‘The Exorcist’ House to be ‘Exorcised’ on Live TV [WATCH]
The original house that the movie "The Exorcist" was based on will be "Exorcised" on live TV.
Cable network Destination America will be airing the event live from the scene of the original events that took place and inspired the film, according to an article on Deadline.
Many fans know that the movie "The Exorcist" was based off a book written by William Peter Blatty. But what some may not know is that Blatty's book was based on true events -- the real life exorcism of a young boy named Roland Doe in the suburbs of St. Louis.
Although many portions of the movie were fictionalized to protect the identities of the actual persons involved in the real-life events, many aspects of the film are what was said to have happened during the event.
"Exorcism: Live!" is a new series on Destination America that will premiere its first episode with the exorcism of this original house that the novel and film were based on. They said that they will be covering every aspect of the house from top to bottom and will also be doing daytime and nighttime investigations. The network did not comment as to how they will do the event "Live" if their investigations will occur during the daytime as well, considering the show will air at 9 p.m. ET.
They did, however, say that they would be hosting a live Twitter chat during the live event with select topics getting tweeted during the episode.
The show will feature the cast of the network's current series, "Ghost Asylum." They are billed as the Tennessee Wraith Chasers. They will also be joined on the show by self-proclaimed psychic medium Chip Coffey.
"The Exorcist" came out in 1973 and it scared people so bad that it caused some to faint and others to run out of theater. There were even rumors of pregnant women having miscarriages during the film.
