Manson Family" Comes to Providence, October 27,
THE END OF THE 6O’S…FREE LOVE…PSYCHEDELIC
DRUGS…AND THE MOST NOTORIOUS MURDERS IN AMERICAN
If you think you know the story of the Manson Family,
you are dead wrong.
On a ranch outside of Los Angeles, the dream of the
"Love Generation"is transforming into something
evil. What was once an oasis of free love and acid trips
has become ground zero for a madman’s paranoid
visions. 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
You’ve seen the story through the eyes of the
law. Now witness it through the eyes of The Manson Family.
So come Down to the Providence Chamber of Commerce at
8:00 p.m. and join the family in this Special Presentation
by Dark Sky Films.
"4 Stars! By creating a continuum between acid-mad
anti-hippies and the current crop of nihilist punks,
VanBebber shows a desperate, marginalized mind-set that
remains virulently alive. Crucial."
-- Peter Redic, ROLLING STONE
"The film lures you inside its murder-with-a-smile
-- Owen Gleiberman, ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY
"It has an undeniable power and effect, but be
sure you understand what you are getting yourself into."
-- Roger Ebert, CHICAGO SUN-TIMES
