VanBebber delivers an LSD-induced nightmare vision of the Manson murders as told by the Family members themselves. He has obviously done his homework, as many of the recreations and dialogue are taken directly from Manson, the documentary that spoke with the real Family members, and he includes audio clips and songs from Manson, himself. The visual stylization and grain added to the film gives it a sense of integrity and realism. The narrative often seems disjointed and non-linear, which I guess accurately reflects the mindset of the group. It is a valid indie effort, but it suffers most from the forced social commentary that is sloppily added with the inclusion of the modern teen followers.
