Estranged Brothers Bond Over True Crime in Indie Comedy Manson Family Vacation

Trailer FrenzyA special place to find the newest trailers for movies and TV shows you're craving.

Uptight Nick is less than thrilled when his slacker brother Conrad suddenly appears in Los Angeles, but he agrees to accompany the Helter Skelter-toting Conrad on a rambling tour of sites tied to the infamous life and crimes of Charles Manson. Ergo, Manson Family Vacation.


Here’s the official description:

“Nick Morgan (Jay Duplass) has it all: a loving family, a beautiful home and a successful law practice in Los Angeles. His estranged brother Conrad (Linas Phillips) has nothing but a backpack. When Conrad shows up for a surprise visit, all he wants to do in town is go to the infamous Manson Family murder sites. Reluctantly, Nick joins him and ends up on a road trip that leads the brothers into the modern-day world of Charles Manson.

Written and directed by J. Davis, MANSON FAMILY VACATION explores the lives of two brothers: one who’s devoted to his family; the other who’s obsessed with The Manson Family. Executive produced by the Duplass Brothers, the film also features Tobin Bell (Jigsaw from the SAW movies), Leonora Pitts and Davie-Blue.”

Okay ... as a Helter Skelter-toting type myself, who has also driven around Los Angeles gawking at Manson-related sites, I must watch this movie.

The film will be out on iTunes and On Demand October 6.

One of my Dad’s buddies is obsessed with serial killers. Probably because he thought that, aside from the killing, they have a lot in common.
