Most of us are familiar with the film, “The Exorcist,” based on a book by the same name. But did you know the spine-chilling story … is true? This new SHOCK DOCS installment reveals surprising new details of the real exorcism case that inspired the iconic horror film. The victim of the real demonic possession was a 13-year-old boy, known as Roland Doe. More than 70 years ago, Doe became the unwilling participant in the most famous story of the devil inhabiting a person’s soul. Catholic priests who perform exorcisms say what happened to the young boy is consistent with demonic possessions and that details of the story are true. The priests who battled the demon lurking inside the possessed boy witnessed bizarre and violent manifestations including levitation, vomiting, unnatural human strength and bloody markings on his body. And now, a long-lost interview with a dying monk, who never spoke about his participation in the boy’s exorcisms, details his frightening experience of watching the boy levitate above his bed. Even more startling, another eyewitness exposes a possible cover-up in the case. This captivating documentary details how the devil himself brought forth hell upon an unsuspecting, innocent young boy.
