Do you ever really know who your neighbors are? Holly Hell is a documentary about a cult. One of the Merriam-Webster's definition of cult is: a situation in which people admire and care about something or someone very much or too much. This was exactly the situation here.
I went to the premier in Austin because I know one of the actors, who was a member of this group, and I was intrigued. What I hadn't realized is that this had taken place in my city.
They called it the Buddhafield and it was based in West Hollywood and then moved to Austin, between 1985 and the mid 2000's. These types of organizations and setups are not unusual, they have existed for a long time and they are happening right now in your city, wherever you are.
These young adults get swept away by the promise of happiness while they are searching for....happiness?? And twenty years later they realize their leader is an oddity of society, a liar and manipulator, so they eventually move on. Although not all of them move on, and the cult continues to exist.
Holly Hell got a lot of bad reviews online and few good ones. I have mixed feelings, but I found it entertaining and enlightening and I would recommend it to anyone who has an open mind. It's not a fun story, it's a sad reality. Check out the trailer below and let me know what you think.

"NY Seller Clients - April 2016
I know Violet from her New York days, so when my wife and I wanted to sell our country home we called Violet for some advice, thinking she may give us some helpful hints- well she did that and more! She told us about her relocation referral department and offered to help us locate an agent; again she went above and beyond, she looked into the agents websites and profiles and made recommendations. We were so happy that she did research on our behalf. She assisted us every step of the way through our process even though we had a NY agent. She even gave us advice on how to stage our house for a quicker sale and it worked!! I wish Violet could be our agent on our new house search, we may have to move to Austin!
