This Disturbing Event In Missouri Is So Creepy It Inspired A Movie
People love a good horror movie. One of the highest grossing horror movies of all time was 1973’s The Exorcist. This grotesque film had viewers on the edge of their seat as they watched a teen girl become possessed by demons. She spit and cursed at priests, spewed green vomit, and did a back bend down a flight of stairs under her possession. This movie has caused nightmares for hundreds of people, but it seems much more frightening when you learn that it’s a true story (obviously enhanced a bit for the big screen) and occurred right here in Missouri.
