Live televised exorcism to occur inside the infamous house that inspired 'The Exorcist'
FREE Catholic Classes
Destination America will show a live exorcism from inside the house that inspired both the novel and film "Exorcist," six decades later. For the upcoming special, "Exorcism: Live!," the team will exclusively film in the suburbs of St. Louis, Missouri. This will be the first time such activity will be performed and aired live on television from inside the house itself.
MUNTINLUPA, PHILIPPINES (Catholic Online) - The special will star psychic medium, Chip Coffey and the cast of Ghost Asylum, commonly known as the Tennessee Wraith Chasers, according to the Entertainment Weekly report.
However, this is not going to be the first ever live TV broadcast of an exorcism - NBC aired an exorcism back in 1971. What the special has to offer is the place they are going to hold the exorcism; the house where 66 years ago, several exorcisms were performed on Roland Doe, the inspiration for the Exorcist story.
Doe was believed to have been possessed by a lot of demonic creatures and Fr. Raymond Bishop, the attending priest, tried to ward them off him whilst documenting the activities. In 1971, his life and the exorcisms performed on him were put together in a novel entitled "The Exorcist," by William Peter Blatty and later adapted into a film of the same name, two years later.
While some fans are waiting for the cast during a live broadcast based on the attempted exorcisms at the "haunted" house of unexplained mysteries itself, they had a chance to meet the team from Destination America at Comic-Con in San Diego.
EW reported the cast gave away bags, inspired by Ghost Asylum, for the fans who are waiting for the special TV broadcast. However, there is a question if it is necessary, especially for entertainment's sake, the same questions were posed for the first live television broadcast.
