|Charlie or Felix Cavaliere?|
|Now this guy DOES sort look like Tex Watson|
Even more creepy is they even got the real Charlie Manson's music in the film with one track (the wiggy "Mechanical Man")! Beyond the cast looking like members of the Family the people playing their victims look like the actual persons they are playing in many instances as well. The layout of the house/yard for the Sharon Tate slaying scene looks as if it had been filmed on the actual location at 10050 Cielo Drive in Benedict Canyon (it wasn't). The scene is quite distrubing, more so than the 1976 TV movie "Helter Skelter" (featuring Beatles music by a band called "Rain"!) because it's graphic without resorting to slasher style gore and occurs pretty much the way we've all read it going down.
