What an excellent day for an exorcism. There is a new documentary available exclusively on Discovery Plus called SHOCK DOCS - THE EXORCISM OF ROLAND DOE. It is the story of the real life exorcism case that inspired the William Peter Blatty novel and later the iconic William Friedkin film, “The Exorcist”! This time around you are hanging out with prolific author and paranormal historian Troy Taylor who is featured in the doc. He is an expert on the unparalleled and haunting events that originally took place in 1949. He wrote a book about it called “The Devil Came To St Louis” as well as close to 130 books on the supernatural and unexplained. Learn about the shocking things that happened to Roland and in other similar cases that are part of a rising need for the Vatican to recruit more exorcists, some of these cases making medical history. Hear about the haunted spot that might change your life forever should you dare take home a souvenir...a terrifying house in Pittsburgh that tormented a family for more than 2 years and much much more. Listener discretion is advised.
