Back in the 80s, the world was full of false prophets and crazy cults. That was especially true for the United States. This documentary story follows a notorious West Hollywood cult that was brought to life by an engaging and charismatic man. And while it didn't last for long for obvious reasons, the impact was quite big. Holy Hell tells the story of how the cult came to life and what kind of people it appealed to. In the eyes of the men and women that joined the cause, it was something like a family, a place where they could feel the power of love. It gave them a new purpose, a "roadmap" for life. Even though the very idea of a cult is wrong, some of the concepts the leader used were life-changing.
