Prepare for some real-life horrors.
What many of you may not know is that the movie – starring Joe Swanberg (V/H/S, You’re Next, A Horrible Way To Die), AJ Bowen (You’re Next, A Horrible Way To Die, The House of the Devil, The Signal), Kentucker Audley (V/H/S), Amy Seimetz (You’re Next, A Horrible Way to Die, Tiny Furniture) and Gene Jones (No Country for Old Men) – is inspired by the real-life horror story of Jonestown.
After you’ve had the chance to see The Sacrament, come right back here to Bloody Disgusting and check out Stanley Nelson’s 2006 PBS documentary “Jonestown: The Life and Death of People’s Temple”.
Featuring never-before-seen footage, this documentary delivers a startling new look at the Peoples Temple, headed by preacher Jim Jones who, in 1978, led more than 900 members to Guyana, where he orchestrated a mass suicide via tainted punch. It is said to be the most thorough, comprehensive, complete story of Jonestown.
For those of you who aren’t aware of the history, prepare for a serious gut punch.
