With the release of Quentin Tarantino’s Once Upon a Time in Hollywood and its retelling of the Manson murders dredging traumatic history back into the public eye, we sat down to watch three movies released in the decade following the horrifying and world-changing events of August 1969. Two of them are horror movies using Manson figures as catalysts for gruesome violence (I Drink Your Blood, Deathmaster) and the third is a made-for-TV retelling of the lengthy Manson trial that eventually indicted the hippie guru and his followers (Helter Skelter).
