    Bloody Murders Rekindle Charles Manson Horror 

    This is an AP article from July 2, 1981. Not much new info here except for the sensationalized Manson headline.ย For a brief moment, the media could not help but speculate that they had a random act of violence on their hands. I don’t believe that the cops ever thought it was true.

    I have posted articles before about the man taken from the scene for questioning. He was in the house, and seemed to have toured each room. He was likely a customer or a dealer stopping by to score. I wonder who the hell it was? Gopher or Cherokee? Despite the promise to move away, and to keep a low profile, Ronnie had made some phone calls after the robbery announcing that they had stuff to sell. That helps explain most of the foot traffic at Wonderland on July 1st.

    They can't pin this one on Squeaky! She was in prison at the time.

    They can’t pin this one on Squeaky! She was in prison at the time for trying to kill President Ford. I believe she is out of the joint now.

    Just a cool Wonderland map.

      My guess is that their doper customers were getting sick (literally) and tired of the phone always ringing out that they just took it upon themselves to go straight over to the house. I wonder if any of them actually managed to get any drugs after further ransacking the joint or whether Diles and his hoods got all the loot back. In the police video there were used syringes on Ron’s dresser so if they weren’t his that would mean people were shooting up right there next to his dead body. Now that’s really f&%$d up!
      On a side note the film takes a bit of artistic license with the scene where Lind gets his secret stash from under the kitchen sink.

        And the movie has Holmes going back in to the house, when he describes his version of events. “Why would I go back?” Then, there’s a flash scene of him smoking a rock in one of the bloody bedrooms while bathed in morning sunlight.

          Oh yes!.. That’s such a great cutaway shot – really ominous. I love how sheepishly he delivers that line too.. kinda nails Holmes as the liar extraordinaire in such a simple scene. The beauty of “Wonderland” is that it’s a giant homage to Kurosawa’s 1950 masterpiece “Rashomon”. In that film we have a crime that’s told from the perspective of several different characters and as the audience we don’t know who to believe. Such a great storytelling device and in turn so incredibly powerful. Have you seen it John? James Cox owes so much to this film!

        No, I need to see Rashomon! It’s on my list…I order all dvd’s from Amazon. I’m gonna buy it.

      I have always wondered about that. You would have to be really #*^#ed up to walk through that scene, look for some drugs, luckily finding some and then shooting up right over the dead bodies. Then just leave Susan there moaning for help. As far as the movie goes, it really wouldn’t surprise me all that much if Holmes went back there knowing there was probably still some dope and then standing there smoking a rock over the bodies. No conscience at that point.

    The Hopewell Haunting – One of the Scariest Films I’ve EVER SEEN IN MY LIFE 

    • Dane Sears 2:04 pm on August 23, 2012 Permalink | Reply

      Oh man thank you so much for posting my short film John! To have someone say it’s one of the scariest films they’ve ever seen is the ultimate complement. Thank you so much man and just a quick question, how did you find the film? I always find it fascinating when people from out of state stumble across it ๐Ÿ™‚

      Oh yea and by the way, I am currently remaking this film into a bigger and better feature-length film that will serve as my first feature and hopefully jump start my career. It’s essentially the same story line and concept but now with more characters, story and spookiness to fill that 90 minute mark. I’ve been working on it for years, writing and rewriting and finally its at a point where it is ready to be made and I just recently put up a fundraising campaign to help find people out there who would be willing to help us get it made. So whenever you get a minute, please check out the campaign and let me know what you think! I’ve got a lot of info on the original on there as well as some behind the scenes video and pictures that I think you will enjoy.

      The campaign is located at:

      Also, if you want to see the short film with the sound corrected(youtube corrupted some sound and basically made it silent), the whole thing is located on my vimeo page at: http://www.vimeo.com/quickhillfilms/hopewellhaunting

      Thanks so much for the positive comment as I always quote it when promoting the film ๐Ÿ™‚ Also, thanks again for finding the film and posting it!

        Your welcome, Dane.
        About 2 years ago, a friend sent me the link.
        I’m glad I watched it at work, and not late at night.

        Good luck with the project!!
