Directed and written by Daniel Farrands (The Haunting in Connecticut, The Amityville Murders), starring Hilary Duff as Sharon Tate, this telling focuses on the days leading up to Tate's murder, and claims she had a prophetic dream about her own death.

Sharon Tate was a Hollywood movie star who was brutally murdered while pregnant at 26 in 1969.

"Had the incredible opportunity of playing Sharon Tate the past two weeks in an independent movie", she captioned the photo. "She was an wonderful woman and it was a true honor", Duff captioned the shot, which finds her with an on-the-money smokey eye straight from the '60s and a big, blond updo.

But Debra Tate, Sharon's sister, told People that she thinks "it's classless" and "exploitative".

The Crown actor Matt Smith has been cast to play Charles Manson in the film, Charlie Says, which is set to arrive next year to mark the 50th anniversary of the infamous murders.

Duff has yet to respond to Tate's comments-they were, after all, published less than 12 hours ago, at 1:29 a.m. -but since her initial Tate-related post, she's definitely publicly been more respectful about playing the role.

Per reports, Roman Polanski's late wife revealed she had dreams about ghosts haunting her home and predicted she'd die at the hands of a satanic cult. "It would have been nice if someone had contacted me" about the project, she said. 'I checked with all of her living friends. This is "total fabrication", Debra says. None of her friends had any knowledge of this.

Debra Tate was 16 when her older sister was murdered.

In the house with her at the time were Abigail Folger, Wojciech Frykowski, Jay Sebring, Steven Parent and Bill Garretson.

After being convicted of the murders, Manson was sent to California's Corcoran State Prison to serve time for nine life sentences. Whatever the reason, we're suddenly facing three different movie takes on the Manson Family killings.

Tate was eight-and-a-half months pregnant with their first child when she was killed.
