“A living, breathing document of one man’s obsession with Manson and his family.” - Rock! Shock! Pop!
For decades, there have been widespread rumors that the Manson Family had commandeered a Super 8 camera, and used it to document their decline from a hippie collective all the way to a kill-crazed pack of rabid maniacs. Supposedly, there was footage of fire-lit sing-alongs at the Spahn Ranch, nocturnal creepy-crawls through the homes of the rich, and of course, the Tate-LaBianca murders. Do these films actually exist? No! But this singular vision from writer/director/actor/producer/cinematographer/composer John Aes-Nihil catapults that legend into reality all the same, creating a chillingly credible snapshot of one of America’s darkest chapters.
