In the 2012 horror film, Children of Sorrow, a young documentary filmmaker named Ellis takes her crew to investigate a cult known as the Children of Sorrow, a group known for their dark beliefs and bizarre rituals. The founder of the cult, Simon Leach, has promised his followers salvation and peace in exchange for complete devotion to his cause.

As Ellis and her crew begin to infiltrate the cult, they discover that the Children of Sorrow are not what they seem. The group is led by a charismatic yet twisted leader, Simon Leach, who uses his followers for his own benefit. The cult practices extreme forms of discipline and punishment on anyone who goes against their beliefs. This includes physical violence, brainwashing, and even murder.

Ellis begins to unravel the dark secrets of the cult as she interviews survivors who have escaped Simon’s clutches. She discovers that many of the members were brought into the cult as children and brainwashed into believing in Simon’s twisted ideology. Simon preyed on their vulnerabilities and need for a sense of belonging, turning them into completely obedient followers.

As Ellis and her crew delve deeper into the cult, they become more entrenched in the madness that surrounds them. Simon begins to see them as a threat and decides to take desperate measures to keep his followers under his control.

The group becomes trapped in the cult’s compound, constantly under the watchful eye of Simon and his most loyal followers. The cult members are slowly losing their grip on reality as they commit more and more atrocities in the name of their beliefs. The documentary crew has no choice but to try and escape before they become the next victims of Simon’s cult.

Children of Sorrow features standout performances from the cast, particularly from Bill Oberst Jr. as Simon Leach. Oberst Jr. gives a chilling portrayal of the manipulative and sadistic cult leader, making him one of the most memorable villains in recent horror films. The rest of the cast, including Hannah Levien and Whitney Nielsen, deliver strong performances that add depth to the story.
