★★★★ “Unprecedented! We watch with bated breath as the mask is slowly pulled off.” – Owen Gleiberman, BBC

“Fascinating… chilling!” – The Telegraph

Don’t miss one of the most talked about films from Sundance Film Festival!After graduating from college, young idealist William Allen joined a spiritual community filled with like-minded people all looking for some answers to the basic questions of life and led by a charismatic but secretive guru. Camera in hand, Allen documented 20 years of living inside this community, showing how his idealism began to unravel as more is revealed about the true nature of this cult.

Speaking out publicly for the first time, and with unprecedented and unparalleled access, Holy Hell is a descent into a world no one, not even its participants, could have imagined.
