We've had movies about the Manson Family before, but an overwhelming number of them seem to lack, how do I say this, grace and charm in the barest sense. Little more than a year after the murders, we received I Drink Your Blood, which was about satanic cult murders, but more importantly, absolutely bore the title I Drink Your Blood. In 1976, Helter Skelter was released, and it ended with a camera-facing monologue that basically said "And beware, for there could be a young Manson growing up in YOUR neighborhood." In 2004, we got The Manson Family, which was a fake documentary about Manson's followers, because sometimes when you have a really, really dumb and bad idea, you just gotta ride it out, maaaan.
Oh, and we got a puppet show too! Live Freaky! Die Freaky! came out in 2006, and as if it was created just for the purpose of making this article's point for me, it featured Green Day's Billie Joe Armstrong doing the voice of Manson. If you want to watch a naked puppet voiced by the guy who sang "Boulevard Of Broken Dreams" f**k another naked puppet while performing a song about being a Jesus figure, or you just want to have your week ruined by something and you don't care what it is, click here! You'll regret it, like, a lot.

Please stop doing you, Billie.
