Nikolas & Zeena Schreck - The Manson File (2011)

This interview with Nikolas Schreck and Zeena Schreck (previously Zeena LaVey) was conducted over email in August 2011 by the french journalist and writer Max Lachaud.

This long interview was initiated by the issue of the french version of the publication of Schreck's « The Manson File : Myth and Reality of an Outlaw Shaman ». This new and greatly expanded edition of over 900 pages was released in France as « Le Dossier Manson : Mythe et réalité d’un chaman hors-la-loi » (Camion Noir  - April 2011).

In this book, Schreck delves deeply into previously unknown aspects of Charles Manson's life and the Tate-LaBianca murders to present evidence that the "Helter Skelter" theory put forth by prosecuting attorney Vincent Bugliosi had little if anything to do with the reality of the crimes.

According to Schreck, the murders of Sharon Tate and the others actually resulted from conventional underworld rivalries between drug dealer associates Charles Watson and Jay Sebring, who Schreck contends was linked to the Mafia.
Along with the themes of this book, the interview develops also many others subjects like Anton LaVey, the Church Of Satan and the former Schreck's industrial occult band Radio Werewolf.
