    There were many movies/documentaries of Charles Manson throughout the years. Can admin list some of it in, particularly Helter Skelter.

    Some of the clips in the movie came from the movie You Killed Me First. Death Valley 69!!! This movie is shit though.

    Jim is a wild dude and innovator! He shot some videos for Skinny Puppy and Download scored this. Glad this movie filmed in the 90s was finally completed. Though the budget was low, it works for the material.

    The whole Charles Manson boogeyman fairytale is a load of horseshit. So let me get this straight. Manson had Sharon Tate murdered to start a race war the blacks would win. Once in control, the blacks would not be able to handle the power. That is when Manson and his minions would emerge from the “bottomless pit” and become king of the world. And 99% of people in America bought that story hook, line and sinker? The truth of the matter is that Sharon Tate’s father worked for the Nixon administration and was in charge of psychological operations (aka – psy-ops) during the Vietnam war. Peace and love hippies were convincing suburban housewives that 300+ young American soldiers coming back from Nam in body bags every week was wrong. Nixon got together with the Hollywood folks and they came up with this BS story to vilify hippies. Their scheme worked perfectly. Hippies immediately shut up about the war and Nixon’s weapons manufacturing bonanza continued for another 5 years without protest. Then we see Manson doing interviews in prison and at parole hearings wearing ripped jeans, denim jackets, hippie love beads and a long beard, all of which are not allowed according to the California Corrections Grooming Policy. Honestly, that 5 foot 2, smelly 110 pound weakling boogeyman Manson would be my zombie slave for life after I gave him one half-hearted back-handed slap and knocked him half way across the room.
    By the way – this movie sucks. If you are going to tell a BS story, at least make it interesting. I love the movie “Apollo 13.” Everyone knows the story is a crock of shit but it was really emotionally gripping and filmed beautifully with a big budget. This Manson film looks like a high school project with piss poor actors.

        Dude – look for Paul Tate on wiki – No wiki page – you bought that moronic lie? The TV could tell you anything and you would believe it, like Biden got 81 million votes. Let me guess – Sandy Hook is totally real too.

          The guy couldn’t fill a high school gym, for crying out loud. And Sandy Hook… lets just say I’ve seen enough evidence to arouse my suspicions. But Charlie… first off, he don’t surf. Secondly, he and his ilk were dirty, smelly hippies. I don’t like dirty, smelly hippies. They’re dirty, and they smell bad. I rest my case.

            Sorry to inform you that almost everything you’ve ever read in newspapers and history books is either a flat out lie or wildly exaggerated. Little pipsqueak boogeyman Manson was the most dangerous man alive? Please. By the way – he had the deepest suntan I have ever seen for someone that spent 50+ years 23 hours a day looking at a 100 watt lightbulb. (Here’s the news – you ready? Charles Manson (not his real name) was a paid crisis actor. He never spent a day in prison. He never had conjugal visits with his 27 year old bride Star when he was 81. It was all a BS lie to keep you scared of the 5 foot 2 110 pound pipsqueak boogeyman.)

        You should read the best selling book Chaos: the CIA, Charles Manson and the 60s. Award winning book based on decades of research that goes into how Charlie was indeed an informant for the cops which is likely why they got away for so long. Hell he was even on probation the whole time the murders were going on. I mean, obviously you are unfamiliar with the CIA’s Project CHAOS or FBI Cointelpro, but people who have spent years and years researching documents released by Freedom of Information Act and other sources agree that the “myth of Manson” that Bugliosi put forward that is widely accepted is just that… a myth.
