  • Given that they are usually narcissists as well as psychopaths, the publicity only feeds their egos...But Manson: The Lost Tapes had the distinction, to an extent, of keeping Charles Manson...largely out of the picture.

  • We may pretend our interest in true crime horror is justified by the need to understand as much as we can to prevent such enormities occurring again or some such nonsense - but actually we all know how base our interest really is.

  • This compelling documentary, the first of two, gave a unique insight into how a psychotic control freak could take possession of vulnerable people through hallucinogenic drugs and sexual abuse, and manipulate them for the rest of their lives.

  • Where the programme came into its own was in finding former cult members and showing them the tapes.

  • Manson: The Lost Tapes really is disquieting: a trip and a half of purest horror dressed up as social history.

  • Works as a pop psychological study, but is loaded with too much filler.
