    The NXIVM curriculum gradually transforms India into a true believer. When actress Allison Mack approaches her about an elite, secret society of women, India hands over damaging personal “collateral” to join, not grasping that she is signing over her freedom and falling deeper into the clutches of the cult leader, manipulative sexual predator Keith Raniere.

yeah, pretty good.
I just finished watching HBO's The Vow, which I liked. This is a little more sophisticated and includes interviews with India Oxenberg.

Slightly disturbed that when I signed up for a trial of Starzplay, the web page address changed to include the word 'HOOKED'. Have I joined a cult?

great documentary
very well presented stages of brainwashing and legal battle what victims of that crimes need go through in order to have some kind of closure.

this sects targeting more and more people and what is ABSOLUTLY disgusting …this maniacs and sadist reaching for younger woman's each year, having more and more rich sponsor so they can reach even more and deprive them from what was well said here......"developing them brains"...organ what remember , give sadness, pleasure but also make as to be connected on all levels as human beings.
and all coded under sex as this is most privet and individual for each person ,feel and experience so differently it make also more difficult to decode and disarm all this madness what this crazy people implemented in them victim's .
strongly recommend to watch it.
surprising for me is that only one person comment on that .

Interesting to see it from India's viewpoint
I very much enjoyed HBO's The Vow but found myself wondering, at the end, what India's experience was. This is an excellent documentary showing what it is like to be drawn in by a pernicious, controlling, coercive creep like Raniere. There will still be some (like his defence counsel) that say, "Oh well, they were adults, it was their choice" which just goes to show the lack of understanding around coercive control and the dark intentions of the cult leader. How apt that he was found cowering in a closet like the coward he was. When you look at the films showing the NXIVM meetings you can see massive red flags throughout the whole thing, kissing on the lips, talking about rape, and you think, "These were intelligent people, how did they not see this?" but I suppose it's easy to see these things when you're not invested in his narcissistic nonsense. Am I the only one wanting to slap that permanent grin off Allison Mack's face? I wish India and her family all the best for the future

EXCELLENT DOCUMENTARY
I would urge everybody to watch this fascinating documentary..
Really informative and well produced .
I had preconceived idea`s about the members of this Sex cult (mainly from the media) ..I was wrong about a lot of the female members who did n`t know the full story and were coerced/blackmailed into some pretty bad situations..
This film really helped me to understand what the power of coercive control can do to any of us..We are all susceptible to many forms of brain washing techniques..
Also how these narcissistic /psychopath cult leaders need for power and control destroys lives !
Highly recommended!

Better than expected.
I am not a documentary watcher, and I just put this on in the background because I couldn't be bothered to look for anything else. Next thing I know I am hunkered down, fully invested in this story. Very well done, the use of animation for potentially harmful scenes was perfect. Would highly recommend.

Fascinating and engrossing exposition of a cult leader and his victims
I didn't really know what to expect from this but, it turned out to be very interesting and engaging. India Oxenberg comes across as authentic, but seriously damaged. Her Mother, the actress Cathrine Oxenberg is initially a bit distant and annoying, but is magnificent in the final stages. As an exposition of the ways in which a cult ensnares its followers, it's fascinating to watch and shows the deep damage one man can wreak on a large number of women's lives. A bit like Epstein's influence ..

The main character is a bad actress.
If she wasn't so bad at acting and showed her true form then it would be good.
