Out of print and almost impossible to find for decades, Manson has been uploaded to Archives.com. This documentary is terrifying because every second of it is real. It shows Manson family members skinny-dipping, fornicating, brandishing guns, dropping acid and talking crazy just before the Tate/Labianca murders. The film was arrived at almost by accident. Some young filmmakers were doing a documentary on hippie communes and visited the Manson family. While they were editing their footage they turned on the TV news and were surprised to see Charlie’s smiling face. They quickly grabbed their cameras and rushed down to the Manson trial.
