I've seen a handful, and most are very good. I just woke up from a nap, but once I get some caffeine, I'll look some of them up.

"Holy Hell" is the only one I can remember at the moment after a quick search.



Wild Wild Country on Netflix is worth checking out. There's also Going Clear if you believe Scientology to be a cult.

"Wild Wild Country" is one I saw that was interesting. I saw "Going Clear" but I guess it didn't leave much of an imprint.


It also seems that the only difference between a religion and a cult is the numbers. It's also funny when someone will critique a religion for being barbaric while the religion they advertise is also barbaric, if not worse.



But they make good documentaries!

The one on Jonestown obviously. I expect you've seen that.

One of Us is about Hasidic communities and is I think on Netflix.

Jesus Camp.

The Devil's Playground (Amish)

I remember reading about the middle two, but the last one about the Amish sounds interesting... I've seen a few on Jonestown, but they've all been pretty interesting. Thanks!



I remember seeing one from Jonestown when I was waaaay too young. That thing terrified me.

Is there some other perspective on it?

The internet is very useful. I found this in a few seconds.

You'd think the religiosos would find something better to do than go march at funerals. No humanity. And I'm no fan of soldiers, either.

Don't know if there's any out there I haven't seen, especially since many sound the same, as well as multiple documentaries on .... Jim Jones (there could be dozens for all I know).



Just found one... I have only seen the first one, but it's pretty good
Seduced: Inside the NXIVM Cult

https://www.imdb.com/title/tt13269706/

There's 4 parts.

There's The Vow and The Vow II also about NXIVM and the subsequent trial of Keith Raniere.


Orgasm Inc on Netflix Started as a sex cult teaching women how to orgasm then got even weirder and abusive.

Found out about the Heaven's Gate cult today, by accident, when I was researching the Michael Cimino film 'Heavens Gate'. Similar to Jonestown in what it achieved. There are two documentaries I can find.

-One is an HBO Miniseries called 'Heaven's Gate: The Cult of Cults'

https://www.imdb.com/title/tt11210146/

-The other is a 45 min documentary called 'People magazine investigates cults - season 2 episode 3, heaven's gate'. So I guess there'sa bunch more on cults in that series.:

I want to see the Church of Scientology do a general documentary about cults. That would be interesting. What would they say a cult is, how to know you're in one, and how to get out?



This one is terrific. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Waco_(...s)?wprov=sfti1
