13: The horrific sex cult inside NXIVM Killers, Cults and Queens

    • True Crime

Cheryl Hole and Nikki Druce are heading down a road they’ve never been before to the heinous sex cult Dominus Obsequious Sororium of NXIVM. Promoted as a self improvement community, NXIVM was an MLM of gargantuan proportions, allegedly giving advice to The Bronfman Sisters and even Richard Branson… but no one could have guessed the cruel underside ruled by sick leader Keith ‘Vanguard’ Raniere and Smallville actress Alison Mack. Who was Keith Reniere, and how did a self improvement company lead to the mutilation of almost a dozen women? Cheryl and Nikki are going to find out. Expect modern day cult behaviour, a very confused Chez, and some SERIOUSLY messed up behaviour.This episode contains graphic details of violence, mental and physical abuse.
