Series Summary
While investigating his brother's disappearance, journalist Jeff Sefton discovers the dark underworld of the popular television show "Cult" and its obsessive fan base.

As the two dig deeper into the fan world, they find that it is more than just entertainment for some devotees, and as the gruesome plot twists unravel, some viewers are willing to kill to see what happens next.

  • It takes awhile to get into the investigation launched by Jeff and Skye. At the same time, the fictional "Cult" TV show seems more compelling than the real Cult TV show we're watching. Show More

  • This series-in-a-series is an innovative and creative way to make TV, which I love. What would I have loved even more? A scripted series about a scary, charismatic cult leader. Show More

  • Some scenes play like those stiff “re-creations” in crime reality shows and the camera’s constant quick-cuts promote headaches, not intrigue. Show More
