The Manson Family delivers an uncompromising, brutal vision of the collapse of the “Love Generation.” On a ranch outside of LA the hippie dream 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 are 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 48 hours.
If you can’t make it to any of the screenings, then mark your calendars for May 7th, when the Blu-ray will be released, featuring an all-new director’s commentary, the Gator Green short film, the uncut version of the previously censored feature-length documentary The VanBebber Family on the film’s near-mythic production, and more.
