"This is the end, beautiful friend." With these haunting words, a forest explodes into a hellish fury. The words are uttered by Jim Morrison and accompanied by an eerie dirge performed by Ray Manzarek, Robby Krieger and John Densmore. "The End" sets the mood for a tale of darkness, terror, madness and death in Vietnam. "The horror. The horror."
