“The Haunted Boy” is the haunting true story behind the 1973 movie “The Exorcist.” This movie is about the boy who inspired the movie with Linda Blair. If you like to be scared for Halloween, this movie is for you.

“With that in mind, paranormal filmmakers Philip and Christopher Booth set out to make “The Haunted Boy: The Secret Diary of the Exorcist,” based on the infamous, truly terrifying story of a 13-year-old boy who was allegedly possessed by the devil in St. Louis in 1949,” according to AOL News.

There are only six copies of the journal about the boy’s possession. There are stories of his bed being levitated, the boy glowing green, and it affecting the neighbors, a priest’s nose broken, and much more.

The makers of the film, the Booth brothers, tried to get the original furniture from the room where the boy was allegedly possessed, but it is locked up in a military facility. This is one scary movie, and it’s all too true.

The movie “The Haunted Boy: The Secret Diary of the Exorcist” will make its world premiere in St. Louis on October 28.
