Title: Helter Skelter TV Movie A new take on the Manson Family murders, with a keen focus on Charles Manson himself.
It is with mixed emotions that I give this outstanding documentary such a high rating, because it doesn't exactly know where the line between glorification of a murderous madman and objective re-telling of a truly horrible tale is and often crosses it , but the movie is so effective at telling the tale of Charles Manson and his followers that it deserves to be seen.
Before I go on, it should also be noted that the movie takes a great many creative liberties with its source material, which is perfectly fine with me.
What I don't like is when movies are marketed as based on true events or inspired by true events or something and then take some story and do whatever they want with it.
This movie is so honest that it starts with nearly a solid minute of full-screen titles explaining that the story has been fictionalized, that certain characters and events have been dramatized for effect.
The one problem that I have with the movie is that, since so much was dramatized, it was made almost as a fictional thriller rather than a documentary about the Manson family.
I saw a documentary about the standoff in Waco that went into great detail about the ATF's involvement and endless screwups that resulted in the deaths of so many people, and I think something similar would have been the best way to approach this movie.
The murder scenes in this movie are extremely difficult to watch because you know they really happened. If nothing else, great attention was paid to making sure that the murders were as close to real life as possible.
Many of the victims were even in the same position and locations in and around their houses as they really were when they were found. And this is what made me dislike the level of glorification in the movie.
Charles Manson is so deeply insane and the murders committed by his followers, no matter how brainwashed they were, were so heinous and so disgusting that it made me wish they had thrown him in prison and barred all reporters from talking to him or anyone who knew anything about him.
His punishment should have been disappearance. On the other hand, I guess I have to admit that I am fascinated by stories like his, which is why I watch documentaries about the standoff at Waco and movies about Ed Gein or John Wayne Gacy.
But I like to think that I look at them almost like extended news clips despite being fictionalized to whatever extent, in this case , and that I can watch something like this and maintain a level of disgust at what really happened.

If so, the song's lyrics may also evoke memories of clinging on to hessian mats and spiralling down fairground slides. Helter-Skelter slides began appearing at British fairs around the turn of the 20th century.
In , the UK newspaper The Westmorland Gazette included this:. Bugliosi's book was the basis for the television film Helter Skelter.
The film's popularity in the US ensured that the song, and the White Album generally, received a new wave of attention. As a result, Capitol planned to issue "Helter Skelter" as the A-side of the single from Rock 'n' Roll Music but relented, realising that to exploit its association with Manson would be in poor taste.
It has nothing to do with anything, and least of all to do with me. Reflecting on "Helter Skelter" and its appropriation by the Manson Family in his authorised biography, Many Years from Now , McCartney said, "Unfortunately, it inspired people to do evil deeds" and that the song had acquired "all sorts of ominous overtones because Manson picked it up as an anthem".
He adds: "While ' Revolution ' posited a forthcoming unity as far as social change, 'Helter Skelter' signified a chaotic and overwhelming sense of falling apart occurring throughout the world politically and, not unrelated, the falling apart of the Beatles as a working band and the counterculture dream they represented.
Writing for MusicHound in , Guitar World editor Christopher Scapelliti grouped "Helter Skelter" with " While My Guitar Gently Weeps " and " Happiness Is a Warm Gun " as the White Album's three "fascinating standouts".
Stolworthy described it as "one of the best rock songs ever recorded" and concluded: "The fiercest, most blistering track that arguably paved the way for heavy metal is far removed from the tame love songs people were used to from [McCartney].
Ian MacDonald dismissed "Helter Skelter" as "ridiculous, [with] McCartney shrieking weedily against a massively tape-echoed backdrop of out-of-tune thrashing", and said that in their efforts to embrace heavy rock, the Beatles "comically overreached themselves, reproducing the requisite bulldozer design but on a Dinky Toy scale".
He added: "Few have seen fit to describe this track as anything other than a literally drunken mess. He says that it becomes "a bit dull after two minutes" and, after its laboured attempts at an ending, is "redeemed only" by Starr's closing remark.
Doyle Greene states that the Beatles and Manson are "permanently connected in pop-culture consciousness" as a result of Manson's interpretation of "Helter Skelter", "Piggies" and other tracks from the White Album.
In March , Q magazine ranked "Helter Skelter" at number 5 in its list of the " Greatest Guitar Tracks Ever".

