You may want to get an early start on watching Cult, the new and incredibly creepy series coming to The CW this winter. That's because -- in addition to being creepy -- Cult is also a bit of a head-trip and might confuse you.
That's why you should watch early and often. Thanks to The CW releasing the premiere, "You're Next," early, you can watch Cult right here on BuddyTV.
Unlike most series, Cult
defies easy explanation. But here is an attempt:
It centers on a fictional television show about a police detective (Alona Tal) who tries to bring down the cult of Billy Grimm (Robert Knepper) -- a cult she herself once belonged to. This fictional show, also called Cult
, has inspired a rabid fan-base. A really
rabid fan-base. The fans might even be deadly.
This is where Jeff (Matt Davis) comes in. A disgraced journalist, he's never even heard of Cult
until his brother goes missing. When the clues point to a plot entangled with the brother's favorite TV show (that would be Cult
), Jeff finds himself quickly enmeshed in murderous obsessions and twisted plots. His only ally is Skye (Jessica Lucas), a production assistant on the show whose father also went missing under mysterious circumstances.
Are the fans reenacting the crimes and creepiness of their favorite show? Is there something even more sinister at work?
Watch the premiere now and try to decide for yourself:
Those are the questions Cult
(the real CW show, not the fictional one) wants you to ask. And oh, will you be asking them! This is a show that definitely requires some effort on the part of its viewers, but the payoff is worth it.
You really are not going to find a creepier or more disturbing show on television. It's awesome.
premieres on Tuesday, February 19 at 9pm on The CW. You can, however, watch the show now, right here on BuddyTV! The premiere episode, "You're Next," is also available on The CW's official site
and on Hulu.
