  • Once Upon a Time... in Hollywood

    I am no fan of Quentin Tarantino, having dubbed him "the Mantovani of mayhem" and endured the reactions of an outraged comments section that in turn dismissed me as a squaresville snob out of touch with flyover country (of which Mr Tarantino would seem an unlikely avatar). Still I do my best: My boys wanted to see The Hateful Eight, so I dutifully tagged along and fell asleep for a good forty minutes of its three-hour length. And in the four years since I have never felt the least inclined to see what I missed. To be honest, I also...

    Once Upon a Time in Hollywood is quite the comeback for Quentin Tarantino. After the stillborn Hateful Eight and the loss of his mentor Harvey Weinstein into the maw of #MeToo, the writer-director is all on his own with his ninth film; he’s off-the-leash, flush with 90 million of Sony’s dollars, and what did he deliver…? A straight-up masterpiece. If this isn’t the movie Tarantino was born to direct (that was probably Pulp Fiction) OUATIH is unquestionably the movie his 27-year career has been chugging toward, the one where it all comes together: a passion for forgotten B-movies, for correcting history, for all things pop culture...

    California Gov. Gavin Newsom overruled a parole board’s decision to free Charles Manson follower Leslie Van Houten on Monday, marking the third time a governor has stopped the release of the youngest member of Manson’s murderous cult. Van Houten, 69, is still a threat, Newsom said, though she has spent nearly half a century behind bars and received reports of good behavior and testimonials about her rehabilitation. “While I commend Ms. Van Houten for her efforts at rehabilitation and acknowledge her youth at the time of the crimes, I am concerned about her role in these killings and her potential...

    A California parole panel on Thursday recommended for the first time that Charles Manson follower Robert Beausoleil be freed after serving nearly a half-century in prison for murder. Beausoleil, 71, was not involved in the most notorious killings of actress Sharon Tate and six others by the Manson “family” in 1969. He was convicted in the slaying of musician Gary Hinman that same year. Hinman was tortured for three days, according to testimony at previous parole hearings, including when Manson cut his face with a sword. Parole panels ruled against releasing Beausoleil 18 prior times. California’s incoming governor, Gavin Newsom,...

    A Los Angeles County Superior Court judge on Friday refused to overturn Gov. Jerry Brown’s decision denying parole to former Charles Manson follower and convicted killer Leslie Van Houten. In his ruling, Judge William C. Ryan said there was “some evidence” to support Brown’s decision in refusing to release Leslie Van Houten, 68, who in 1971 was found guilty of taking part in the brutal killings of Leno and Rosemary LaBianca in Los Angeles. If released, Ryan found that Van Houten “would pose an unreasonable risk of danger to society.” Ryan said the brutal and terrorizing manner in which Van...

    Sharon Tate’s sister has condemned Leonardo DiCaprio and Brad Pitt, the stars of Quentin Tarantino’s upcoming film about the Manson murders, “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood.” “To [celebrities] it’s a paycheck and these people just don’t care,” Debra Tate told TMZ Thursday. “They are terribly hurtful to the actual family and all the living victims. They don’t give a s—t.”

    On November 19th, 2017, the infamous Manson family cult leader Charles Manson died at the age of 83. While discussing the Manson Family provokes flashbacks to the gruesome murders in August 1969 by Manson’s followers, very few people examine the backstory which leads to these types of tragedies. You cannot understand Charles Manson as an adult without understanding what happened to him in his childhood. What is the truth about Charles Manson?

    The Manson murders — the seven killings committed by Charles Manson’s followers in two days in Los Angeles in August 1969 — are often thought to mark the end of the 1960s, as if those brutal slayings were the inevitable outgrowth of the counterculture, the dark consequence of long hair, free love, casual drug use and a general breakdown of authority and social norms. This sentiment was most famously expressed by Joan Didion in her book “The White Album.” She wrote that “in a sense” it was true that “the Sixties ended abruptly on August 9, 1969, ended at the...

Well, after 45 years in prison for the heinous murders he instigated, Charles Manson has finally met his Maker. Many in the public have held a kind of horrified fascination for the cult hero whose “Manson family” shocked the world in 1969 with some of the bloodiest, cruelist, most senseless murders known up to that time. How many who...

    Let’s not forget Bernardine Dohrn, Bill Ayers, and the Four-Finger Salute. Most articles on the death of madman Charles Manson opened by mentioning his role in the diabolical Tate-LaBianca murders. The AP story started this way: Charles Manson, the hippie cult leader who became the hypnotic-eyed face of evil across America after orchestrating the gruesome murders of pregnant actress Sharon Tate and six others in Los Angeles during the summer of 1969, died Sunday after nearly a half-century in prison.… The Manson Family, as his followers were called, slaughtered five of its victims on Aug. 9, 1969, at Tate’s home:...

    Newsweek continues to embarrass the legacy of the once-reputable publication with anti-Trump hit pieces on a regular basis, but a recent story titled, “How murderer Charles Manson and Donald Trump used language to gain followers,” takes things to a dark new level. The left-leaning publication literally compared a convicted mass murderer and cult leader to the President of the United States. Former President of the American Psychoanalytic Association Mark Smaller told Newsweek that part of Manson’s power lay in the type of language he used. “A charismatic leader knows how to speak to people in a way that will emotionally...

    The death of cult leader and convicted murderer Charles Manson resurfaces tales from his twisted family’s killing spree after nearly four decades. Manson orchestrated the brutal deaths of actress Sharon Tate and six other innocent people in the 1960s according to historical reports, which leave many wondering how he convinced followers, made up of a former Sunday school teacher, a church choir singer and a one-time homecoming princess, into committing such brutal acts. According to psychoanalyst Mark Smaller, past president of the American Psychoanalytic Association, part of Manson’s power lay in the type of language he used. Notably, Manson was...

    Debra Tate says she's more concerned about Manson's imprisoned followers than she ever was about the cult leaderDebra Tate got the call from Corcoran State Prison around 8:30 p.m. Sunday -- the man who ordered the killing of her sister was dead. It wasn't a surprise. She'd been expecting it for at least a week after hearing about Charles Manson's poor health. But it still took some time for her to process her feelings. After the phone call Sunday night, Tate said she prayed. "I said a prayer for his passing, and I thought about it for a moment," Tate...

SNIP “He’s taken the weight of the world on his shoulders, and he doesn’t think it’d be in my best interest to take on his name and be involved with him,” Freeman explained at the time. SNIP

    Born Charles Milles Maddox on Nov. 12, 1934, in Cincinnati, Ohio, Manson – who took his uncle’s last name – was in and out of reform schools and prison beginning at the age of 12. In 1967, Manson moved to San Francisco, where he began to attract a devoted group of followers, including some who would later carry out a string of savage killings known as the Tate/LaBianca murders. Over the course of two nights, the killers took the lives of seven people, inflicting 169 stab wounds and seven .22-caliber gunshot wounds. On June 16, 1970, Charles Manson and three...

Manson died at Bakersfield hospital in California, Tate's sister Debra told TMZ after receiving a call from the prison where Manson was located.
