If you think you know the story of the Manson Family, you are dead wrong. Director Jim Van Bebber (Deadbeat at Dawn) delivers an uncompromising snapshot of this cult of personality, hell-bent on executing the brutal vision of its leader, Charles Manson. On a ranch outside of L.A. the dream of the "Love Generation" is perverting into something evil. What was once an oasis of free love and acid trips has become ground zero for a madman's paranoid visions. An average group of kids, the "Family," become engulfed in a delusional world where torment and slaughter is considered the path to righteousness. The Manson Family is a dizzying, rapid-fire vision of the sex and violence that unifies the misguided group, and at the direction of their leader, ends in a brutal spree leaving seven people dead in a 48 hours. You've seen the story through the eyes of the law. Now witness it through the eyes of The Manson Family. Plus short: "Gator Green."
