EXCLUSIVE: Behind the Scenes as Eerie 'Manson's Lost Girls' Enters the Minds of Charles Manson's Followers


The Lifetime TV movie depicts the little-known world of the infamous Manson family, and ET talked to the cast about how they embodied their characters. 

 

From Venus (from Lifetime's press release, January 2016) The psychedelic summer of 1969 comes to life in the Lifetime Original Movie, Manson's Lost Girls, featuring the next generation of Hollywood stars MacKenzie Mauzy, (Into the Woods), Eden Brolin (I Dream Too Much), Greer Grammer (Awkward) and Christian Madsen (Divergent). Premiering Saturday, February 6 at 8pm ET/PT, the film paints a new picture of Charles Manson's (Jeff Ward, The Mentalist) world, as told through the stories of Linda Kasabian (Mauzy) and the other women who fell under his demonic spell to create one of the most famous cults of all time. Brolin stars as Susan Atkins, Grammer is Leslie Van Houten, Madsen portrays Tex Watson, Grace Victoria Cox (Under the Dome) is Lynnette "Squeaky" Fromme, Isabel Shill (Orange is the New Black) stars as Patricia Krenwinkel and Garrett Coffey (Battle for Skyark) is Bobby Beausoleil. Manson's Lost Girls follows Linda as she first arrives at the seemingly idyllic Spahn Ranch hippie commune where she is embraced with open arms. Seduced by the group's free-love lifestyle, Linda revels in the sisterhood and acceptance. Taken with Manson, he soon draws her into criminal activities, including late-night "creepy crawls" to steal from lavish homes. Linda reluctantly becomes an accomplice in Manson's "Helter Skelter," a drug-fueled murder spree that included the brutal death of actress Sharon Tate. She ultimately breaks away and turns herself in as a witness for the prosecution and helps to convict Manson. With original 1960's music from iconic bands such as Donovan, The Turtles and CCR, the film captures the bohemian clothing, hairstyles and makeup of the time.

Thanks Venus for the heads up on this movie!

Well the movie hasn't even come out, and they've got facts wrong about Susan Atkins.

Oh well, I'll watch it.

Venus said...

I'm sure I'll watch it too--and then I'll probably wonder why I wasted my time, lol.

Venus said...

I'm sure I'll enjoy the music, especially since I LOVE the Turtles!

Venus said...

Eden Brolin is the daughter of Josh, granddaughter of James. Greer Grammer is the daughter of Kelsey.

I'm sure you're all THRILLED by that info, right??

Hey, my profile pic disappeared.....

Yeah Venus, Charlie's moving on up, just like George Jefferson. HA HA.

Josh Brolin's daughter, Kelsey Grammer's daughter & Virginia Madsen's nephew are in this movie. I guess the younger generation is getting into the TLB saga. When we oldsters retire, there will be a whole new young generation fighting over this stuff. LOL.

I'll enjoy the music too! :)

I know where's Pebbles???? Venus, reload your pic!

Venus said...

Let's see if this works....

Venus said...

obviously not.....

In that video of Manson talking, he says Leslie says, as she's stabbing "that woman" (she has a name Charlie), "at least you won't be sending your son to Vietnam".

As far as I know, Pat is the one who said that, not while stabbing "that woman" but while stating to others that on Sunday the family would come there for dinner and see what they did.

Venus, just re-upload your pic. See if that works.
