CULT STATUS! returns to The Siren Theater Oct. 7th!
CULT STATUS brings you the true stories of people who've survived cults, extreme religions, pyramid schemes, and other hyper-intense group-think situations.
It's a night that will split your ribs AND make you think. Come pour yourself a fresh cup of red Kool-Aid and JOIN US...
This month we bring you tales straight from the mouths of:
