'Rise' was one of the inscriptions left in blood on the wall of the The LaBianca House (Los Angeles, CA). What dark blossom 'rose' from that bloody invocation?


Most everyone knows the story of the 1969 Manson Family killings. In the Los Angeles area between August 8th and 10th, 1969, a small group of Charles Manson's most ardent followers brutally murdered five people at the Benedict Canyon home of director Roman Polanski. The night after, Manson, displeased at the sloppiness of the previous night's murders, joined his followers for a second night of murder and mayhem at the home of grocery store owner Leno LaBianca and his wife, Rosemary, in the Los Feliz area of L.A.

Over the years, both murder sites became morbid tourist attractions - the Cielo Drive house in Benedict Canyon was razed soon after Nine Inch Nails founder Trent Reznor recorded his hit album The Downward Spiral there in 1993, but the Labianca house still stands and has, for the most part, been occupied since. After the murders, a Filipino couple (rumored to be friends of Imelda Marcos) bought the LaBianca house.
