To say “The Haunting of Sharon Tate” is the worst movie of 2019 is the understatement to end all understatements.

Not only is there not a single redeeming quality, it is among the most morally reprehensible movies I’ve seen in ages.

It’s a “dramatic reimagining” of the Manson Family saga, where Sharon Tate is a psychic who is haunted by dreams and visions of Charles Manson in the week leading up to the incident.

The acting is appalling on every front, the direction is absolutely terrible, the lighting is atrocious, the score is as cliche as anything you’ll ever hear in a horror movie, there’s over-the-top CGI blood splatter to really make it feel extra gross. It also features news footage and interviews with the real Manson Family to feel extra extra gross. It is all absolutely god awful.

The movie is basically a series of conversations about fate during the day that are boring as hell, then a night scene in which is Tate having a nightmare about Manson. It’s garbage, it’s boring, it’s cliche.

And then it has a plot twist, because that’s what a movie about the Manson murders needed: a f***ing plot twist.

Daniel Farrands, the writer/director, has another movie in the pipeline, called “The Murder of Nicole Brown Simpson”. So, here’s how this review ends: F*** you Daniel Farrands. F*** you for thinking this is appropriate.
