Doctor Who is Charles Manson in Charlie Says

Doctor Who is Charles Manson? Do you need any other reason to get your hands on Charlie Says? Director Mary Harron once gave us the future Batman as a serial killing Wall Streeter in American Psycho. Now she goes deep into the nightmare of Manson and his female followers. The film explores the women who killed for Charlie on those horrible nights in Los Angeles. The film questions their motivations and are they always going to be the monsters. The movie comes to Blu-ray and DVD on August 6. Here’s the press release from Scream Factory:

“Chilling. A fascinating and feminist exploration of Manson’s first victims: the girls themselves.” – Kate Walsh, Los Angeles Times

Charlie Says

Shocking Drama Makes Its Blu-ray and DVD Debut August 6th, 2019 from Shout! Factory

Years after the shocking murders that made the name Charles Manson synonymous with pure evil, the three women who killed for him — Leslie Van Houten (Hannah Murray, Game Of Thrones), Patricia Krenwinkel (Sosie Bacon, 13 Reasons Why), and Susan Atkins (Marianne Rendón, Imposters) — remain under the spell of the infamous cult leader (Matt Smith, Doctor Who, The Crown). This fascinating take on the infamous story makes its Blu-ray and DVD debut August 6th, 2019 from Shout! Factory, in conjunction with IFC Films. Fans can pre-order their copies now by visiting

Confined to an isolated cellblock in a California penitentiary, the trio seems destined to live out the rest of their lives under the delusion that their crimes were part of a cosmic plan — until empathetic graduate student Karlene Faith (Merritt Wever, Nurse Jackie) is enlisted to rehabilitate them. Convinced that the prisoners are not the inhuman monsters the world believes them to be, Karlene begins the arduous process of breaking down the psychological barriers erected by Manson. But are the women ready to confront the horror of what they did? Boundary pushing auteur Mary Harron (American Psycho, I Shot Andy Warhol) presents a provocative new perspective on one of the most notorious crimes of the 20th century.
