Manson: The Women
Nearly 50 years since one of the most notorious killing sprees in America rocked the nation, questions surrounding the illusive Manson Family remain. To understand exactly how one of the most daunting madmen in history charmed his way into the lives of the women who formed his family, this compelling two-hour special takes a deep dive into their psyches through the lens of the counterculture movement that swept the 1960s. Lynette “Squeaky” Fromme, Sandra “Blue” Good, Catherine “Gypsy” Share and Dianne “Snake” Lake recount their experiences with Manson, life on Spahn Ranch and their leader’s eventual descent into madness. Their candid, in-depth interviews provide a unique perspective on what it meant to be a part of the infamous Manson Family and vividly depict the collapse of a freewheeling family whose leader groomed a few of its own to commit murder.
