Movie Info

Manson is a documentary feature which explores the history, beliefs and mind-sets of those involved in the brutal Tate-LaBianca slayings. In order to do this, it features interviews with Manson Family members who left before the slayings as well as an interview with the prosecuting attorney Vincent Bugliosi. The bland, nearly nonsensical testimony of women from his group is particularly chilling. Other footage includes some of Manson's songs and an interview he gave to Jerry Rubin.more

Audience Reviews for Manson

As the flower child movement of the late '60s began to fade, many free-loving youngsters sought worry-free refuge within social communes. Charles Manson, using a dangerous mixture of intoxicants and clever manipulation, invoked the potential to create his own 'Family' circle. By raiding restaurant and grocery store dumpsters, they ate like lower-class kings and queens. From his feel-good doctrines and seductive music, Manson's followers took on his twisted personality. Just like a sadistic tribe, Manson issued orders to his followers (male and female) to pillage, maim, torture, and terrify the Californian middle-to-upper class. This documentary chronicles the events leading up to, and following, the Tate and La Bianca murders - even taking first-hand testimony from various pivotal members of the Manson Family. His prostitution ring enabled the Family to take on new followers, gradually birthing children and raising them in Charlie's image. By following the Family in their everyday routine, we catch a lengthy glimpse of America's most controversial cult leader.
