The Snuff Flicks buried in Death Valley

Weird.  They are making a movie on the mysterious death of Bobby Fuller.  He was the guy that wrote
"I fought the law". Very tragic the way he died.

For some reason they are throwing Charlie in the mix along with the missing snuff movies supposedly buried in Death Valley.  The snuff stuff might "hold the secret to Fuller's death."  I copied a couple of paragraphs for you below.
The Colonel is going to be on a rant.

it looks like James Marsden isn’t ready to just get sucked into the vacuum of generic films quite yet. Deadline reports that the actor will be playing famous cult leader (and decent musician) Charles Manson in The Dead Circus. The movie, written by Adam Davenport and John Kaye (who also wrote the novel), fictionalizes the very real and very mysterious death of singer Bobby Fuller, throwing in the Manson family as part of the conspiracy for giggles. 

With the help of a former Manson Family member who’s trying to put her past behind her, he finds out that the mystery of Fuller’s death may be solvable if he can find a series of snuff films the Family shot back in the 60′s, which have been buried in Death Valley, California


The Dead Circus is currently seeking financing with eyes on starting production this summer in Los Angeles.

So.... a true family member has stated that the mysterious snuff films do exist?

KEN- i can't figure it out either.

it says "fictionalizes" the very real and very mysterious death of singer Bobby Fuller, throwing in the Manson family as part of the conspiracy for giggles.

so i am thinking it is all fake.

The movie is based on a book called "The Dead Circus" - it is fiction, but the story wraps around real characters - Bobby Fuller's death and a fictional "ex family member" named Alice...the description of Goler Wash is very much fiction!

Thank you LightFoot.
This is the second Manson film in the making with a fictional
"Alice."
Manson girls also has a fictional
"Alice" Rainer i think is her last name. Her role is a CNN type reporter.

Don't be confused...just read the book! Yes, fiction of course, however just go to your local library and either pick up a copy of "The Dead Circus" or else order it from the inter-library loan. While you're at it, try "Stars Screaming" too. Both are worth it.

I fear, however, that the movie version will be much more pared down than the book.

I also have read "The Dead Circus".
It's fiction but I really enjoyed it.

just ordered my copy for this summer's reading list. :)

If you're going to hide a snuff film why do you need to drive way the hell out into the desert and climb a nearly impassable gully road in order to bury it? Couldn't you just burn it?

because no sense makes sense.
i think they wanted to keep them rather then destory them.
