The Haunting Of Sharon Tate

The Haunting Of Sharon Tate,  the Daniel Farrands-directed film that reimagines the events that led to the 1969 murder of the pregnant Sharon Tate by members of Charles Manson’s cult at her Hollywood home is coming out soon... and the trailer has dropped.

In August 1969, Sharon Tate, then married to director Roman Polanski, was murdered in her Los Angeles home while she was eight-and-a-half months pregnant. Four other people were murdered in the same killing spree, all committed by followers of Charles Manson. Hilary Duff stars as Tate in an upcoming movie about the murders and we finally have a first look.

This film, not to be confused with Quentin Tarantino‘s Once Upon A Time In Hollywood starring Brad Pitt and Leonardo DiCaprio that is also due out soon, takes a look at the last days leading up to Tate's murder from her point of view and was inspired by a quote from an interview with her that was conducted one year before her death.

In the interview, Tate opened up about nightmares she had of ghosts and predicted that she would be killed.

“I guess you could say I live in a fairytale,” which is referring to her husband, director Roman Polanski, and their fabulous house, and let's not hope foreshadowing this movie.

The movie also features Jonathan Bennett as celebrity hairstylist Jay Sebring, and model-actress-heiress Lydia Hearst as heiress Abigail Folger.

Take a look:

There is currently no release date for The Haunting of Sharon Tate, and let's just say this version Hopefully, the Once Upon A Time In Hollywood trailer will drop soon as a sort of pallet cleanser.

We recently went to the Sharon Tate Auction where we got to see some of Sharon's real clothes.

Being around Sharon's stuff certainly made this story that we have all heard all of our lives more real. 

 Debra Tate
We spent a lot of time that evening talking to Sharon's sister Debra Tate, who gave us her personal accounts of that horrible evening.  

This tragedy really did change Los Angeles and the world forever.  Innocence was over. The murders had put an end to the open-door, free love policy that had allowed the magical intermingling of the mid-to-late ’60s.

I do know that they did shoot a scene at El Coyote restaurant for this film, so that is certainly a good thing and that is why we ❤️this.   Let's just hope the film is a bit better than the trailer.  See you at the movies.  xoxoxo
