Murder, mayhem, Christianity and cults collide Devilsdorp: a shocking local true-crime exposé.

The four-part series uncovers disturbing new facts about the brutal Krugersdorp killings that will leave you questioning what you thought you knew.

In 2016, a spate of brutal killings, nicknamed the Appointment Murders, gripped the town of Krugersdorp, leaving salespeople and consultants terrified to book meetings in case they were the serial killer's next victims.

The investigation led detectives to a series of unsolved cold cases, the so-called Satanic Murders, and to links between 11 Krugersdorp killings between 2012 and 2016.

They discovered these were the work of Electus per Deus (Chosen by God), a cult with more victims than members.

This four-part docuseries places these crimes under the microscope.
