New Doc – ‘Inside The Manson Cult: The Lost Tapes‘
Fox lifts the lid on Charles Manson’s deranged minions and homicidal exploits.
Fox’s new documentary on cult weirdo Charles Manson, “Inside the Manson Cult: The Lost Tapes,” shows how a bohemian commune morphed into a collective of cold-blooded killers at the direction of an insanely savvy sociopath.
The two-hour doc was made from more than 100 hours of footage and takes viewers inside Spahn’s Ranch, where Charles Manson and his freaky followers did drugs and engaged in orgiastic soirées. It features new and archival Q&As with former members, including Catherine “Gypsy” Share, Lynette “Squeaky” Fromme” and Dianne “Snake” Lake, to showcase the “family” aspect of his demented cult.
“Every girl ought to have a daddy like Charles — someone that treasures them as a woman, someone that lets them do things for him,” Fromme says. But the special also explores how Manson exploited his followers and inculcated in each of them a sense insecurity, making them susceptible to his manipulation and propaganda, and turning them in natural born killers.
The piece includes interviews with those involved in the case against Manson, including prosecutor Stephen Kay and FBI criminal profiler John Douglas. Most notably, though, it will also include an exclusive interview with Bobby Beausoleil, who is currently serving a life sentence for a murder he committed with the Manson family.
“Inside the Manson Cult: The Lost Tapes” is narrated by Liev Schreiber and producer by Naked Television. Simon Andreae, Hugh Ballantyne and Richard Dale serve as executive producers, along with Allan Gaba and Dean Egnater.
Our favorite auteur, Quentin Tarantino, is currently working on a film about the Manson Family. Margot Robbie has been tapped to play Sharon Tate, the pregnant wife of Roman Polanski who was slaughtered by the Manson Family in 1969. Leonardo DiCaprio is rumored to play the lead along with Brad Pitt. The film’s aim is take a “unique perspective” on the surreal and sinister story. We’re betting Quentin got a first cut of the new doc.
The special, re-mastered in hi-res color with perfect sound, is out now – 10 months after Manson’s death. Watch the exclusive first look from VIVISXN below:
