Interview: Author Ian Cooper talks ‘The Manson Family on Film & TV’

by Stuart Wright

Host Stuart Wright talks to author and screenwriter Ian Cooper about his new book Family Values: The Manson Family on Film and TV (McFarland) – out August 2018.

Ian Cooper will be speaking in more detail on this topic at his lecture “NO SENSE MAKES SENSE: GURUS, CULTS, MURDER AND MOVIES” on May 17th 2018 at The Miskatonic Institute Of Horror Studies (The Horse Hospital, Colonade, London, WC1N 1JD). Ticket details are here www.miskatonic-london.com/events/no-se…-and-movies/

This class will examine the rise of alternative religious movements/cults in California in the 1960s and 70s which spawned an ongoing sub-genre of the horror film. The focus will be on the Manson Family, not only the most notorious of these groups but also the one with the greatest cultural impact.

Ian’s other books include Devil´s Advocates: Witchfinder General (Auteur 2011), Cultographies: Bring me the Head of Alfredo Garcia (Wallflower Press 2012) and Frightmares: A History of British Horror (2016). He has also written for edited collections on subjects including early 70s vampire films and the cult appeal of Klaus Kinski. And coming soon in 2018: Devil´s Advocates: Frenzy (Auteur) and Family Values: The Manson Family on Film and TV (McFarland).
