Show Notes


Theatrical vs “The Version You’ve Never Seen.”


Devils, demons, pazuzu, deception. How do people get possessed? Different theories.


Supernatural detective work. Priest losing his faith.

“Real” Exorcism

The Catholics. The Rite of Exorcism. Bureaucracy. Serious vs loosey-goosey exorcisms.

Simple vs Easy Explanations

Occam’s razor. Science.


Tradition. Latin as the language of ancient evil. Ecclesiastical latin.

Order of Operations

Medicine -> fringe medicine -> call a priest!


The ways this movie is timelessly excellent and scary. Parenting.

Demon Battle Plan

Demons might not be the best at planning, OR we might be inconsequential nothings to them, OR creating a rift between god and his people is their job.


I need re-assignment, Tom. I want out of this job. It’s wrong. It’s no good.
