Synopsis

Documentary focuses on the study of exorcism and highlights the true story behind the 1973 feature film "The Exorcist" and the book on which it is based. The program draws on actual eyewitnesses, church documentation and the insight of priests, psychiatrists and para-psychologists. The story of a 13-year-old Maryland boy, who was said to be possessed by the devil in the winter of 1949 and which inspired "The Exorcist" and a non-fiction account entitled "The Possessed," is told using dramatic reenactments shot on location and the detailed records of the doctors and priests consulted by the boy's parents.
