For those unfamiliar, here’s the official synopsis for the dark comedy…
MANSON FAMILY VACATION takes two very different siblings on a road trip that tests the limits of brotherly love. A man’s comfortable life in Los Angeles is disrupted when his estranged brother comes to town to visit the infamous Manson Family kill sites. Together, the mismatched brothers journey from the Hollywood Hills to the Mojave Desert, and into the modern-day world of notorious cult leader and mass murderer Charles Manson.
The Fango screening of MANSON FAMILY VACATION will be a free show; to obtain tickets, send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org. You must list “MANSON” as your subject line and provide us your full name. Offer is good for you and one guest. Names will be checked at the door. Offer is first come, first served, and we will confirm your RSVP. Seating is not guaranteed, however. MANSON FAMILY VACATION can currently be found on iTunes & Digital VOD via The Orchard and debuts on Netflix October 27th.
A hit at the SXSW, Fantasia and other international film festivals, MANSON FAMILY VACATION has been winning twisted followers from all over the world. Indiewire called the film “Unexpected and charming,” and Slant said MANSON FAMILY VACATION is “Disarmingly unpredictable.” Twitch Film rated the movie “One of the year’s standout achievements,” and writing in the Fantasia program guide, FANGO’s Heather Buckley raved, “The Duplass Brothers (BAD MILO) deliver another boundary-testing black comedy with bite.”
