Manson Family Vacation (2015)
Movie Review by The Mortician
03.11.16

Manson Family Vacation (2015) I don't know, the wacky title lured me in and it was on Netflix Streaming, so I clicked PLAY and it was mildly interesting. Two of the worst, homely looking male actors I've ever laid eyes on (Jay Duplass and Linas Phillips- are these guys, like, REALLY, Hollywood actors?!?) play estranged brothers of a different type. Duplass is the successful yuppie type while Phillips is this wandering, jobless vagrant who comes to visit for a brief spell. The two have nothing in common except family issues that stem back to early childhood where we learn that Phillips was adopted. Phillips is obsessed with Charlie Manson and wants his brother to accompany him on a mini-vacation where they visit all the key Manson Family murder sights. Duplass agrees, and off they go on a pretty interesting journey to the actual sites where the brothers learn more and more about each other, share a joint, and eventually...kinda sorta bond John Hughes style. There is a twist or three at the end as Phillips is planning to join a current Manson cult that's still in existence, and some pretty interesting things happen from there. There's a brief scene where the boyz spy on a hot Manson groupie chick undressing through a window, for those on the prowl for female flesh (like me), but overall, with this bizarre concept, the movie becomes kind of a bonding, tearjerker type of thing, if you can believe that, from the story...I actually avoided reaching for the fast-forward button or stopping it, the bizarre scenario and acting kept my attention, despite, as I mentioned, the lead actors being so difficult to look at. Perhaps they resemble everyday people I encounter too much. I was even more impressed when I did a little search on this movie and found out it was funded by a Kickstarter campaign and had a mere $40k budget...So extra points for that, delivering a Charles Manson laced dramedy that wasn't too bad. You can do much worse, so check it out if you wanna see something a little odd and different.
