The Other Side of Madness is a 1971 film directed by Frank Howard and produced by Wade Williams. The film is based on the crimes of the Manson Family, made while the trial was still ongoing.[1] In an attempt to cash-in on the 1976 TV movie Helter Skelter, the movie was breifly re-released under the title The Helter Skelter Murders.


The majority of the film takes place in flashbacks from the perspective of various witnesses during the Manson trial. The entire second half of the film is dedicated to the Tate murders, attempting to recreate them based on the evidence available to the public at the time.


The film received a DVD release, under the Helter Skelter Murders title, on October 2nd, 2001.[2] The film will be release under its original title on both DVD and Blu-ray on November 10th, 2020.[3]
