Helter Skelter is a 2004 television film directed by John Gray based on the murders of the Charles Manson Family.[1] The film was a remake of the 1976 Lorimar Television's two-part TV movie. Unlike the 1976 version, which focused mainly on the police investigation and the murder trial (as did the novel), this version focused mainly on Linda Kasabian's involvement with the Manson Family.
