For its day and for its genre this is a pretty good film. It does show how easy it is for people to slide to the wrong side. It also did not simplistically link the 'sin of Sodom' to homosexuality (it was total self indulgence and inhospitality according the the Bible). One item that was historically incorrect was the idea that the ancient Hebrews were opposed to slavery. That would be wonderful if it had been true but unfortunately it was not.
AMC showed this in early July 99. If you are interested in seeing it, tune in.
