Severin Films are proud to announce the Blu-ray debut of Jim VanBebber’s legendary, award-winning indie THE MANSON FAMILY on 10th June 2013, the 10th anniversary of its original release, uncut, and packed with brand new extras including VanBebber’s highly anticipated new short GATOR GREEN
THE MANSON FAMILY delivers an uncompromising, brutal vision of the collapse of the “Love Generation.” On a ranch outside of LA the hippie dream is perverting into something evil. What was once an oasis of free love and acid trips has become ground zero for a madman’s paranoid visions. An average group of kids, the “Family”, become engulfed in a delusional world where torment and slaughter is considered the path to righteousness. The Manson Family is a dizzying, rapid-fire vision of the sex and violence that unifies the misguided group, and at the direction of their leader, ends in a brutal spree leaving seven people dead in 48 hours. Now re-mastered in stunning HD for the first time ever in the UK. Extras include an all-new Director’s commentary, the brand new short GATOR GREEN, the feature length documentary THE VANBEBBER FAMILY on the film’s near-mythic production, an exclusive new interview with ex-Pantera frontman Philip Anselmo who scored music for the film and much more.
