'The Haunting Of Sharon Tate' Trailer: Sharon Tate's Murder Is Now Just Another Supernatural Horror Movie

Ugh, The Haunting of Sharon Tate. Hollywood loves finding any thin possible reason to label a horror movie as "based on a true story", but this stretches the bounds of credibility to the breaking point. Basically, the film takes Sharon Tate's murder, while she was pregnant mind you, at the hands of the vicious Manson Family and uses it as the basis for a tasteless supernatural thriller that probably could've been done just as effectively without using the late actress.

Returning to the big screen because I assume she left (?) is Hilary Duff in the role of Tate, joined by Jonathan Bennett and model/actress Lydia Hearst. Behind the camera is Daniel Farrands. He also wrote the script, and decided the only thing that could make this film a little more groan-worthy was to include actual archived footage of Tate and Manson, the latter deserving no more publicity and the former deserving to rest in peace without being the subject of a jump-scare flick.

Here's the synopsis: Pregnant with director Roman Polanski’s child and awaiting his return from Europe, 26-year-old Hollywood actress Sharon Tate becomes plagued by visions of her imminent death.

The Haunting of Sharon Tate hits theaters and VOD on April 15th.
