THE FILM DETECTIVE PROUDLY PRESENTS...

THE OTHER SIDE OF MADNESS (1971)

NOW AVAILABLE ON BLU-RAY AND DVD



A Time Capsule into the Manson Murders That Shocked the World

Available on limited-edition Blu-ray or DVD Nov. 24—marking the 50th anniversary of its original release—The Other Side of Madness was the first cinematic depiction of the Manson murders, filmed so astonishingly close to the time of the events that the Manson trial was still in progress. Portrayed as a modern “noir,” it proved so shocking to audiences at the time that the film was banned in Los Angeles.


Superbly photographed and directed by award-winning filmmaker Frank Howard and produced by Wade Williams, the film was partially shot in Kansas City with a cast of mostly unknown actors. The Other Side of Madness transports audiences closer to the real events than most recreations have dared to go, partially filmed at the famed Spahn Ranch before the compound was destroyed by fire in the ‘70s. Selections from the original motion picture soundtrack, written and performed by Charles Manson, will be offered on a limited-release Bonus CD included with the purchase of the collector’s deluxe anniversary edition Blu-ray or DVD.

Thanks Guys! I tried watching that movie and the first 10 or 15 minutes doesn't even have dialogue. It's hard to watch. I spent 8 minutes fast forwarding it.

Sigh....

Maybe I should fast foward about 30 minutes....

You know, I hate it when the TLB movies don't even try to replicate the murder houses. I've seen so many TLB movies about the Cielo Drive murders and the Waverly Drive murders and the houses aren't right. You'd think that movie production companies would do some research. Although I guess they either don't care, or they are just trying to pump out a "movie of the week" and don't care.

Katie, it looks like Paris and doctor wonderful are going to have an affair. That or Sheila is going to use her.

katie8753 said...

Yeah Beauders nothing lasts forever in TV Land. LOL. Sheila is probably going to encourage that affair to get rid of Steffy.

Meanwhile, back at the ranch, Eric is still acting like a creepy old man, living off the thought of his wife doing the horizontal mamba with his "employee". That part of the show has become "unwatchable". They have dipped to new lows!

I was watching a video about Falcon's Lair today and they mentioned the new Cielo Drive house. I was looking at those houses on the cliff. I can't believe those houses are still there. All it takes is a mudslide and they're all gone.

Also, I think Doris Duke was living at Falcon's Lair when the TLB murders happened. Did she hear or see anything????

beauders said...

Katie, do you know that Polanski and I Warren Beatty went all over Los Angeles, when the film was released and scarfed all the copies up because they were offended and destroyed them. One got away obviously.

beauders said...

Yes, I hope Eric at least tried the blue or yellow pill's before giving up his sex life. I hear 90 year old men use them and can still have sex.

katie8753 said...

Beauders I don't blame them for being offended. This movie is rough. Why did Warren Beatty care?

Eric is just being creepy!!!

beauders said...

This film was made in the early 70’s so things were a little raw. Beatty was I believe just helping out his friend.
