Critic Reviews for Jonestown: Terror in the Jungle Miniseries

All Critics (3) | Top Critics (2)

Nothing is sensationalised, but the details quietly and relentlessly build into an ever more dreadful threat.

Top Critic

Having watched more than a couple of previous investigations of Jonestown, Jim Jones and Peoples Temple over the years, I'm at least prepared to call Terror in the Jungle one of the best of the genre.

Nov 19, 2018 | Full Review…

The length paid off, allowing director Shan Nicholson to assemble a meticulously detailed portrait of the way Jones built up his "Temple".

Audience Reviews for Jonestown: Terror in the Jungle: Miniseries

  • Dec 30, 2018
    This documentary is unsettling. It’s jarring. It’s upsetting. At the end, It will rip your heart out and make you question where evil ends and lunacy begins. It will scar you - just a little bit. You’ll feel a little bit ill. 40 years won’t seem like that long ago. You will be angry and then wonder what there is to be angry at. Where was the crime? In the actions of a madman, in the incredibly blind loyalty of his “children”, or in the blindness of the US to what was happening? Was this a mass suicide, did parents kill their own kids, or was it mass genocidd by a lunatic genius who had over 900 hostages? And you’ll ask a lot more. You will wish you could forget it - and you’ll hope you never will. It’s, in short, fantastic.
