Destination America to Air Live Exorcism This October

The Destination America channel will televise a live exorcism from the real Exorcist house with psychic medium Chip Coffey and the cast of Ghost Asylum.

The Exorcist is widely considered one of the scariest films of all time. Not only did it manage to cause a fear of Ouija boards, it also put the fear of God into American movie-goers in the midst of America’s 1970s Satanic Panic. What many don’t realize is that the story of a child in the grips of a demonic possession is based a true story.

In 1949 a boy named Roland Doe underwent a series of exorcisms in his St. Louis home, supposedly possessed by an evil entity he contacted after his spiritualist aunt gave him a talking board to play with.

The house is still considered by some to be haunted, having been featured on paranormal investigation shows like Travel Channel’s Ghost Adventures. Now the Destination America channel plans to broadcast a live exorcism of the infamous house that inspired The Exorcist novel by William Peter Blatty.

Exorcism: Live! will feature psychic medium Chip Coffey as well as the cast of Ghost Asylum, a group known as the Tennessee Wraith Chasers, as they attempt to remove whatever evil has inhabited the house for the last 66 years.

The exorcism will air live this October.

Fun Fact: The first-ever televised exorcism was aired by NBC in 1971.

The recording featured reporter Carole Simpson interviewing Ed and Marsha Becker, who believed their Chicago home was haunted. Medium Joseph DeLouise channels the spirit, and then a minister communicates with it and ultimately claims to have exorcised it. Ed later wrote about the frightening experiences he and later tenants experienced in his book True Haunting.
