Dracula. The fictional count of the undead who emerges by night to claim the blood of his victims. Since his first appearance in the classic 1897 novel, his name has become synonymous with vampire legend.
Charles Manson. Career criminal, cult guru, cold-blooded killer. Since his apprehension and conviction in 1971, his name has become synonymous with the dark side of sixties counterculture.
In Manson & Dracula: Closer Than We Think, acclaimed filmmaker BC Fourteen takes a deep dive down the rabbit hole to shine a light on the dark deeds and lasting legacies of both these notorious figures.
From mingling undetected in society’s midst, to their very name striking terror in the hearts of men. From brainwashed brides to bedroom break-ins. From plotting mayhem in isolated compounds to brazen bloodlust for innocent victims.
Winding through the realms of both dark fiction and stark reality, using rare archival footage and famous clips from some of the most frightening films of all time, Manson & Dracula: Closer Than We Think compares and contrasts the shocking similarities in both Manson’s and Dracula’s modi operandi, nightmarish trajectories and ultimate downfalls.
Charles Manson. Count Dracula. Two monsters in two different worlds. But, as we’ll soon discover…they’re closer than we think.
Coming soon to streaming and DVD…
