It would be Manson's response-and how he responded-that made people even more deeply disturbed with the convicted killer.

Charles Manson, the hippie cult leader who became the hypnotic-eyed face of evil across America after orchestrating the gruesome murders of pregnant actress Sharon Tate and six others in Los Angeles during the summer of 1969, died Sunday after almost a half-century in prison.

The interview took place in 1989, 20 years after Manson orchestrated the gruesome murders of pregnant actress Sharon Tate and six others in Los Angeles during the summer of 1969.

He directed his followers, known as the "Manson Family", to commit nine murders and he spent four decades in jail.

Earlier this month he was admitted to hospital in California and died of natural causes on Sunday. "The horrific murder of Sharon Tate and four of her friends by Charles Manson's cult of followers serves as a backdrop to the main story".

The cult leader believed in what he called "Helter Skelter", a term he took from the Beatles' song of the same name.

During a courtroom soliloquy during his highly publicized trial in 1970, Manson said, "These children that come at you with knives, they are your children. My cousin turned back to me and said, 'Wow, that guy's weird.' When we passed him and their whole group, she turned around again and said, 'That must be Charlie, ' and I said, 'Yeah... and Charlie's freaky!' We didn't think anything of it". "I was within his grasp just one year before he committed brutal murder in 1969", Cranston explained.

He maintained that he was innocent and that society was the one that was guilty, the Associated Press reports. Later, Manson transformed the "X" into a swastika.

Manson got the death penalty in 1971, but when that was ruled unconstitutional.it was changed to 9 consecutive life sentences. He had been denied parole 12 times. Another member, Charles "Tex" Watson, was convicted later.

The Manson Family was also responsible for numerous of other murders, as well as the attempted assassination of President Gerald Ford. Tarantino dispelled those rumors a few weeks ago, telling a reporter that "It's not Charles Manson, it's 1969".
