NBCUniversal’s female-focused true crime network Oxygen Media is delving into the dark world of cults that kill in an upcoming limited series.

Deadly Cults (4 x 60 minutes) will explore the stories of cult leaders, the psychology behind them and how they instill fear and hatred into the hearts and minds of their followers, which often leads them to murder. The series recounts each case through interviews with the investigators, former cult members, and family and friends closest to the victims.

Produced by Industrial Media’s Intellectual Property Corporation and Eureka Productions, Deadly Cults spotlights the chilling tales of a self-proclaimed prophet who convinced his followers to murder an innocent family, and a vampire coven on the hunt for its next victim.

The premiere episode looks at a double homicide involving two parents and a missing girl that triggered a multi-state chase with one of the suspects claiming to be a 500-year-old vampire.

Deadly Cults is produced by Industrial Media’s Eli Holzman, Aaron Saidman and Bill Pruitt. Paul Franklin and Chris Culvenor served as producers for Eureka Productions.

Deadly Cults premieres Feb. 10 at 8 p.m. ET/PT on Oxygen.
