An average group of kids, the "Family," become engulfed in a delusional world where torment and slaughter are considered the path to righteousness.Director Jim VanBebber (Deadbeat at Dawn) delivers a dizzying, rapid-fire vision of the sex and violence that unifies the misguided group, a group hell-bent on executing the brutal vision of its leader, Charles Manson. You've seen the story through the eyes of the law. Now witness it through the eyes of THE MANSOSN FAMILY.

Theres no return

address on this one, hmm.

Let me see.

What the hell is that?

Take a look at this,

To the Pig Producer

of the Charlie movie.

How much more,

am I supposed to suffer,

for something that I did

when I was 20 years old.

Hook up the

half inch machine,

I wanna see what

the hell it is.

You got it.

The powers of the serpent,

that live inside all...


...that is true on

the line of infinity,

infinity speaks in all life

in the voice of

the lost Child...

Kill it.

Hey, you know,

maybe whoever sent it

thinks youll use it.

Theres no way in hell

Im gonna use that thing.

Every time they even make

a mention of the murders,

the Family Murders,

it is Charlie,

Charlie, Charlie,

The, the Prince

of Evil, right?

Very seldom have

I ever seen them mention

the kids that

put in the knives

and the bullets

in the victims

Thats what gets me.

Bobby and Gypsy and I

were sort of this...

traveling family of our own.

I already had that shit

down, when I met him.

I had my girls, he had his.

This is really getting...


Heavy Bobby Im...

Im getting really bad vibes.

On acid.

Theyre eating my skin!

Help me!

Volcanoes are beautiful!

Fire is beautiful!

No, No, No!


Let it die!

Im gonna die!

Let it die.

Let it die.

Let it die.

Let it go.

Let it go.

Let it go where it wants...

let it go.

Let it go.

Let it go.

Let it die, Let it die.

Bobby met Charlie.

If anybody was

influenced, it was him.

By me.

And so I met Charlie.

Making music is

how I met Charlie,

when I joined a band

called the Milky Way,

Charlie was in it.

He was a fine Musician,

very intense,

very vivid from being

locked up all that time.

And he was a great lyricist.

I was, like a

lot of kids my age,

looking for God.
