Just when you were getting excited about Bret Easton Ellis' upcoming series The Deleted, Jared Leto went and produced a documentary about real-life cults. Directed by Will Allen -- a member of spiritual movement The Buddhafield -- Holy Hell is an unfiltered glimpse into the strange world of cult life.

Spanning over 20 years, Will documents the LA cult's decent from harmless yoga, meditation, and swimming in a river to manipulation and brainwashing under the leadership of Michel, AKA 'The Teacher.' While the film doesn't hit cinemas until next month, you can take a peak at the trailer below.
