Disturbing Must See!
11 October 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

For those of us who are fascinated by the Jonestown tragedy, this documentary will shed some light on it's mystery with Stephan Jones, Jackie Speier, Hue Fortson Jr., Eugene Smith, Timothy Carter, Terri Buford, Grace Stoen, Laura Johnston Kohl, Tim Reiterman, Marshall Kilduff, as well as others who recall the tragedy in 1978. The Jonestown tragedy is beyond explanation and understanding. I have spent the last year researching and reading it on my own. It's a compelling story that was made into a mini-series so quickly after it happened without examining the facts. This documentary gives us a closer look at the Peoples Temple, Jim Jones, and the ultimate fate that he led 900 of his followers in Guyana.
