Zak Bagans’ Documentary The Demon House (02:26)
The trailer to Demon House dropped on YouTube on February 26, 2018, via the
Freestyle Digital Media and Ghost Adventures channel.
This film is the next documentary featuring and The Ghost Adventures crew. Many aficionados of the Travel Channel’s Ghost Adventures series have waited both patiently and anxiously for word on the release of Demon House.
For those unfamiliar with the story behind the Demon House documentary, I’m going to provide an excerpt from an article I penned and published on DecayMag back in April 2016.
On or around January 2014, Bagans’ personal research/crusade on the paranormal led him to Gary, Indiana. Bagans purchased a nondescript home located at 3860 Carolina Street for thirty-five thousand dollars. The investment was the initial step towards a new paranormal-themed documentary. At the time Bagans’ pre-production investigation centered on the home and its previous tenants, a family of five.
Latoya Ammons’ her mother and Ammon’s three children were afflicted with paranormal activity. Their story reverberating across numerous articles, news segments, and interviews.
The abode although ordinary had a plethora of strange anomalies. Demonic possession and other examples of the paranormal took place, this according to the official narrative. News on this event captured global headlines. Carolina Street, the once unpretentious district in Gary, Indianapolis turned into a media spotlight.
Here are some of the incidents reported at the Demon House
• Latoya Ammons and her mother Rosa Campbell witnessed a 12-year-old levitate above the bed
• Footsteps were heard on the basement stairs and doors opened between the basement and kitchen.
• Shadow figure of a man walking across the living room
• Wet footprints were reported to be found on the floor
• Local churches refused to assist. One church confirmed the Carolina Street house was indeed haunted. Two clairvoyants claimed 200 demons resided within the home
• Check out the trailer, I’ll provide the link to it in the description below and please share your thoughts on this weird modern-day case of demonic possession, fact or fiction?
The Devil and Father Amorth Documentary (8:46)
Exorcisms are tales of fiction or are they? Since 1973 the mystique of demonic possession captured the imagination of popular culture.. This was the year The Exorcist was released and since then filmmakers have worked hard to create a production that parallels the visual merits of Director William Friedkin.
It is said that The Exorcist is based on true events, a demonic possession involving a fourteen-year-old boy. The reported incident occurred over a two month period in March and April of 1949.
This spawned the 1971 novel called The Exorcist written by William Peter Blatty and later the 1973 film.
Its 2018 and Director William Friedkin is bringing another spotlight on the topic of demonic exorcism with The Devil and Father Amorth. This film is not a work of fiction but instead unfolds as a documentary.
In his latest, William Friedkin returns not only to his documentary roots but to the subject of one of his most towering works, 1973’s The Exorcist. Friedkin, a legendary raconteur, leads a tour that moves from the infamous Exorcist steps in Georgetown to Italy, where he meets with the 91-year-old Father Gabriele Amorth, official exorcist of the Diocese of Rome, and accompanies Amorth on one of his harrowing house calls. A sprightly, at times gonzo-style investigation into the long history of demonic lore, and a one-of-a-kind insight into the persistence of medieval belief in the supposedly modern world.
