Madeleine Tobias personal account about the cults she was part of. She is also the Author of the highly recommended book Take Back Your Life: Recovering from Cults and Abusive Relationships
The End of the World Cult
This very well made Documentary shows the all aspect of mind control and a crazy cult leader.
How to become a Cult Leader
Is a funny made video how to become a cult leader. Even if the presentation is light-harted all the facts can be found with any cult.
Is a true story about a teacher who is using Mind control on his students to teach them the lesson that Nazi Germany can happen any time again to any of us. Very well made movie which demonstrates how the “unfreezing” “freezing” process in a cult works
God Next Army
This is probably one of the more frightening concepts we have ever seen, mind controlled children being groomed for surgical insertion into the political process.
Good resource for other good cult documentations:
Derren Brown ~ Fear And Faith – Pt-1 Full
Derren brilliantly uses emotional elicitation to provoke a religious experience in an atheist. In this episode he employs auditory, visual, emotional as well as spatial anchoring and explains to the audience what he is doing as he demonstrated his NLP mastery. If you’ve ever questioned the power of NLP (Neuro Linguistic Programming) or wondered where God really comes from simply watch and learn.
Derren Brown ~ Fear and Faith Pt-2 Full ~ God Illusion
Captive Minds : Hypnosis and Beyond
Groups which have all powerful leaders who control the environment, control all information and eventually control the way their followers think, have one basic thing in common : They have found people who are willing to take that essential first step of surrendering to an authority figure they hope has all the answers.
Throughout history, many people have taken that first step. Sometimes joining a small group, sometimes a large group. And sometimes, a group that engulfs an entire nation.
Releasing The Bonds: Empowering People to Think for Themselves
Steven Allan Hassan, cult expert and psychologist, discusses ways to empower people in cults to think for themselves, with a very personal point of view. As a college student he was a member of the Unification Church, the “Moonies.”
Documentary about Psychopaths/Psychopathy.
What is a Psychopathy/Sociopath (Cult leaders are mostly Psychopathy/Sociopath) Psychopathy is a popular term often used to refer to a person characterized by reduced fear, a lack of empathy, coldheartedness, egocentricity, superficial charm, manipulativeness, irresponsibility, impulsivity, criminality, antisocial behavior, a lack of remorse, and a parasitic lifestyle. As a diagnostic category it is outdated, having been replaced by Antisocial personality disorder in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual.
Dr. Robert Hare is the foremost scholar and practicioner in the field of psychopathy and sociopathy, in the world today. In this video, Dr. Hare goes through the clinical dimensions for the assessment of psychopathy in individuals (Psychopathy Checklist Revised), and uses these dimensions to assess the behavior patterns of post-modern multinational corporations. His assessment hardly flatters today’s corporate world. Yes, the average corporation is psychopathic; and does that really surprise you?
This kind of exercise applies to any kind of organization, be it public or private, or public/private. You can read more about Dr. Hare’s excellent work in his own webpage: http://www.hare.org/.
I Am Fishhead – Are Corporate Leaders Psychopaths?
Every meaningful change starts with awareness. In our culture, we not only praise psychopaths in the highest positions of power, but in many cases, they became our role models. Challenge your beliefs! We have delved into the world of psychopaths and heroes and revealed something crucial about us.

The character Martha (who had been renamed Marcy May by the cult leader Patrick) seeks out the refuge of her sister’s home in Connecticut. Unable to talk about her experiences in the group, her paranoia and disturbing memories begin to overwhelm her.
