In this special bonus episode, we watch and analyze two films with themes of demonic possession. The first film is The Devil & Father Amorth, a documentary from the director of the original The Exorcist movie, William Friedkin. The second is 2014 film Deliver Us from Evil, directed by Scott Derrickson and based off of the real life events of NYPD cop Ralph Sarchie.

We chose these pieces for a few reasons. Since we started doing this podcast last February, we have grown fascinated not only with the cinematic portrayals of demonic possession in Hollywood, but also with the religious and scientific perspectives surrounding exorcisms in the real world. Are these exorcisms of actual demons? Are these manifestations merely symptoms of mental illnesses? What is the answer?

Music is "Ludovican" by notforme!, from album Ludovican.
