A live event is set for this Halloween that will be a TV first: the first live televised exorcism in U.S. history. Discovery Communications announced plans today for the event, “Exorcism: Live!,” set to air on Destination America.
The program is slotted for Oct. 30 at 9 p.m. The show “will revisit the story and the frightening house that inspired the iconic movie ‘The Exorcist’ on its 66th anniversary this October,” the network said. “The live event will take place at the original Exorcist House in the suburbs of St. Louis where the infamous ritual was performed on Roland Doe in 1949. No one has ever attempted to rid the lurking spirits and demons that inhabit this home, until now.”
