I’ve watched several Jim Jones documentaries but this one hadcovered much more than the others. It had more originals tapes. Interviews and recording. Still seems totally bizarre that a thousand people would go with this mad man.

Really really enjoyed. I joined Sundance Now specifically to watch Ministry of Evil, but this doc caught my eye and I watched it first. I've never been able to find anything interesting/well-made about Jonestown, and this was excellent. Kept me hooked the entire time, and I learned many things I didn't know about the cult before.

let me try this review again. The series moved me in way I did not expect. This brought the human face to the stories we hear when anyone talks of the number of people who lost their lives. Very well made. In 2019, we r facing a crisis in our country and I pray we can avoid another Jonestown. I want to thank each and every survivor for sharing their story in hopes we can avoid this ever happening again.
