March 14th, 2019 | by vBollywood Author

In the 1960s, Charles Manson formed a cult known as the Manson Family that was notorious and committed murders and assaults. The cult is also responsible for the murder of actor Sharon Tate. Charlie Says, the film based on the cult is less about Charles and more about three of his followers who were imprisoned after the murders.

The Crown actor Matt Smith plays Charles Manson here and from the trailer, it seems like that he only appears in the flashbacks as the girls are narrating their story to a woman in the prison. Hannah Murray, Sosie Bacon and Marianne Rendon are seen as the members of the Manson Family.

The trailer shows that the women in the cult believed in Manson with all their heart and “did what they had to do.” Merritt Wever plays Karlene Faith who wants to remind the girls of their life before they ever met Charles.

He was known as the head of a cult, known as the Manson family, which he directed to commit murders.

In the flashback, one of the ladies says that they don’t talk about their past. They are spellbound by Manson and believe their life started only after they met Charles. The trailer gives visuals of the way Charlie taught them to stab.

Quentin Tarantino’s upcoming film Once Upon a Time In Hollywood is also based on the Manson Family murders.

Charlie Says is directed by Mary Harron, famous for directing the Christian Bale film American Psycho. The film premiered at the Venice Film Festival in 2018 and is scheduled to release in May 2019
