I was not a fan of this movie. The acting was terrible, basically the worst I’ve ever seen. It was very hard to pay attention for three hours of this. Also, the character of Manson was extremely creepy. His looks alone are enough to creep me out, let alone his personality and his actions. His control over the family was startling, and did not sit well with me. What’s worse is even though he scared me a lot, he never actually murdered anyone!!! I can’t wrap my head around that. I felt bad for Bugliosi trying to understand the minds of the Manson family, because I can’t even begin to describe how confused I am about Manson’s unique control. No one ever asked questions, everyone was just instructed to do what he said. Talk about creepy.
