When I first heard that there was going to be a television series based on The Exorcist, I was skeptical. I knew that the Demons would be portrayed in a typical way, as it is Hollywood after all. But I had a bit of hope.
In some parts, especially in the first couple of episodes, the Demons were shown to have some measure of power but as the weeks went on, it was getting obvious what the final outcome would be. The Demons were evil, deranged, sadistic, and perverse, and of course, they listened to the Catholic priests. The creators of the show obviously didn’t do any research or they would have learned the true nature of Demons.
Demons have been used by the horror industry as a source of entertainment for years and it is not going to change. They are used to scare and to give validity to Christianity and its prophecies. This can be seen in movies such as Damien Omen III and Bless The Child. Satan and the Demons always lose the battle.
If it was any other god, adherents of the religion would be up in arms, but it has always been acceptable to make Satan and the Demons a source of humour or horror. No one says anything about it. Most Satanists love horror movies that have a ‘Satanic’ theme, but where is our outrage and disgust when our god is defeated over and over again?
We know that Satan and the Demons, ancient beings, don’t fear humans, and if someone were to shove a crucifix in their face, they would laugh. The Catholic Church may control their people, but it is hilarious to think they have power over these ancient ones. Yet that is what it wants everyone to believe, but it is just an institution made by men who worship a god desperate for power.
It is my hope that one day there will be Satanists who will have the passion and desire to make movies. Ones that portray Satan and the Demons in their true form.
In The Exorcist, Pazuzu was the Demon that was given the bad rap… the 'Lord of Fevers and Plagues.'
