The Church of Scientology really, really does not want HBO's documentary "Going Clear: Scientology and the Prison of Belief" to be seen by mass audiences.
The documentary, which originally premiered on HBO in March, opened to 1.7 million viewers, making it the highest-rated documentary for the network since 2006.
But now, the film is allegedly facing threats from church members as it attempts to reach an international market.
