Plot Synopsis

MINISTRY OF EVIL: THE TWISTED CULT OF TONY ALAMO is a one-hour docuseries that chronicles the life and crimes of Tony Alamo, who, with his wife, Susan Alamo, became a born-again, fire-and-brimstone televangelist. The two launched The Tony and Susan Alamo Christian Foundation in 1969, which soon evolved into a cult that is said to still operate today. Together, by skirting the law and enforcing a code of silence among their followers, the Alamos came to wield unimaginable power, becoming millionaires on the backs of their believers. When Susan Alamo died in 1982, Tony continued getting away with heinous cruelty that included child abuse, polygamy and pedophilia. The series, which is currently in production, will explore the cultural consequences of the Alamo empire and feature rarely-seen archival footage, including an exclusive videotaped deposition with Alamo himself. It will also weave together interviews with the FBI agent who took Alamo down as well as cult survivors who have never previously shared their stories.
On Wednesday, March 20, 2019 at 11pm ET/PT, SundanceTV premiered the finale of MINISTRY OF EVIL: THE TWISTED CULT OF TONY ALAMO. Now out of prison, Tony Alamo begins to make young girls his "wives." As the child abuse escalates, some ex-members urge the FBI to intervene.
