Exposes the predatory underbelly of religion and psychosis and how desperately the survivors and victims have to struggle to get any level of self respect back after leaving the cult. Very compelling to watch! Excellent!
I am so sickened by the fact that this had gone on for so long, so hard to grasp , so many lives and I will never be able to understand how any mother would let this happen to their babies...so heartbreaking they never had chance....i never followed, any kind of religion because of the horrible facts and acts of disgusting human beings that hide under the "religion" in my heart my only god is my father, my grandfathers and grandfathers before him....no one else should claim to be such.. my heart breaks for all the suffering the kids had to go through...and karma bit that evil woman right where she needed to be hit in my mind.
I enjoyed this documentary a lot and the definitely delivered on one thing they promised from the trailer—they gave us a story of a cult that hasn’t been played out countless times before. The fact that all of this happened so close to me—in the time period I grew up in and in a state I lived in—made everything even more surreal. And they got some important players to talk on camera.
An absolutely riveting true to life account of the twisted & sick fake God power they held over these unknowing people who were blinded by their trust in these evil liars is heartbreaking, they literally tore entire families apart, scared children into total blind submission to their sadistic whims, my heart breaks for those born innocent into the sect and the young children brought unknowingly into their lairs
Fantastic film, terribly tragic story, tears for the survivors & prayers for those who still suffer today.
