Live Exorcism to Take Place on TV

Live Exorcism to Take Place on TV

A team of paramedics and police are on standby in St. Louis, as TV producer Jodi Tovay sends paranormal investigators into a spooky suburban house they believe is infested with demonic spirits, The Washington Post reports.

"Exorcism: Live!" set to air Friday at 9 p.m. on Destination America, a cable channel owned by Discovery Communications, is the first live exorcism on television, and one that could potentially be dangerous, Tovay said.

"The worst-case scenario is that one of these entities will attach to someone," Tovay noted. She added that if a spirit attaches itself to a person, there are obvious physical symptoms including nausea, scratches, and superhuman strength.

In an attempt to cleanse the house, which producers incorrectly claim inspired "The Exorcist" book and movie, a clergyman, a psychic, and the team from the network's "Ghost Asylum" head into the house that is said to be filled with dark and sinister energy.

"People have called it the biggest supernatural mystery in American history — so many tales that have come out of that house and still exist around it," Tovay said. "So we almost had to do something."

The Washington Post reports that the live telecast is also incorporating social media as six cameras will be placed throughout the house to allow viewers to watch footage online and use Twitter to alert the crew if something happens in another room.

While there are many skeptics who don't believe in paranormal activity, Tovay says the best part of the two-hour show is that it's live and the footage cannot be manipulated.

"We can't fake it on live TV. We can't fake evidence or pump in sound effects. The drama is unfolding right in front of you," Tovay said.

Nick Groff, the former star of Travel Channel's "Ghost Adventures," added that the demonic spirits are "waiting there to attack somebody else who is going to come in and let themselves open themselves up so it can attach itself to that individual in our reality … That's what scares me more than anything."

Because Friday night's show is expected to be an intense ritual, Bishop James Long, the founder of the ­Kentucky-based Paranormal Clergy Institute, who will accompany the group, said that "everybody will be signing a waiver, and they know the activity could be very violent — there's no guarantee about safety.

"I can't guarantee anyone's safety when I walk into this place. [We're] going against a demonic entity."
