New Netflix documentary investigates highly controversial dating service
If you thought the dating world was already a nightmare...
A new three-part documentary titled Escaping Twin Flames is confirmed to be coming to Netflix soon, diving into the world of a very famous and reportedly highly controversial dating platform.
As per the announcement via Deadline, "The docu-series will feature exclusive access to former members and include horrifying stories of coercion and exploitation, from encouraging stalking behaviour to manipulating gender identities. It also will document the active efforts of family members to rescue their loved ones from Jeff and Shaleia’s web.
"The twin flame obsession has been growing on social media during the past few years, with one theory being that there are 144,000 humans capable of finding their true twin flame. It has been given credence by the likes of Megan Fox and Alicia Keys and has exploded across YouTube and TikTok."
The new documentary comes from director Cecilia Peck, who previously tackled a similar topic with doco-series Seduced: Inside the NXIVM Cult, which currently has a score of 100% on Rotten Tomatoes. On the Twin Flames documentary, Peck said:
"We were flooded with messages from people who left high-control groups after releasing our series about the NXIVM cult and the stories of the survivors and families impacted by Twin Flames Universe emerged as the most urgent to expose.
"Escaping Twin Flames is the result of a three-year investigation into the sophisticated recruitment and indoctrination techniques employed by the leaders of this online group. We are grateful to those who courageously entrusted us with their first-hand accounts and evidence. We made this series for them and for everyone who has been manipulated or coerced without knowing it."
Escaping Twin Flames is due to arrive on Netflix on Wednesday 8 November.
