Guyana: Cult of the Damned (DVD)
Directed by René Cardona Jr.
Yvonne De Carlo
Guyana: Cult of the Damned (aka Guyana: Crime of the Century) is a 1970 Mexican-American exploitation drama written and directed by René Cardona Jr. (Tintorera, The Bermuda Triangle). The film was shot in Mexico, was based on the Jonestown Massacre. The names of the central characters are slightly tweaked from the historical ones, the film is set in “Johnsontown” rather than Jonestown, the cult is led by “Reverend James Johnson” (Stuart Whitman, Shadows in an Empty Room, Rio Conchos, Maniac!) rather than Rev. Jim Warren Jones, and the murdered Congressman is “Lee O’Brien” (Gene Barry, The War of the Worlds and TV’s Burke’s Law) instead of Leo Ryan. Guyana: Cult of the Damned features a stellar cast that includes John Ireland (Red River), Joseph Cotten (The Third Man), Yvonne De Carlo (TV’s The Munsters), Bradford Dillman (Chosen Survivors), Nadiuska (Conan the Barbarian), Hugo Stiglitz (Tintorera) and Robert DoQui (The Devil’s 8).