In , Mötley Crüe included the song on their album Shout at the Devil. Nikki Sixx , the band's bassist, recalled that "Helter Skelter" appealed to them through its guitars and lyrics, but also because of the Manson murders and the song's standing as a "real symbol of darkness and evil".
In , a U2 recording was used as the opening track on their album Rattle and Hum. The song was recorded live at the McNichols Sports Arena in Denver , Colorado on 8 November Oasis recorded a cover of "Helter Skelter", released in as a B-side on their " Who Feels Love?
They also performed the song on their world tour promoting their fourth album Standing on the Shoulder of Giants in the early s. A live version was included on their live album Familiar to Millions.
In , Dana Fuchs performed the song in the film Across the Universe and Stereophonics included a version on their CD single " It Means Nothing ". Also in , Beatallica recorded a parody called "Helvester of Skelter", which also was a parody of the Metallica song " Harvester of Sorrow ".
Since , McCartney has frequently performed "Helter Skelter" in concert. The song featured in the set lists for his '04 Summer Tour , The 'US' Tour , Summer Live '09 , the Good Evening Europe Tour , the Up and Coming Tour —11 and the On the Run Tour — In the last tours, the song has been generally inserted on the third encore, which is the last time the band enters the stage.
It is usually the last but one song, performed after " Yesterday " and before the final medley including " The End ".
McCartney played the song on his One on One Tour at Fenway Park on 17 July accompanied by the Grateful Dead 's Bob Weir and New England Patriots football player Rob Gronkowski.
McCartney performed the song live at the 48th Annual Grammy Awards on 8 February at the Staples Center in Los Angeles. In , he performed it live on top of the Ed Sullivan Theater during his appearance on the Late Show with David Letterman.

By that time, most of the Family was at the group's camp in the Death Valley area searching for the Bottomless Pit.
Law officers raided the desert redoubts in the second week of October and found the Family with stolen vehicles, and they arrested Manson and several others.
In October , the prosecution offered testimony about the door during Manson's trial for the Tate-LaBianca murders , but only the "Helter Skelter" inscription seems to have been noted.
Tex Watson had left the desert camp and gone on to separate himself from the Family, but he bought a cassette recording of Abbey Road and played it continuously while walking for miles across the desert to rejoin the Family; he was hoping to see what The Beatles might have to tell him.
He turned back at the last moment, and an old prospector informed him that the arrests had taken place. Watson returned to Texas where he was arrested for the Tate-LaBianca murders a month later.
Three people were attacked on the beach near Santa Barbara, California in late July while Manson was on trial, two of them fatally.
One of the Manson girls spoke of this incident as " Maxwell's Silver Hammer ", an Abbey Road song that plainly is about homicidal madness.
Manson entranced youths of the s, and he and his Family initially represented a peaceful, harmonious, and loving revolution to strive for a better world.
Watson was with Manson when he first heard the White Album, and he took part in the Tate murders and the LaBianca murders.
He is the only killer to participate directly in every one of the seven homicides, and he was the sole killer of at least three of the victims.
By that time, Manson's prophecy had captured the group's imagination, but Watson took a while to grasp its details.
Although I got it in bits and pieces, some from the women and some from Manson himself, it turned out to be a remarkably complicated yet consistent thing that he [Manson] had discovered and developed in the three months we'd been apart.
Manson was permitted to testify at his trial for the Tate-LaBianca murders, after the defendants' attorneys had attempted to rest their cases, without calling a single witness.
