The unnamed volcano cult is one of Hollywood's largest cults. It is dedicated to the worship of any and all active volcanoes, but specifically Mount Nowhere, where free admission and lax safety regulations have made it the best place to throw in sacrifices. The cult has very little in terms of written canon, specific rituals, or basic organization. The majority of its structure, what little there is, seems informal at best, which does nothing to dispel the various rumors that surround the cult.
The volcano cult existed before the presence of any active volcanoes in the Hollywood region, for at least thirty years based on news reports and court records from the era. In these times, members of the cult would throw prospective sacrifices into miscellaneous holes, many of which they had dug themselves, which prompted frequent threats of legal action. During this period, cult membership was relatively low, even with the cult promising free drinks and cool hats to all prospective recruits. After the Big One hit, bringing multiple active volcanoes along with it, the cult's popularity surged.
Numerous Hollywood residents have come forward to claim knowledge of, and sometimes even responsibility for, the founding of the cult. It has been cited as a college prank that got out of control, the result of a drunken bet made on the set of Bride of the Lava Beast (1952), and other conflicting stories. Every single resident who has spoken publicly about the cult's origins has consequently been thrown into a volcano by the cult.
