2019 saw two films released surrounding the same events
regarding Sharon Tate & the Manson family, the first was Once Upon A Time In Hollywood, and the second was this piece of shit.
In the days leading up to the infamous murders at Cielo Drive,
Sharon Tate (played by the woefully miscast Hilary Duff) has a series of dreams and premonitions where she portents her own murder. Her friends brush this off as pregnancy hormones, but she still
tries to delve more into the mysterious omens she's receiving, before the fateful visit by the Manson Family members.
The film concludes with its own version of events, not too
dissimilar to what Quentin Tarantino did in his own film, though this is impossible to take seriously due to the amateurish direction, awful script and dreadful performances.
