A Sinister Sect: Colonia Dignidad

Well if you, like us, binge-watched last week’s Midnight Mass and you’ve not quite had enough of religious cult-like shows then this documentary is the one for you. This is the disturbing story of a real-life Latin American cult run by a German preacher. The cult came to an end when a group of Chilean boys brought about its demise. The documentary includes never before seen footage and interviews with those who were members and or affected by the operation of the religious sect.
