The True Story of the Exorcist

This documentary from the Discovery Channel series called Exorcists tells the true story of the infamous film and book called The Exorcist from W. Blatty.

Ronald E. Hunkeler, (in this documentary, referred to as Richard) a young boy from Cottage City, suffered delusions and severe episodes of psychosis with unexplained feats of unusual strength.

Hunkeler's Catholic family was convinced the child's aggressive behavior and outbursts was attributable to demonic possession when all medical avenues have been exhausted and called upon the services of Father William Bowdern with Father Walter Halloran to perform the rite of exorcism on a referral from Father Raymond Bishop.

This is the story of what truly happened.
