5.0 out of 5 stars Entertaining and Original! January 6, 2009
Format:DVD-R|Verified Purchase
This is the best current Helter Skelter documentary. Host Scott Michaels takes you step by step through the events of that fateful night and you get to see the actual locations where these events occured. If you live in California you can find some of these places on your own, but for those of us who don't, this is the next best thing to taking the actual tour.

There are little tid bits here and there that are interesting as well. In the 'extras' section we get to see the spot where there was the house that Squeaky Fromme grew up in, did you know she signed her name in the concrete? It is these little bits of info that make this a cut above the rest. We also get a trip through the house next to the Tate house, the owner believes it's haunted.

The main documentary is great at showing you these places and the things that you just don't get when looking at photographs. If this case is of interest to you this is a must have. The production quality of the DVD is very good- and the presentation is both entertaining and informative. An eerie scene is the host walking up Cielo Drive near midnight on the anniversary of the murders toward the gate at the former Tate residence. This is the stuff you don't see on A&E!

***UPDATE 12/2009*** - The review written above is for the original release (now out of print) of this documentary. The version available now is released through 'Echo Bridge Entertainment' and does not include the extras mentioned above. It is still the same documentary with an added mention about the fire that ripped through Barkers Ranch - but nothing on Squeaky Fromme's house - no extras.

5.0 out of 5 stars Seriously creepy documentary, absolutely a MUST WATCH!! February 22, 2009
Format:DVD-R|Verified Purchase
I wasn't entirely versed on the Charles Manson murders so this movie was, first of all, terrifyingly eye-opening for me. This is seriously one of the creepiest murders not only in Hollywood history but in American history, and the documentary retells the story in chilling detail with all the gruesome images to accompany it. Yes, the film is historically accurate and educational, but it is also surprisingly edge-of-your-seat and scary! If you're waiting for a calm moment to take that next bite of popcorn, you're going to be waiting a long time (like I was)! I watched this movie with friends for two different movie nights and everyone was successfully creeped out and impressed!! Buy this movie, you won't be disappointed!

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent History Lesson for Film and Crime Buffs January 8, 2009
Format:DVD-R
This DVD is excellent. A great deal of time and research has been put into the creation of it and to me it is one of the best at showing the viewer the world that surrounded The Manson Family as well as Sharon Tate and the other victims.

Scott Michaels films the locations where the horrific events of August 9th & 10th, 1969 took place. He in informed and clearly has a passion for presenting the facts. I look forward to buying other DVD's of his.

5.0 out of 5 stars Helter Skelter Doc Takes You There and Beyond! February 1, 2009
Format:DVD-R|Verified Purchase
Veteran LA Tour Guide Scott Michaels has done it again with the release of his second documentary, The Six Degrees of Helter Skelter. In this 90 minute tour, Michaels takes you behind the scenes and inside the minds of the Manson Family as he explores the murders of August 1969 and visits the sites today, not only of the murder locations, but of every site associated with the victims, the killers, the friends and hangers-on. By the time he winds up at Barker Ranch out in Death Valley, the last spot on earth where Charles Manson was a free man, where the remnants of Tex Watson's car remain today, you will know you have seen the definitive Manson documentary, the likes of which have never been seen before.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Helter Skelter Documentary! April 16, 2009
By KS62
Format:DVD-R|Verified Purchase
This is the best Manson murders documentary i've ever seen! It is a must have for anyone who is interested in "Helter Skelter". Having read many books on the subject i was surprised to learn new things about this famous case after viewing this excellent documentary. Plenty of research was done to make this a fully realized documentary, my compliments to it's creators. Other documentaries about this subject left me feeling like i didn't get the whole picture. Reviewers on Amazon have already done a great job mentioning it's contents so i won't elaborate. All i want to say is if you are thinking about purchasing this, do it! You won't be disappointed. I am so glad i purchased this and will recommend it to others.

5.0 out of 5 stars he definitely did his homework! October 5, 2009
By A. Rice
Format:DVD-R|Verified Purchase
i was very impressed with this film. it was well-made and he did his homework. and then some. you can tell he is fascinated with the history and pop culture aspects as well as quite knowledgeable on many other aspects that tie in to the murders. a lot of trivia that goes along with it all, which some i did not know. i have read helter skelter 9 times now and greg king's book sharon tate and the manson murders. also the killing of sharon tate (with susan atkins' story) and the family by ed sanders. i own all of these. and still there were facts i didn't know that were incorperated into the film. anyone who is into the manson murders should definitely own this one. even if you're not, it is still quite informative. and his narrating is funny, too. one thing to add..on the bonus features, there is a hidden segment under the trailer for his other film the dearly departed volume 1. after it plays he has a cool clip about the ambassador hotel on there, which actually is revelant to sharon tate and also the manson trial. very cool. he goes to all the places associated with the killers, the victims, and charlie. i'm totally jealous. i would LOVE to go up to where 10050 cielo dr. used to be. even though the address is changed and there is a huge ugly mansion there now. i would love to just see it and be there. all in all A+++++++++
