Loosely based on 'Herff Applewhite' (co-founder) and the cult known as "The Two" or the UFO Missionaries. His partner died in 1985 and Herff continued leading the group. Sometime between 1994-1996 the group adopted the name "Heaven's Gate". Their theology had changed somewhat by this time since the co-leaders death. See more »
This movie was actually based on the Heaven's Gate cult that up and committed mass suicide in San Diego in 1997. The characters played by Pointer and Forsythe are based on Ti and Do, leaders of the UFO cult. Although the movie is profoundly hokey, it's a pretty chilling thing to watch when you realize that it's based on a genuine cult and sort of illustrates exactly what their plans were 15 years before they decided to act on them.
