Last of the Manson Girls

Convinced there's more to the Manson murders than meets
the public eye, counterculture journalist Paul Krassner embarks on an LSD tinged investigation of the last of Manson's disciples: Brenda McCann, Sandra Good and Lynette "Squeaky" Fromme. What he finds could change how the world sees the 60s ... if he lives long enough to tell the story.

About the director: Loonie Martin’s first feature length film, Women’s Studies, was distributed nationally by R2 Films. In 2018, he completed his second feature film, The Last of the Manson Girls which went on to win Best of Fest at the South Carolina Underground Film Festival. The film also garnered him a Best Director award at the Tampa Bay Underground Film Festival as well as awards for Production Design and Best Supporting Actress. That same year, Martin's feature length screenplay Maynard Came Back made it the second round of the Austin Film Festival Dramatic Screenplay Competition.

His short film work has screened at the Fantasia International Film Festival, Temecula Valley Film Festival, Eerie Horror Film Festival, and West Chester Shorts Film Festival among others. For over ten years, Martin worked in Washington, D.C. and environs as an independent filmmaker on a variety of different projects; from short films and web series to corporate and government training videos, commercials, and narrative features. In 2016, he produced, wrote and directed a series of sexual harassment training videos for the U.S. Army. Currently, Martin is employed as an Instructor of Theatre & Film at Davis & Elkins College in Elkins, WV while also in development on his third feature length film.
