This from a recent article listing various celebrities currently or formerly connected with controversial/cultic groups.
long with their other siblings, David and Patricia Arquette were born into the Skymont Subud commune in Virginia.
Started in the 1920s in India*, the cult doesn’t define itself as a religion, but rather a way to communicate with God “in a different way.” The commune the Arquettes were brought up in was meant to be a social experiment and a utopia, but it lacked running water, and their parents were terribly abusive.
(Not strictly accurate: the propagator of Subud was Indonesian.
About the Cult: David Arquette was born into the Skymont Subud commune in Virginia. The Subud movement was started in Indonesia in the 1920s by Muhammad Subuh Sumohadiwidjojo and it revolves around spiritual directions from "the Great Life Force."
Subud does not define itself as a teaching or a religion in itself, instead practitioners are encouraged to affiliate themselves with an existing religion such as Christianity and learn to communicate with God in a different way.
David's Experiences: The commune that David Arquette was brought up in was meant to be a social experiment and a utopia of sorts. Its isolated position meant there was no electricity, bathrooms or running water, but these problems were the least of Arquette's worries.
David and his sisters, Patricia and Rosanna really suffered at the hands of their own parents, not the Sudbud cult, but their isolated lifestyle meant they did not realize how bad their upbringing was.
All of the siblings suffered violent physical abuse at the hands of their parents and David was self-medicating with stolen alcohol and drugs from the age of four.
