About Cults Uncovered

True stories of control, crime, and terror

Discover the shocking truth about some of the most disturbing cults that have ever existed--cults led by psychopaths such as Charles Manson, David Koresh, and Jim Jones that have exploded into acts of appalling savagery and evil.

How did Manson inspire his "family" to launch a campaign of murder? What twisted ideology lay behind horrific events like the Waco Siege, the Aum Doomsday Cult's attack on the Tokyo metro, and the mass suicide/murders of Peoples Temple at Jonestown in Guyana? Why did the suicidal adherents of Heaven's Gate believe Doomsday was at hand? How was an entire Mexican village duped into making human sacrifices to an "Aztec goddess"?

Cults Uncovered explores these and many more bizarre and frightening cases to reveal terrifying stories of manipulation, coercion, abuse, and murder.
