‘Manson, My Name is Evil’ Arriving on DVD This October

Cheerleader. Prom Queen. Manson Girl. Taking horror fans into the mind of a follower of a real-life serial killer, Manson, My Name is Evil (formerly Leslie, My Name is Evil), makes its American DVD debut October 12 from Lionsgate. An Official Selection of the 2009 Toronto International Film Festival, the film has been hailed as “close to perfection” in recapturing the horror of the murderer whose deeds coined the term ‘serial killing.’ The film stars Kristen Hager (TV’s “Valemont”), Gregory Smith (TV’s “Everwood”) and Ryan Robbins (TV’s “Caprica”). Charles Manson’s lust for blood left not only a trail of victims across Los Angeles, but also his minion’s lives shattered. Leslie (Hager), a former cheerleader and prom queen, is one such follower of the serial killer. During her murder trial, one of the jury members, Perry (Smith), a sheltered chemical engineer, finds himself falling in love with the dangerous woman charged.
