This is a documentary that dives right into the most infamous demonic case of our generation .... the 1949 St. Louis Exorcism which was partially the basis (along with the 1928 Iowa Exorcism) for the movie "The Exorcist".

However, in this movie you learn more about the "truths" of the 1949 St. Louis case and of the real hero Father Bowdern (the assigned exorcist) in the epic battle of good vs. evil. This was a real case documented by the Catholic Church itself.

This documentary brilliantly and artistically brings many hidden truths concerning this case to life and it is done superbly in a way that the new generation can understand and relate to.

In this documentary you get to learn about the real character of the assigned exorcist, Father William Bowdern, from his niece. You also learn of never before locations involved in this infamous case and get to witness firsthand the paranormal exploration of such. You actually get to go inside the bedroom of the actual house where it all started and where the Devil slept in 1949. You even get to hear accounts from actual close family and friends of the boy who was possessed in 1949 and even get facts about the furniture from the hospital room where the demons were cast out, why is it still in cold storage today? This is a must see film for any fan of The Exorcist, paranormal enthusiast, horror buff, those local to the St. Louis area and everyone who wishes the historical aspects of not just this specific case, but possessions and exorcisms in general. The demonologist interviewed in this movie was Dr. William Bradshaw one of the last true degreed demonologist left in the world who received his Masters from Yale and Doctorate from St. Andrews University in Scotland. When you are done watching this movie you feel like you have gained a wealth of knowledge within several areas. It will leave you wanting to watch it again!
