Unknown Powers (1978)
User ReviewsAdd a Review
There's an interesting segment on Jim Jones as a faith healer from San Francisco, who migrated and built his own town and named it Jonestown. Times were different then, less cynicism, more interest in exploring the spirital in church led to many poor desperate people latching on to scheisters like Jim Jones, who took all their money for himself,slept with all the women, then had them all murdered before he committed suicide.
The movie does have some real cheesy parts to it, but some actual footage of some of the stories and the scary background music put a good spook in you. This movie would be a pleasant distraction for a rainy afternoon, watch it to see what spiritual documentaries were like in the 70's.
