G. Allen Johnson San Francisco Chronicle Mohamed uses the wealth of footage that was filmed days before, during and after the massacre in Jonestown, Guyana, that left more than 900 dead, to construct a ticking-clock, real-time thriller that brings the tragedy to a whole new modern audience. Rated: 3/4 Jun 18, 2024 Full Review Nick Schager The Daily Beast An up-close-and-personal portrait of Jonestown’s downfall. Jun 17, 2024 Full Review John Anderson Wall Street Journal The most compelling elements in “Cult Massacre,” which is a riveting experience overall, are the survivor interviews. Jun 14, 2024 Full Review Stephanie Morgan Common Sense Media This documentary offers profound and unsettling insight into the Jonestown tragedy, supported by poignant survivor interviews and chilling archival footage. Jul 10, 2024 Full Review Steve Murray ArtsATL Even in the wake of plentiful Jonestown docs and dramatizations, "Massacre" packs a punch. Jun 28, 2024 Full Review Christopher Campbell Nonfics For those unfamiliar with the story, Cult Massacre: One Day in Jonestown doesn’t paint a big enough picture to be an introduction. On its own, it’s still amazing how much footage was captured at the time. Jun 21, 2024 Full Review Read all reviews
