The official motion picture trailer for Hillary Duff’s controversial new film, “The Haunting of Sharon Tate,” was just released, and it looks pretty frightening. Inspired by the real-life murder of Hollywood starlet Sharon Tate in 1969, the film stars Hillary and actor Jonathan Bennett depicting a mix of actual, rumored and re-imagined events leading up the killing of the pregnant actress and four others by members of the Charles Manson cult.

The gruesome murders at Sharon Tate’s home had a profound impacton American society at the time. Many attributed the murders with being the unofficial end of the open and experimental 1960s, as fear and insecurity swept the traumatized LA-based entertainment community after news broke of the incident.

This particular movie treatment of the murders has already stirred quite a bit of controversy. Some critics have raised concerns about the filmakers’ decision to mix actual historical events with elements having limited factual evidence in order to create a movie that better fits a horror/thriller genre.

Others, including members of the Tate family, have accused the film’s producers, director and actors of further sensationalizing a real-world tragedy and being “classless” while marketing the film — even if the events depicted in the movie happened almost forty years ago.

“The Haunting of Sharon Tate” is currently in post-production. It has been tentatively scheduled for release in April 2019.
