In Quentin Tarantino's Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, Brad Pitt plays a stuntman who has a run-in with the Manson family. The character is said to be an amalgam of several real life stuntmen, including Gary Kent, who had his own encounter with Charles Manson while working on Al Adamson's Satan's Sadists at the infamous Spahn ranch.

Director Joe O’Connell’s documentary Danger God tells Kent's story, featuring interviews with Monte Hellman, Duane Eddy, Richard Rush, Marc Singer and more.

Danger God is available now on VOD, with a DVD release September 17th.

Check out the trailer below.


The official synopsis reads:

Professional stuntman Gary Kent has made a hard-earned name for himself in over 50 years of falling, burning, jumping, fighting and breaking himself for some of the most cherished independent and B-movies of the 20th Century. This is his story, from the anything goes days of the drive-in era, including his run in with Charles Manson and his infamous family, to his personal battles and triumphs with health, alcoholism and love.
