Manson

The best synopsis of this horrible story…

Excellent & Comprehensive

Loved everything about this other than the horrifically cringey “voices” the host does when speaking as certain characters in the story, particularly the Manson girls. Either speak in your own voice or, if you must, please hire an actor.
