Movie Ad of the Week: THE OTHER SIDE OF MADNESS (1975) a.k.a. THE HELTER SKELTER MURDERS (1976)

This b&w quickie cash-in on the Tate-LaBianca killings, featuring songs by Sean Bonniwell of the Music Machine (as well as "Mechanical Man" by Charles Manson), was rated X by the MPAA in October 1971 but edited for content and awarded an R the following March. Above is the ad from the Mansfield, OH opening on September 26, 1975. The ad below is for an Albuquerque playdate over a year later (November 12, 1976), under the title THE HELTER SKELTER MURDERS.

Somebody, maybe Troma, released THE HELTER SKELTER MURDERS on DVD, so at least the film isn't lost.
