The Manson Family

 (2003)

The Manson Family Blu-ray delivers great video and superb audio in this fan-pleasing Blu-ray release

Young hippie runaways form a cult known as the Family. Their leader is Charles Manson, a madman convinced that a race war will break out in America. Endless drugs and Manson's delusions drive the Family to commit one of the most notorious crimes of the twentieth century.

For more about The Manson Family and the The Manson Family Blu-ray release, see the The Manson Family Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 3.5 out of 5.

The Manson Family Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

The Manson Family is presented on Blu-ray courtesy of Severin Films with an AVC encoded 1080p transfer in 1.34:1. Viewers coming to this feature without any foreknowledge of what Van Bebber was trying to accomplish may think this transfer is absolutely botched, but that misses the point in terms of both format (16mm and video) and some post- production tweaking Van Bebber employed. Van Bebber is playing with a number of different techniques here, including lots of intentional distressing of the image (which he did manually by scratching the stock with kitty litter, believe it or not), which gives quite a bit of the footage an aged, pretty badly damaged, look. But the bulk of this outing features a nicely naturally filmic appearance and the "undamaged" footage sports decent clarity and precision, given the context of the smaller millimeter format which obviously does not boast brilliant sharpness and which tends to be (expectedly) rather grainy most of the time. The film was shot on a shoestring and so does not have the crystal clear clarity of big budget outings shot either on film or HD video, but that relative softness is endemic to the elements and not a transfer issue.


The Manson Family Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

The Manson Family's lossless DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 mix is a riot of hallucinatory effects. Weird, static-filled chatter ping pongs around the side channels while a bizarrely anachronistic assortment of folk music accompanies montages of flower children and blood soaked horror (remember that Manson was a nascent musician himself, a friend of The Beach Boys' Dennis Wilson and an would-be Monkee). There is often an intentionally obfuscated aspect to the sound design here, especially in some of the drug fueled sequences. The clearest moments are in the quasi-documentary confessional elements, whether those be the "contemporary" reminiscences or the supposed "archival" footage which also crops up. Fidelity is excellent, and dynamic range is also rather wide.
