Advertisement

After forming a small group in Oregon in the 1970s, Heaven’s Gate co-founders Bonnie Nettles and Marshall Applewhite hit the road for recruitment meetings, asking members to leave their family and lives behind.

Heaven’s Gate is a four-part series, from CNN Original Series, that explores the infamous religious movement and the stranger-than fiction circumstances that culminated in the biggest mass suicide to ever take place on U.S. soil.

It follows the death of 39 members of the cult in San Diego in 1997, who believed that they would reach an extraterrestrial spacecraft.

HEAVEN’S GATE: CULT OR CULTS – 4 Part Special premieres Sunday January 24 on FOX SHOWCASE at 8.30pm or watch On Demand
