Celebrities, sex slaves, billionaires, and even branding, the story of the NXIVM cult had all the components of one of the nation’s biggest scandals. HBO’s The Vow gave an in-depth look behind the curtain of deceit that was the NXIVM cult. It follows the storyline of several of its previous members, its leaders, and a multitude of its victims.

The NXIVM roster included several high-status celebrities such as Smallville’s Allison Mack, the Bronfman heiress sisters, Battlestar Galactica star Nicki Clyne and even India Oxenberg, daughter of Dynasty star Catherine Oxenberg. Part of The Vow storyline follows Catherine’s tireless search to get her daughter back from the cult and its manipulative leader Keith Raniere.

NXIVM began as a “corporate success” and “self development” program that somehow deteriorated into a sex slave cult that branded its members. The Vow pulls back the curtain on this bizarre group, showing how even the group’s co-founder Nancy Salzman was taken in by Keith Raniere’s charisma and chaos. It follows the groups founding all the way to its dark and very public demise through the eyes of its victims and the public media throughout the trial.

  1. Cult leader Keith Raniere and his willing accomplice Nancy Salzman knowingly hurt many people. NXIVM training at times resulted in mental breakdowns, hospitalizations and worse was linked to suicide.
