How to watch
The true crime genre tends to sensationalize cult leaders like these, but Daughters of the Cult takes a more journalistic approach towards Ervil LeBaron, the leader of a splinter Mormon cult group. Primarily showing interviews, archived media, and blurry, out of angle re-enactments, the docuseries doesn’t exaggerate, knowing how horrifying the story already was, but it’s no less emotional as it comes from the perspective of the family this cult leader has tormented. Daughters of the Cult isn’t easy to watch, but it’s definitely a sobering, grounded perspective in a sea of colored cult crime depictions.
