Helter Skelter (1976) DVD9
One of the most popular TV-movies of all time, Helter Skelter is a well made Docudrama. The film follows the famed investigation of the Tate-LaBianca slaying and the trial of Charles Manson (Steve Railsback), who was convicted of leading a group of followers (known as "The Family") to murder seven people in California, including actress Sharon Tate. The film takes a Law & Order-like approach, starting with the discovery of the murders, which leads to the police gathering snippets of evidence that they eventually connect to the bigger picture. The second half of the movie concentrates on how District Attorney Bugliosi (George DiCenzo) attains a conviction despite the enormous amount of press coverage the case received. Nancy Wolfe, Christina Hart, and Cathey Paine portray the three loyal Manson Family members who were the co-defendants at his trial.
Based on the true story of Charles Manson and the trial that shocked the nation.
