Movie Reviews

Seriously creepy documentary, absolutely a MUST WATCH!!
M. Araujo | Southern California, USA | 02/22/2009
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I wasn't entirely versed on the Charles Manson murders so this movie was, first of all, terrifyingly eye-opening for me. This is seriously one of the creepiest murders not only in Hollywood history but in American history, and the documentary retells the story in chilling detail with all the gruesome images to accompany it. Yes, the film is historically accurate and educational, but it is also surprisingly edge-of-your-seat and scary! If you're waiting for a calm moment to take that next bite of popcorn, you're going to be waiting a long time (like I was)! I watched this movie with friends for two different movie nights and everyone was successfully creeped out and impressed!! Buy this movie, you won't be disappointed!"
Entertaining and Original!

"This is the best current Helter Skelter documentary. Host Scott Michaels takes you step by step through the events of that fateful night and you get to see the actual locations where these events occured. If you live in California you can find some of these places on your own, but for those of us who don't, this is the next best thing to taking the actual tour.

There are little tid bits here and there that are interesting as well. In the 'extras' section we get to see the spot where there was the house that Squeaky Fromme grew up in, did you know she signed her name in the concrete? It is these little bits of info that make this a cut above the rest. We also get a trip through the house next to the Tate house, the owner believes it's haunted.

The main documentary is great at showing you these places and the things that you just don't get when looking at photographs. If this case is of interest to you this is a must have. The production quality of the DVD is very good- and the presentation is both entertaining and informative. An eerie scene is the host walking up Cielo Drive near midnight on the anniversary of the murders toward the gate at the former Tate residence. This is the stuff you don't see on A&E!

***UPDATE 12/2009*** - The review written above is for the original release (now out of print) of this documentary. The version available now is released through 'Echo Bridge Entertainment' and does not include the extras mentioned above. It is still the same documentary with an added mention about the fire that ripped through Barkers Ranch - but nothing on Squeaky Fromme's house - no extras."

Helter Skelter Doc Takes You There and Beyond!

"Veteran LA Tour Guide Scott Michaels has done it again with the release of his second documentary, The Six Degrees of Helter Skelter. In this 90 minute tour, Michaels takes you behind the scenes and inside the minds of the Manson Family as he explores the murders of August 1969 and visits the sites today, not only of the murder locations, but of every site associated with the victims, the killers, the friends and hangers-on. By the time he winds up at Barker Ranch out in Death Valley, the last spot on earth where Charles Manson was a free man, where the remnants of Tex Watson's car remain today, you will know you have seen the definitive Manson documentary, the likes of which have never been seen before."
