A ton of my favorite horror movies are about cults. The Wicker Man and Kill List were particularly horrifying, but movies have nothing on what a real life cult just did.
Chinese cult The Church of Almighty God - sometimes known as Eastern Lightning - just murdered a woman in a McDonald's in Shangdong, China.
Five members of the cult - including a 12-year-old child - attacked Wu Shuoyan, 37, beating her to death with chairs and a metal mop.
The chilling footage was captured on CCTV.
Wu was simply waiting in McDonald's with her 7 year old son, when she refused to give her phone number to cult recruiters. It gets sicker.
When questioned by police about why they killed an innocent woman, cult member Zhang Lidong said,
'because she is a monster. She is an evil spirit. We are not afraid of the law. We have faith in God.'
Well, you can't expect anything reasonable from a guy who's spent seven years in a brainwashing cult. A brainwashing cult that also believes:
'Jesus has returned to earth as a Chinese woman named Lightning Deng, and...belonging to the group will save them from an impending apocalypse.'
Terrible. Hopefully justice will be served and this incident will put people off getting involved with cult activity.
