    We just signed a distribution deal for "Helter Skelter" and "Dearly Departed"!

    We can finally announce that we've signed a two-picture distribution deal with Echo Bridge Home Entertainment for "The Six Degrees of Helter Skelter" and "Dearly Departed: Vol. 1"!

    With any luck, a TV deal may come out of it, as well as some PPV. We'll see... For sure, they'll be able to distribute the two DVDs to a lot wider audience.

    Congrats to Scott and our production team and to everybody here who has contributed!

    I hope to become famous or infamous one day and when I die (hopefully no time soon) you all will be riding around in a white van talking about me and taking pictures of where I bit it.

    BTW Congrats on the great big deal. I am so happy for you!!!!!

    Thanks for the congrats, everybody. I think the distributor has set Oct. 6th as the release date for the DVD. We've updated a few sections in the film, added some new images that we licensed, and added a quick epilogue before the credits that shows the fire damage to Barker Ranch.

    And vote it up! People who haven't seen it are voting it down, methinks.

    Six Degrees distribution plans

    Here's an update from our new distributor. In addition to continuing to run on Amazon, on October 6th The Six Degrees of Helter Skelter DVD will be available in Best Buy, Walmart, Tower Video, and on iTunes.

    Soon after, it will be on PPV on Time Warner, Cox, Dish/Echostar and Brighthouse.

    Obviously, we're pretty impressed with our distributor, Echo Bridge Entertainment. They also picked up the first Dearly Departed film, but I don't think they have any big plans for it.

    Most of you here already have the film, and your copy will basically become a "limited edition" version (1 of about 1,600) because our distributor has changed the artwork. We've also added an epilogue about the recent Barker Ranch fire -- right before the end credits -- and updated a few pieces of voice-over after some minor discrepancies were pointed out to us, and swapped out a few photographs.

    Basically, between now and October 6th, the original DVD will cease to be available for purchase, replaced by the slightly-updated new version.

    Picked up Six Degrees of Helter Skelter ... at Wal Mart

    Not sure if any of you guys have noticed this, but Wal Mart's selling the Six Degrees of Helter Skelter with some movie called The Boneyard for $5! I'm loving it so far.

    Very good find!

    You'd be surprised what you can find in the WalMart 5 dollar bins and racks. Always good finds if your patient.

    I just rented this title on Comcast On Demand tonight for $4.99! It's SO interesting thus far as I'm extremely interested in the Manson Family and Helter Skelter. It's interesting to be able to see all of the locations discussed in the book.
