warning should also be given because actual crime scene photos are shown and obviously they are quite graphic. One of the most interesting things this documentary does is has Michaels pretty much give us a tour of the events. Coming forty-years after the actual events, obviously a lot of things have changed so nothing looks exactly the same. It's still interesting to see these places and how they stand today. the documentary even shows some apartments that Tate lived in when she arrived in Hollywood as well as other locations that she and Polanski stayed at.
