Exorcism: Live! Two Hour Event
Airs Friday, October 30, 9/8c
EXORCISM: LIVE! features the Tennessee Wraith Chasers from the hit series GHOST ASYLUM, as well as Psychic Medium Chip Coffey.
Follow along as a team of seasoned paranormal professionals embarks on what is considered by many a dangerous mission to investigate the original Exorcist house for paranormal activity, contact its demons and to perform an exorcism on the house to once and for all, bring peace to the most haunted home in America.
The two-hour live special will revisit the story and the frightening house that inspired the iconic movie The Exorcist on its 66th anniversary.
In 1949 at a house in St. Louis, an exorcism was performed on 14-year-old Roland Doe to rid him of demonic possession. No one has ever attempted to cleanse the house of the spirits and demons that remain there, until now.
Viewers will have the opportunity to take an active part in EXORCISM: LIVE! by following multiple live camera feeds set up around the house online at:
