All-New Series Premieres Wednesday, January 16 at 10 PM E/P -
(Silver Spring) - People are often scared of what goes bump in the night. But what if the most dangerous monsters were the very same people your life depended on? Following extraordinary and terrifyingly true tales of psychological manipulation, Investigation Discovery's latest series DANGEROUS PERSUASIONS explores everyday people who were brainwashed into making remarkable sacrifices and committing unthinkable acts in the process. Told through intimate, first-person accounts, each hour-long episode details the captivating stories of people who were lured into a web of deceit and lost themselves along the way. False prophets, criminal masterminds, and sociopathic con-artists who prey on the innocent are just some of the Machiavellian architects at the center of these unbelievable and shocking true stories. DANGEROUS PERSUASIONS premieres Wednesday, January 16 at 10 PM E/P on Investigation Discovery.
I really enjoyed the premiere episode, perhaps because during the same period of time she was in Scientology I was deep inside a completely different cult and I totally get where she was coming from. I think unless you’ve been there it’s really hard to imagine how insidious it can be, how innocent it all sounds one step at a time…and then there you are. She’s fortunate she got out with an intact marriage and her son, some people wind up leaving everyone behind them and suffer a permanent break from family, spouses, and children.
I am looking forward to this series and what other tales they have to tell.
