Helter.Skelter - Charles Manson Movie





Although not known as strictly a serial killer, Charles Manson was born "no name Maddox" in Cincinnati, Ohio to 16-year-old Kathleen Maddox. Kathleen was a young runaway who had fled home at the age of 15 and spent the next few decades drinking too much, with periods of time spent in jail- some arrests due to prostitution. Because of this, Charles or Manson was raised by a slew of over-religious family members, foster homes and reform schools- sexually assaulted as a child at the institutions that where in place to teach. By age nine, Charles Manson had already started stealing and soon added burglary and stealing cars to his repertoire. Charles was not wanted and reportedly sold to a bartender for a pitcher of beer. Tate's house is with these auspicious beginnings that Charles Mason was able to become a would be musician, charmer, manipulator and cult leader. During the summer of love, "when young people turn to drugs and flower power-- the advice was "tune in, turn on, and drop out"" it was in this enviornment a surprise charismatic Manson was able to attract young dropouts from all strata of white society.

As a mentor, father figure Manson considered himself God. He had "family" topping fifty member at it's peak. During this time Manson grew obsessed with death and the song Helter Skelter: He believed, according to former Family member, on New Year's Eve 1968: "Are you hip to what the Beatles are saying? Helter Skelter is coming down. The Beatles are telling it like it is." He believed that Beatles White Album advocated Revolution and that the blacks would rise up against the whites. It was with this logic that he was able to control the people under him. The house was one that a record producer spurned Manson had lived. Tate just happened to rent the doomed dwelling. When picking his victims for the start of the race riots When Manson sent his family to the Tate house, he told them to make it as gruesome as they could. The next night they killed the supermarket mongul, LaBiaca and his wife. I was this song that was written on the LaBianca's refrigerator. Both mass murders were supposed to blamed on the blacks so the riots would begin.

Nothing could be further from the truth of what Mason preached. His family members were raided ad Charles was charged with stolen Autos. People who knew them but were not part of the group reported confessions from Manson and Family members about the same time--November 12, 1969. Susan Atkins...a completely brainwashed follower was also arrested on unrelated charges. Susan bragged to her cell mate about the murders and even tasting the blood. Her room mate turned her in and the Mason "family" life was revealed slowly at first then it completely blew open. Manson was nonchalant over the killings bragging a few days after the Tate murders that "We knocked off five of them just the other night.". Family members bragged about lots of murders and the LAPD found a goldmine of information interviewing them, The "family" members were proud of doing Manson's bidding and would have the compunction to kill again. Being the mastermind and director of murderous activity put Manson on trial and a guilty verdict resulted. To this day he has been unstable and prophesizing in his own head. What is amazing in that people can be taking in by a cult and be transformed completely form college grad to killer. The art of pursuasion can kill.
