Leslie, My Name Is Evil (2009)

AKA: Manson, My Name Is Evil

Starring: Gregory Smith, Kristen Hager, Ryan Robbins
Director: Reginald Harkema


Premise:
A young, male juror becomes smittened with Leslie, one of the Manson women on trial for the LiBianca murders.

My Take:
What we have here is a Mansion movie with nothing to do with Charlie Mansion. The whole scenario didn't work for me. The main focus is on Leslie and how this boy basically refuses to believe she was capable of these cruel and murderous acts. Very little screen time is actually focused on Charlie Manson, the commune, and the details of the trial. This leads to very little character development for Leslie and why she fell under Manson's spell, which makes it hard to gain any sympothy for her, which makes it hard to see why this juror would develop feelings for her.
