6. The demon from the Exorcist

I remember the first time I watch The Exorcist. I was six years old, knew that my mom and I had used a Ouija board and was certain that I was going to end up like Linda Blair. So to stop this from happening, I slept on the floor for a week. Because I thought that the demon would only possess me if I was in my bed.

In retrospect, should I have seen this movie that young? No, but still, demons are terrifying. The Demogorgon is something we can see and fight. Demons we don’t know exist. They take over our beings and come for us and we’re helpless unless we bathe in Holy Water every day.

There are enough movies out there showing us what it is like to be possessed to freak us all out. And some of them are based on real events. Many look at demons and wonder if it is just a psychological problem or really a demon taking someone over.

Either way, I don’t want it. I don’t want the devil speaking through me and talking about gross things while I projectile vomit all over my bedroom. I’m good, demons can stay away. I’d take on the Demogorgon over a demon any day.
