Awake 1980 had a mission. Attack these two movies! Voted: "The scariest movie of all time," this is what was said about "The exorcist" and the sequel.
Awake 1980 12/8 p.11 "Since the release of "The Exorcist some years ago, MANY reports are on file of the adverse effects it had on many who saw it. Maureen was an Atheist. She had heard so much about the film, she decided to go see it with a friend. The results were dramatic. "It was the most terrifying thing I have ever seen. It was horrible. I could feel something was happening to me. I was shaking all over, and could just manage to pick myself up from the seat to walk out. But this was only the beginning of my troubles. Returning home, I was ready to burst into tears. My husband offered me little comfort as he had told me not to go see the film. How right he was! I could not sleep that night, dreaming about the film. During the coming weeks things went from bad to worse. I was frightened to go to bed. And when I did, I would wake up in a cold sweat. I knew THERE WAS SOMETHING IN MY HOUSE AS I COULD FEEL IT WITH ME WHERE EVER I WENT. I felt I was going out of my mind.....I knew a family of Jehovah's Witnesses living nearby and jump at the opportunity to study the bible with them..."
Luckly she became a Witness and was saved from the Demons! The editor of Awake had 5 months earlier printed this...
Awake 80 7/22 p.31 "TV TRIGGERS TERROR! - When the motion picture "The Exorcist 2" was shown recently on U.S television, a mother and her 4 year old daughter in Whichita falls, Texas, reportedly watched it together. One scene is said to show the cutting out of a girl's heart to get rid of a demon. The little Texas girl was found murdered in the same fashion. Her mother was charged with homicide.
Now notice how strange that this article shows no newspaper reference or qoutes. It is very hard to check the whole story...was the woman suffering from mental illness or drugs? Who said this happened for real? The only refernce is where it happened and I have been un-able to find the original article anywhere. So I guess you will have to take Awakes word for it.
Have you seen these movies and been possesed, or had the urge to kill your daughter...if so call "Jehovah's Witness Ghost Busters" now! Brother Bill Muarry will be with you soon. Telephone 666 666 666. H.E.L.P J.A.H.
