Movie Info

This documentary offers a never-before-seen look at the "incel" community, an online subculture, linked to multiple mass murders and hate crimes against women. In 2014, 22-year-old Elliot Rodger shot and stabbed six of his fellow students to death in a pre-meditated attack at the University of California, Santa Barbara. His motive? In a chilling video Rodger said he was angry that he was still a virgin and in his words wanted to show himself as "the true alpha male" by punishing women for not being attracted to him. The legacy of Rodger's assault was catapulting online "incels" into wider consciousness. "Incels" - short for "involuntary celibates" - are a global community of sexually frustrated young men, who have found support amongst one another on the net. Some idolise Rodger, and chillingly, his murder spree seems to have helped inspire at least three further mass killings in North America, that have mainly targeted women.

  • The documentary carried in-depth interviews with a series of, well, I suppose the word is crustaceans, who took the business of being etiolated and unattractive to baroque new depths.

  • Somehow, the team behind a new BBC Three documentary, Inside The Secret World Of Incels, managed to convince three self-described incels to share their stories on camera - and the results are disturbing.
