The Peoples Temple Agricultural Project, better known by its informal name "Jonestown", was a remote settlement established by The People's Temple, a cult under the leadership of Reverend Jim Jones, in northwestern Guyana. It became internationally known when, on November 18th 1978, a total of 918 people died in the settlement, at the nearby airstrip in Port Kaituma, and at a Temple-run building in Georgetown, Guyana's capital city. The name of the settlement became synonymous with the incidents at those locations. Jonestown resulted in the largest single loss of American civilian life in a deliberate act until September 11, 2001. See more »
unusual take on the Jonestown Massacre
For all of its flaws this movie attempts to take the countlessly told story of Jonestown and add a new spin to it. Told mostly in flashback from the point of view of a survivor it comes off more as a crime documentary rather than a horror movie at times. But it goes to unexpected places with the story which is refreshing considering we've seen it told the same way so many times before.
