    Synopsis


    Leslie, My Name Is Evil
    A straight-laced chemist begins questioning society's standards and confronting his own darkest desires after falling for the all-American homecoming queen who joined a hippie death cult and made headlines for her murderous exploits. Perry (Gregory Smith) is your typical God-fearing American: A diligent academic who landed a good job at a chemical company before proposing to his Christian girlfriend Dorothy (Kristin Adams), he always did right by the Lord and his parents. But while Perry was always fortunate in life, Leslie was irreparably damaged by her parents' divorce, an abortion, and the assassination of President John F. Kennedy. Following Timothy Leary's advice to "tune in, turn on, and drop out," the former cheerleader joined up with charismatic cult leader Charles Manson and helped his gang slaughter an upstanding citizen in her own home. Now Perry has been chosen to serve on the jury that will decide Leslie's fate. The moment Perry and Leslie lock eyes in the courtroom, the sheltered chemist is hopelessly smitten. Could their wildly divergent paths somehow converge? The more Perry learns about Leslie the stronger his infatuation grows, and the more he begins to question the rules that society has imposed on them both. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

      Not a good film; makes light of a sick happening

      Not even a very gory or graphic film like it claims to be; focuses on "Leslie," one of Charles Manson's 'girls.' The protagonists, like the young boy who is on the jury trial, are sort of likable, but they don't fit in this movie. The touches of lighthearted comedy don't seem to mix with this brutal footnote in history. This film can't even remember its own title: The cover and the movie title in the film say "Manson - My Name Is Evil," but by the end credits the movie film has suddenly changed to "Leslie - My Name Is Evil." There are several moments in this 'drama' that will make you roll your eyes, particularly when the young boy juror is being shaken about in his hotel room -- he invokes God and promises to find Leslie guilty if God will 'save' him - then it immediately stops. Give me a break. Watch a good documentary or the 1970's film "Helter Skelter" for a more accurate, meatier story. Just another in one of Lionsgate DVD's long long line of poorly-made home video releases...
