A year before Sharon Tate was killed by the Manson family, she told Fate magazine about a dream she had over a year beforehand. She was staying on at her then boyfriend Jay Sebring’s house while he was away on business in New York City.
Sebring’s house was once owned by Hollywood agent Paul Bern, who married Jean Harlow. Shortly after the actress left him, he was found dead with a gun shot in 1932 in that very house. Some say it might not have been suicide. We will never know.
Fast forward 45 years later, Tate went upstairs to try to go to sleep. She saw a creepy little man in front of her. Scared of what she just saw, she went downstairs to calm down. When she did, she saw a someone tied the staircase with their neck cut open. She could not tell if it was Sebring or herself, but it haunted her for the rest of her life.
On August 8, 1969, Tate and Sebring were murdered by members of the Manson family. People have wondered if she had a premonition about her death. According to Deadline, The Haunting of Sharon Tate is going to tell that story and Hilary Duff is playing the doomed actress, who was murdered two weeks before she gave birth to what would have been her child with husband Roman Polanski.
When it comes to Duff in the title role, the makeup department did a remarkable job transforming her into the beautiful actress. So much so, you can barely tell that it is her. She really captured her essence.
When this film comes out, I will be there on opening day. As you can tell this story has always fascinated me.
