Critic Reviews for Inside the Manson Cult: The Lost Tapes

All Critics (6) | Top Critics (2)

Given that they are usually narcissists as well as psychopaths, the publicity only feeds their egos...But Manson: The Lost Tapes had the distinction, to an extent, of keeping Charles Manson...largely out of the picture.

We may pretend our interest in true crime horror is justified by the need to understand as much as we can to prevent such enormities occurring again or some such nonsense - but actually we all know how base our interest really is.

This compelling documentary, the first of two, gave a unique insight into how a psychotic control freak could take possession of vulnerable people through hallucinogenic drugs and sexual abuse, and manipulate them for the rest of their lives.

Where the programme came into its own was in finding former cult members and showing them the tapes.

Manson: The Lost Tapes really is disquieting: a trip and a half of purest horror dressed up as social history.

September 27, 2018 | Full Review…

Works as a pop psychological study, but is loaded with too much filler.
