Cult Leader
30 September 2014 | by (North America) – See all my reviews

Chilling episode looks at the bizarre but true facts surrounding the cult of the reverend Jim Jones, who ordered 900 of his followers to drink poisoned kool aid rather than face the authorities who represented the outside world that Jones desperately wanted to avoid, and brainwashed his people to fear as well, leading to their deaths, and his own suicide as well. First hand accounts from those former members who escaped his clutches in time are most fascinating, as are the actual words and film of Jim himself, who was described as a paranoid delusional sociopath who nonetheless had a certain charisma for lonely and forgotten people, who clung to his every word and instruction. Fascinating and still timely look at this man, and how this sort of thing could easily happen again...
