The Haunting of Sharon Tate, released in 2019, is a horror-thriller movie starring Hilary Duff, Jonathan Bennett, and Lydia Hearst. The movie is a fictional retelling of the last days of actress Sharon Tate before her brutal murder by followers of Charles Manson in August 1969. Despite a significant change in the events leading to Sharon Tate's death, the movie follows the haunting events that unfolded in her life before her demise.

Hilary Duff stars as Sharon Tate, a pregnant actress, who is about to move into a new house on Cielo Drive in Los Angeles with her husband, Roman Polanski (played by Rafal Zawierucha), and friends, Wojciech Frykowski (played by Pawel Szajda) and Abigail Folger (played by Lydia Hearst). The movie's story takes place in the days leading up to the Manson murders, during which Sharon Tate has increasingly disturbing visions and premonitions of her brutal fate.

Jonathan Bennett plays Jay Sebring, Sharon Tate's ex-boyfriend, who is still in love with her and tries to protect her from the haunting visions. Lydia Hearst plays Abigail Folger, a wealthy heiress and friend of Sharon Tate, who is also experiencing the same supernatural occurrences as Sharon.

As the days go by, the terrifying visions increase in intensity, causing Sharon to question her sanity and her ability to protect her unborn child. She becomes convinced that her fate is predetermined and that her death is imminent. The movie explores the psychological trauma and fear that Sharon Tate experienced and captures the essence of the horror of her final days.

The movie's director, Daniel Farrands, creates an eerie atmosphere through his use of lighting, sound design, and cinematography that captures the sense of dread and hopelessness that Sharon felt during her last few days. The movie's score is haunting and effectively adds to the ominous tone of the film.

The Haunting of Sharon Tate, despite its controversial reimagining of the events that led to Sharon Tate's death, does a good job of creating a sense of tension and fear. The movie raises questions about the nature of fate, premonitions, and the human psyche's ability to sense danger. The movie's portrayal of Sharon Tate as a strong, independent woman dealing with supernatural forces that are beyond her control is particularly interesting.

Hilary Duff delivers a strong performance as Sharon Tate, effectively portraying the character's strength and vulnerability. Lydia Hearst and Jonathan Bennett also give compelling performances as Abigail Folger and Jay Sebring.

In conclusion, The Haunting of Sharon Tate is a well-crafted horror-thriller movie that provides an intricate narrative of the actress's final moments before her untimely death. The movie's controversial retelling may raise some eyebrows, but the careful execution of the story and the performances of the lead cast members make for an engrossing viewing experience.

The Haunting of Sharon Tate is a 2019 horror movie with a runtime of 1 hour and 34 minutes. It has received poor reviews from critics and viewers, who have given it an IMDb score of 2.9 and a MetaScore of 8.
