Maybe you've also heard of the Matamoros cult, which, under leader Adolfo Constanzo, believed human sacrifices would give them "success and protection."

Perhaps you know of Heaven’s Gate, the group that believed the entire Earth was going to be wiped out soon, so they participated in a mass suicide in 1997.

Or maybe you know of Aum Shinrikyo, the Japanese doomsday cult that caused the horrific Tokyo subway nerve gas attack of 1995.
