Plot Synopsis

Using interviews with the investigators, former cult members, and family and friends closest to the victims, DEADLY CUTS is a one-hour docuseries that chronicles unhinged murder cases where investigators uncover and expose the dark world of cults that kill. From a self-proclaimed prophet convincing his followers to murder an innocent family to a vampire coven searching for their next sacrifice, the series shows how power and manipulation can lead to murder. Plus, the series explores the chilling tales of cult leaders and the psychology behind them exploiting fear and hatred in the hearts and minds of their followers, which often leads them to kill. In the series opener, "Vampire Clan," 17-year-old Jennifer Wendorf comes home to find her parents brutally murdered and sister missing. Searching for answers, investigators discover a complicated web tracing back to a cult of self-proclaimed vampires, with one of the suspects claiming to be a 500-year-old vampire. Other stories include:

"Kirtland Murders": Police in Kirtland, Ohio receive a tip about a family of five killed and buried in a barn belonging to a local cult. As they question the cult, investigators learn even more sinister details of power and manipulation leading up to the murders.

"Killers of Rulo": After hearing about a religious cult stockpiling weapons on an isolated farm outside Rulo, Nebraska, FBI agents cultivate an informant from inside the group who details the torture and murder being ordered by the group's diabolical leader.
On Sunday, March 3, 2019 at 8pm ET/PT, Oxygen premiered "Palo Mayombe," the season finale of DEADLY CULTS. After crossing the Mexican Border from Brownsville, Texas, a student out on spring break goes missing. The investigation leads US officials to a cult known for practicing witchcraft led by a former male model and a high school cheerleader.
