    I also should have added that Ronald Hunkeler is missing out on a small fortune by not coming forward. Perhaps NASA insisted that he remain silent after all – or – he was lying to get attention and did so very well to fool the priests.

    Why are you promoting this crap?

  • As painful as it might be, Exorcist fans can’t get enough and this extension of the story is too intriguing to ignore.

    People tend to forget that “The Exorcist” was not based upon the case of supposed possession that is exploited in “The Haunted Boy”. That was an incident which my father had read about while a student at Georgetown University, and certainly it was one of many cases of supposed possession that he researched before writing his book, which is a work of FICTION.
    My father went to considerable lengths to protect from exposure the name of the child involved in that case, and it is a shame to see people tossing around his name as though it is some sort of achievement to “be in the know.” I certainly don’t speak for my father in any way, but my own opinion is that this man’s privacy ought to be respected. If he had wanted to tell his story and cash in on all the hoopla surrounding “The Exorcist” (as one of your posters suggests he ought to do) then he would have written a book about the TRUE story many years ago. Personally, I don’t believe this person was ever possessed by a demon or demons – and as I have said, “The Exorcist” is not about him in any case.
    Why not just enjoy the film for what it is: an entertaining, thought-provoking, well-acted and brilliantly-crafted work of cinematic storytelling?
    By the way, Captain, this is a nifty website you’ve got going!
