On Sept. 11, 1857, 120 travelers en route to California were slain by Utah Mormon settlers and neighboring Paiute Indians in what has been named the Mountain Meadows Massacre. John D. Lee was the only person convicted after this religious carnage, and it’s his confession that creates the basis of events for director/co-writer Christopher Cain’s film. Unfortunately, this significant and controversial event is given a made-for-TV throwaway treatment with needlessly chaotic storytelling techniques, trite camera work and sleepwalking performances by Jon Voight and Terence Stamp.
