(NEWSER) – This should get you in the Halloween mood: The cable channel Destination America says it will broadcast a live exorcism on the St. Louis residence that once housed the inspiration for the film The Exorcist at 9pm Eastern on Friday.
Catholic priests performed a series of exorcisms on a Maryland teenager known only as "Roland Doe," who was purported to be possessed by the devil, on the spot in 1949. But "no one has ever attempted to rid the lurking spirits and demons that inhabit this home—until now," the Discovery Communications-owned network says in a statement, per UPI. Not enough for you on the campiness level? "The worst-case scenario is that one of these entities will attach to someone," a TV producer tells the Chicago Tribune.
