DVD - The Manson Family Director's Cut (2 Disc)
The Manson Family explores the life of Charles Manson and his "family" of followers gathered on a ranch outside Los Angeles in the late 1960s. It graphically depicts life under Manson's sway: a presumed oasis of free love and plentiful drugs turning into ground zero for a madman's paranoid visions, and leading to the slaughter of nine people.
Besides recreating the Manson lifestyle, the film also follows a modern-day tabloid journalist investigating the murders, and a group of nihilistic, Manson-obsessed punk teenagers. Using a wide variety of techniques, Van Bebber has fused classic grindhouse horror with an experimentalism rooted in the underground Cinema of Transgression, a punk-inspired 1980s movement, and in the hallucinogenic occultism of cult director Kenneth Anger.
