THE FILM DETECTIVE PROUDLY PRESENTS...

THE OTHER SIDE OF MADNESS (1971)

COMING TO BLU-RAY & DVD NOVEMBER 10, 2020

A Time Capsule into the Manson Murders That Shocked the World

Available on limited-edition Blu-ray or DVD Nov. 10—marking the 50th anniversary of its original release—The Other Side of Madness was the first cinematic depiction of the Manson murders, filmed so astonishingly close to the time of the events that the Manson trial was still in progress. Portrayed as a modern “noir,” it proved so shocking to audiences at the time that the film was banned in Los Angeles.


Superbly photographed and directed by award-winning filmmaker Frank Howard and produced by Wade Williams, the film was partially shot in Kansas City with a cast of mostly unknown actors. The Other Side of Madness transports audiences closer to the real events than most recreations have dared to go, partially filmed at the famed Spahn Ranch before the compound was destroyed by fire in the ‘70s. Selections from the original motion picture soundtrack, written and performed by Charles Manson, will be offered on a limited-release Bonus CD included with the
purchase of the collector’s deluxe anniversary edition Blu-ray or DVD.
