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.
THANK'S FOR THE DVD GUY'S
THANKS SO MUCH
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.
Although this is a simple and modest production, the documentary is well-done and informative. Michaels runs the Dearly Departed Tours in Los Angeles and is well versed in the darker side of Hollywood history. He takes us to many sites that most of us have never seen before. There is a brief interview with the man who bought the Jay Sebring house from his grieving parents. The interview have been longer with more scenes of this architecturally-unusual home.
Michaels takes us to homes inhabited by the victims at some point along with businesses run by the victims. The businesses have changed and some buildings are gone but history lives in the locations. One of the eery parts of the documentary is the actual recordings song by the Mansion families along with explanations of Charles Manson's connection to the Beach Boys and Doris Days music producer son Terry Melcher.
Michaels has no hestitation to sneak into locations that are off-limits to the public such as the road leading to the Tate home.
This dvd was incredibly inexpensive and it was well worth the cost to get some deeper insight into a crazy time. Although it is low budget, it is a well-done documentary and worth the time for anyone interested in this tragic series of events.

It did not meet my expectations. It was promoted as being really intense. I found it very tame to the point of being actually rather boring for anyone who knew the Manson case. Read morePublished 1 month ago by Amazon Customer
