The Real Story: The Exorcist – Premieres Sunday, April 25 at 8pm ET/PT [10 minutes of this is total disinfo, in which a professor says it’s all in the mind. And he gets the last say — the last 30 seconds of the show to give his utter nonsense. The rest is based on reality, though – editor]
The Exorcist is one of the most terrifying movies ever made. The film ignited anew the debate between science and faith. Yet The Exorcist is not a work of complete fiction. In fact, it is based on the written record of a 1949 exorcism in St. Louis in which a priest claimed to have cast out several demons from a 13 year-old boy. The exorcism rituals went on for almost four months and, according to witnesses, the boy spoke Latin and had messages appear as though branded on his skin, suggesting poltergeist activity. The episode digs deep into the true story behind The Exorcist, exploring exorcism diaries and securing a rare and candid interview with William Peter Blatty, author of the original novel and the film’s screenplay.
The Real Story: The Bourne Identity – Premieres Sunday, May 16 at 8pm ET/PT [This is EXCELLENT! Most of the show discloses what that many Jason Bournes are actually committing these CIA atrocities throughout the world, which include drug running; though this show only discusses CIA mind-control assassins! – editor]
Jason Bourne is the ultimate CIA operative caught up in high-octane action that although highly entertaining, seems far-fetched. Despite being a fictional creation based on the books of author Robert Ludlum, Bourne is more than just Hollywood fantasy. The real story behind the movie franchise is explored through interviews with terrorism experts and former CIA agents who confirm that many of Jason Bourne’s actions closely mirror the real-life training of Agency operatives. The political assassinations in the Bourne books and films were also inspired by real-life events.
