Critic Reviews for Jesus Camp
Jesus Camp doesn't just preach to the converted, it bores and frightens them.
A disturbing, unflinching portrait of religion and its effects on children when in the hands of psychotic strangers and bad parents.
Audience Reviews for Jesus Camp
It is appalling to see the nefarious effects of religion and the fundamentalist indoctrination of children carried out by those ignorant, delusional ministers who are so strongly committed to brainwashing them into becoming a bunch of fanatics and turning the USA into a theocracy.
Having gone through 20+ years of Evangelical indoctrination, I found this film scarily accurate and disturbing. Much of that disturbing aura derived from the film's presentation, in how its subject matter is presented nearly commentary-free and how what commentary it presents is mostly rather subtle. That said, it's not an easy watch.
I knew this movie was going to make me angry before I even watched it.
