Check out the HOUSE OF MANSON trailer!
One of the most interesting and intriguing stories I have ever known about is the story of Charles Manson. What he and his followers did was something that if you saw in a movie first, you could never believe it could really happen, but it did. There have been numerous films about the Manson murders, and a teaser trailer for the newest one has been released! The film is called HOUSE OF MANSON! Here is some info about the film from the film's official press release:
House of Manson chronicles Charles Manson's life from his childhood up until his arrest following the raid on Barker Ranch months after the infamous Tate/LaBianca murders that sent a shockwave not just through Los Angeles, but through the entire world.
The film was written and directed by Brandon Slagle, who was recently deemed the "go-to-gore-guy" by The Hollywood Reporter during their coverage of the European Film Market. While not a "gory" film, House of Manson is poised to take a more intense approach to the subject matter than previous film and TV iterations have. The film was produced by Britt Griffith, (co-star of Syfy's "Ghost Hunters"), who also produced Slagle's previous directorial effort, the dark creature feature Dead Sea, set for retail release in the United States and Canada in May.
Actor Ryan Kiser (Truth or Dare) stars as Charles Manson, having previously played the role in the acclaimed short film "Lie." Rounding out the cast is Reid Warner (Oren Peli's Area 51) as Tex Watson, Chriss Anglin (Call of Duty: Black Ops) as Ronald Hughes, Devanny Pinn (The Black Dahlia Haunting) as Susan Atkins, Serena Lorien as Patricia Krenwinkel, Erin Marie Hogan (Paranormal Entity) as Linda Kasabian, Suzi Lorraine (Music and Lyrics) as Sharon Tate, and Tristan Risk (American Mary) as Abigail Folger as well as Julie Rose, Adrian Quihuis, Mel Turner ("Deadliest Warrior"), Jason McNeil, Ryan Cleary, Keith Kraft (Beowulf), Trish Cook (Dark Tide), Tawny Amber Young, Max Wasa, Darius Devontaye Green, and many more.
Charles Manson has been a hot topic as of late due to the recent parole of family member Bruce Davis as well two upcoming television series - one from Rob Zombie and Bret Easton Ellis and the other from NBC, starring David Duchovney. Additionally, this year marks the 45th Anniversary of the Tate and LaBianca murders.
House of Manson will debut later this year.
Check out the teaser trailer and let me know what you think! I think actor Ryan Kiser's portrayal of Charles Manson looks super intense!
