People Magazine Investigates: Cults

Available on iTunes, Investigation Discovery, Prime Video, discovery+
Investigation Discovery joins forces with reporters from People magazine to tell stories of the destructive effects cults have on members and their families. Lured by false promises, everyday people are caught up in terrifying webs of abuse, deception and manipulation, building to pivotal moments when blind worship leads to violence and even death. Each hourlong episode offers an in-depth exploration of a twisted American cult, from world-famous Jonestown to smaller but equally disturbing sects of depravity. People's journalists interview survivors who managed to escape a cult, exposing stories of power-crazed leaders who use mind control, sex, and daily rituals to dominate followers.
