Storyline

"Warren Jeffs: Prophet of Evil" pulls back the curtain on the now imprisoned religious prophet to an estimated 15,000 followers of the FLDS Church who, before going to jail for two felony counts of child sexual assault in 2011, is said to have married at least 78 wives and have more than 50 children and controlled millions of dollars for the church.

Revealing dark secrets that include the damage Jeffs did to young children, including his own, the special features extensive interviews with Jeff's closest family, former church members and those who wrestled to bring him to justice. The special also highlights stories of those who fought back against Jeffs' power and escaped his control with the intent to bring him down.

Bizarre, Compelling, Shocking, Disgusting, Fascinating
22 February 2018 | by neener3707See all my reviews

Within the first 2 minutes this documentary presents you with one of the most disgusting and heinous things you will ever hear, it grabs you by the throat and never lets go, about an infamous sexual assault scandal regarding the leader and self-proclaimed prophet of a fundamentalist Mormon group. It delves deep into a bizarre, abhorrent, yet fascinating world of polygamy, religious extremism, underage marriage, and molestation on a factory level. This swirling tale of both religious devotion and the exploitation of the respect and obedience of religious figures, I never once lost interest, and was even trying to do some paperwork, but couldn't because it was so damn eye-catching, I found myself fascinated by what would cause a man to do such evil things on a community level.

The film doesn't just follow the trial of the convicted "prophet", it follows the community in which the fundamentalist group rules. A world full of strict rules, paranoia, police working under the eye of religious figure, and a world truly stuck in time. The film also follows the admittedly interesting history of the community and what lead the child molester in question to do what he did. The film is unflinching look at the most depraved of human behavior, child brides, child molestation, brain washing, and much more. This so called prophet created this world and the films sets out to expose him and the unjust behavior of certain individuals.

I highly recommend it, but beware, its a tough subject.
