Charles Manson is known as one of the most dangerous and infamous serial killers in history and part of his story will be chronicled in the Lifetime movie "Manson's Lost Girls." The two-hour film tells the story of the summer of 1969 when a young Linda Kasabian (Mackenzie Mauzy) is first introduced to Manson's cult at the Spahn Ranch Los Angeles.
Linda is welcomed into the hippie community with open arms and soon becomes engulfed in a life of crime and murder. She goes with the girls on "creepy crawls," where they break into lavish homes to steal possessions, and becomes an accomplice in Manson's "Helter Skelter," a murder spree that leads to the death of actress Sharon Tate. Linda eventually decides she wants to leave the cult, dubbed "The Family," and helps bring down Manson.
Jeff Ward, who plays the serial killer in the Lifetime movie, recently opened up about the role telling Vanity Fair that he believes Manson was the only "evil one."
“I don’t think his girls were evil,” he said. “They were broken. Nothing is black and white with Manson’s girls. It’s much more complicated than that.”
"Manson's Lost Girls" also stars Eden Brolin as Susan Atkins, Greer Grammer as Leslie Van Houten, Christian Madsen as Tex Watson, Grace Victoria Cox as Lynette “Squeaky” Fromme, Isabel Shill as Patricia Krenwinkel and Garrett Coffey as Bobby Beausoleil.
