Charles Manson Superstar is a documentary film about Charles Manson, directed by Nikolas Schreck in 1989.
Most of the documentary (the entire interview) was filmed inside San Quentin Prison. Schreck narrated the segments while images were shown, and music played in the background. There was brief footage ofSpahn Ranch, and a short clip of James M. Mason being interviewed about the Universal Order, and Manson. Olivier Messiaen's "Death and Resurrection," Bobby Beausoleil's "Lucifer Rising," Krzysztof Penderecki's "Apocalypsis," and Anton La Vey's "The Satanic Mass," and Manson's "Lie & Completion," were the songs played during the film.
Manson's rusty saw Ohio accent stands in stark contrast to the calm monotone of Nikolas Schreck interview and narration style. Schreck seems to be lulling us into Manson's philosophy and recruiting for the Family. At the end of Charles Manson Superstar, we're left wondering: "Could we really have the messiah locked up in a nuthatch in California"? Text by Dave Taylor
