Jay Duplass & Linas Phillips Star in 'Manson Family Vacation' Trailer
"There's some really cool pictures of dead people!" The Orchard has debuted a trailer for the offbeat indie comedy Manson Family Vacation, about two estranged brothers who go on a weird trip together to visit the infamous Manson Family murder sites. Jay Duplass stars as one of the brothers, with Linas Phillips (Bass Ackwards) as the other. The synopsis describes it as a story about two brothers: "one who's devoted to his family; the other who's obsessed with The Manson Family." The film's cast also features Tobin Bell, Leonora Pitts and Davie-Blue. This is such an awkward comedy, I can see why they're sending it straight to VOD, definitely not for everyone. Not sure who it's for, but some may find some fun in this. Have at it.
Nick Morgan (Jay Duplass) has it all: a loving family, a beautiful home and a successful law practice in Los Angeles. His estranged brother Conrad (Linas Phillips) has nothing but a backpack. When Conrad shows up for a surprise visit, all he wants to do in town is go to the infamous Manson Family murder sites. Reluctantly, Nick joins him and ends up on a road trip that leads the brothers into the modern-day world of Charles Manson. Manson Family Vacation is both written and directed by newcomer J. Davis, making his feature debut after working on Soundtracker. Executed produced by the Duplass Brothers; premiered at the SXSW Film Festival. The Orchard opens Manson Family Vacation direct to VOD starting October 6th.

The Manson fan guy really reminds me of a man I grew up with. He overdosed on heroin and died 2 years ago, he had a similar madness to him.
