Charles Manson himself I believe needs no introduction, but it’s enough to say the crimes he and his “family” committed will forever haunt the world. From the director of The Black Dahlia Haunting and the recently released Dead Sea, Brandon Slagle, presents the trailer to his latest flick the House of Manson, about the life and crimes of Charles Manson. Check out the synopsis and trailer below.
House of Manson chronicles Charles Manson’s life from childhood up until his arrest following the raid on Barker Ranch months after the infamous Tate/LaBianca murders that sent a shockwave not just through Los Angeles but throughout the entire world.
The film was written and directed by Brandon Slagle, who was recently deemed the “go-to-gore-guy” by The Hollywood Reporter during their coverage of the European Film Market. While not a “gory” film, House of Manson is poised to take a more intense approach to the subject matter than previous film and TV iterations have. The film was produced by Britt Griffith (Syfy’s “Ghost Hunters”), who also produced Slagle’s previous directorial effort, the dark creature feature Dead Sea.
Actor Ryan Kiser (Truth or Dare) stars as Charles Manson, having previously played the role in the acclaimed short film “Lie.” Rounding out the cast are Reid Warner (Oren Peli’s Area 51) as Tex Watson, Chriss Anglin (Call of Duty: Black Ops) as Ronald Hughes, Devanny Pinn (The Black Dahlia Haunting) as Susan Atkins, Serena Lorien as Patricia Krenwinkel, Erin Marie Hogan (Paranormal Entity) as Linda Kasabian, Suzi Lorraine (Music and Lyrics) as Sharon Tate, and Tristan Risk (American Mary) as Abigail Folger as well as Julie Rose, Adrian Quihuis, Mel Turner (“Deadliest Warrior”), Jason McNeil, Ryan Cleary, Keith Kraft (Beowulf), Trish Cook (Dark Tide), Tawny Amber Young, Max Wasa, Darius Devontaye Green, and many more.
Charles Manson has been a hot topic as of late due to NBC’s upcoming TV series “Aquarius” starring David Duchovny, the recent 45th anniversary of the Tate and LaBianca murders, a new New York Times bestselling book about Manson’s life, as well as the recent engagement announcement to his 26-year-old girlfriend.
House of Manson will debut later this year.
