A religious cult leader, who convinced his followers that the world was going to end at the end of the 1970s, subjected them to increasingly twisted tortures if they doubted his word, or tried to leave the group.

Roch Thériault was previously a member of the Seventh-day Adventist Church, but developed an even more extreme interpretation of its end-of-the-world philosophy. He formed his own breakaway group called The Ant Hill Kids, based on his dream of humanity working together “Like ants in an ant hill.”

But while Thériault preached equality, he ruled his cult with an iron fist. All female members of the group were obliged to have sex with him, and he fathered at least 26 children with his numerous “wives” and concubines.
