Storyline

In 1978 a remote settlement occupied by The People's Temple, an infamous cult led by Reverend Jim Jones, became the site of several murders and one of the biggest mass suicides in history. All members of the cult were supposed to die that day - but one survived. Ten years later, Sarah Logan is still plagued by terrifying nightmares. She decides to return to the abandoned settlement hoping to finally put the ghosts of the past to rest. But Sarah soon discovers the cult's former home has become a breeding ground for the supernatural. Now she faces a new fight for survival, battling malevolent entities in an attempt to once again escape the potent darkness of Jonestown. Written by North Bank Entertainment

Trivia

Although poisoned Flavor Aid was used in the mass suicides/murders at Jonestown, the drink mix was also commonly referred to as Kool-Aid. This has led to the phrase "drinking the Kool-Aid" entering popular culture, referring to a person or group holding an unquestioned belief, argument, or philosophy without critical examination.

unusual take on the Jonestown Massacre
25 April 2020 | by josiecrossSee all my reviews

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.
