Helter Skelter Review


Good
Ultra-freaky Steve Railsback steals the show as Charles Manson in the 4-hour miniseries that outlines the trial of Manson and his "family" for the Sharon Tate and LaBianca murders in the early 1970s. Unfortunately, about 2 1/2 hours of this is filler, padding out the story to miniseries length. DiCenzo is capable as the prosecutor who put Manson away for life (actually: he got the death penalty, but California overturned the death penalty while he was on death row; his sentence was converted to life in prison). But ultimately, this is Railsback's story -- the tricks he does with his eyes alone are unforgettable.
